Check out the clip for yourself above, and decide if you think the bags—which range from  $995 to $2,250—are worth all the hype; with a classic silhouette, simple black leather, and minimal silver hardware, we hardly think they’re ground-breaking. But we’ll defer to Wang, who decidedly has more expertise in this field!
