We didn't realize there was a battle for the world's toughest commemorative tote bag until we saw Alexander Wang's collaboration with the new Opening Ceremony outpost in the Ace Hotel. It's black, it's studded, it's made of some kind of scary reinforced canvas, and our Strand bag has been cowering behind the sofa ever since first laying eyes on it. Pick one up for $125 at the Opening Ceremony Ace. They say they have plenty in stock, but you can't get them anywhere else, so don't dally.
