Many things can (and have) gone wrong as far as bags are concerned whenever it’s made to look transparent or perforated. Short of bringing up past horrors that would just take too long, here’s a perfect example of when it’s right, it’s perfect.
Introducing the S/S13 Alexander McQueen Honeycomb Leather Heroine, a beautiful example of how cut-outs should be done. Made of shiny (they call it mirror) patent leather that features a honeycomb pattern, this one in medium measures 33 cm by 30 cm. Unlined on the inside, you’ll find the bag comes with a small pouch, perhaps to make up for that tad lack of privacy and preventing your smaller essentials from slipping out.
Priced at GBP1995, there’s also another variation, the Honeycomb Leather Heroine Shoulder that’s now available via Net-A-Porter and priced at GBP1495.
And speaking of beautiful, here’s another S/S13 offering that’s positively drool-worthy. The Alexander McQueen Honeycomb Knucklebox Clutch is covered with embroidered gold bees on tulle, burnished hardware and Swarovski crystal rings. In other words? Love.
