I love small bags as much as Paula Deen loves her butter, so it should come as no surprise that I’m now enamoured with the Mini Heroine collection from Alexander McQueen, a newish addition to the Heroine family of bags for F/W13. Measuring just 18.5 cm across at its widest point by around 22 cm in height, she’s tiny, all right, being barely taller than say, a full-grown chihuahua. But therein lies the appeal, a small, fun little number that’s great for clubbing or light carefree weekends.
Available in hardy grained leather (so you don’t have to worry about scratches and nicks), as well as smooth polished calfskin (now this I’ll worry ever so slightly and ‘baby’ it a little more), they are priced at GBP975 apiece. In Singapore, you’ll find a couple in various hues at On Pedder, where they are selling for SGD2350 a pop.
And while you’re there, don’t forget to check out the Mini Studded Heroine, which I blogged about previously. Also available at On Pedder (saw it at the boutique at Ngee Ann City just now), where it retails for SGD2400, this one’s truly a little wonder worth having in your personal collection.
