I may sound biased, but it’s true when I say I haven’t yet seen an Alexander McQueen bag I don’t like. The skull clutches are such iconic pieces, the De Manta clutches fun and affordable. And as far as the Heroine collection is concerned, even though they are adding new styles every season, they can seem to do no wrong.
Take the new Alexander McQueen Studded Heroine Chain Shoulder for instance, part of the Heroine line-up but in a very different shape/style. Almost square in shape, the bag measures about 31 cm across by 30 cm, with a depth of around 9 cm. Studded all over with tiny studs, its most distinguishing feature has got to be its rather sexy double chain strap, which will sit well (and quite comfortably) on the shoulder given that the top part of the strap is leather.
Sassy and sexy all at once, there are two slight downsides. Firstly, I expect it to be a tad heavy as it is, which won’t make carrying it any easier when it’s full. Secondly, it’s priced at USD2980 (that makes it almost SGD3800 after conversion) and in my opinion a tad pricey for a bag this simple. Pretty, yes, but a tad expensive too.
