Still one of my favourite bags from Alexander McQueen after all this while, the Heroine has become a house mainstay in her own right, coming out in various permutations in size and style season after season. And while the ones covered in micro studs from F/W13 were sexy and the S/S13 one featuring cut-outs border on voyeuristic, there’s nothing more classic than the one shown above, from the F/W14 collection and simply made of textured leather.
Measuring 27 cm across by 20 cm, it’s all boxy with rounded edges and lined with suede for that extra luxurious touch. Sporting 2 separate compartments (there is a flap beneath another flap and thus the 2 compartments), it’s also one of those bags that’s smart enough for work and sexy enough for play.
Available via Net-A-Porter and priced at GBP1195, which makes it around the SGD2400 mark after conversion, it’s a good price for something that actually ticks both form and function at the same time. Oh, and the fact that it comes in Gray Melange? Extra points.
