It’s been a while since anything Alexander McQueen appeared in this size, but seeing how adorable their new Box Bag is, you know a post is in order, because #goodthingsmustshare right?
In a totally new shape that’s never been seen before at Alexander McQueen, the best way is to describe it as simply, a box, hence the name Box Bag. Beneath its seemingly simple leather exterior is the suede-lined interior that comes with not 1, not 2 but three distinct compartments, perfect for those who are OCD when it comes to organisation, with a flap pocket and a zipped compartment on either side.
On the outside, it’s pretty straightforward, which is also why the design works. For starters, there’s the diamond-shaped rotation clasp, 4 metal feet at the bottom and not 1 but 2 slings. The first is a sexy chain-link sling, the second, a leather sling that’s adjustable. And depending on your mood, you can use either or both depending on the look you’re looking for.
Launched in two sizes, the Box Bag 16 (16 cm by 12 cm) and the Box Bag 19 (19 cm by 14.5 cm), they start from SGD2605 for the 16 and SGD3026 for the 19, depending on the leather you pick which ranges from grained calf to buffed suede and even embossed croc. And for those looking for something a little more precious, some of the 16 do come decorated with silver grommets, while another comes with adorned with crystals. You just have to head down to their boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Scotts Square to see if this is the box, I mean bag, for you.
