With the unmistakable four-ring ‘knuckle’ and boxy good looks, the Mini Jewelled Satchel is undoubtedly a go-to bag at Alexander McQueen. Besides starring as a show-stopping embellishment, the rings cleverly double up as a handle that lets your fingers slide through. Now, the versatile flap bag undergoes a refreshing new update for Spring-Summer 2023.
To be frank, its SGD4120 price tag might not be for everyone. However, two key factors might change your mind if you’re on the fence. For one, the chunky dégradé-effect chain is a huge upgrade from the standard curb chain adorning the classic Mini Jewelled Satchel.
Secondly, the design team swapped out the metallic hardware on the ‘knuckle’ for a row of Swarovski crystal-encrusted rings in a tonal finish. They’re much shinier, and thus the perfect more-is-more take on the beloved Alexander McQueen design.
Measuring 17.5 cm by 9.5 cm, the updated Mini Jewelled Satchel is available in either Red or Royal Blue. Spotted on display at ION Orchard, the bag is also available at Alexander McQueen Singapore’s online store. With both sporting the oversized chain strap in a matching hue, will it be a fiery red or soothing blue for you?
