Alexander McQueen Legend Medium Leather Tote: Legends of the Summer (and Spring and Fall…)

Categories:Other Brands

Alexander McQueen Legend Medium Leather Tote

There’s a reason this Alexander McQueen style is named the Legend. A tote like this is in it for the long haul. We’ve already loved in it graphic floral-printed form, as well as a more structured and shapely incarnation, but it’s this newest edition that has me staring. Classic simplicity is easy (and common) to come by, so real allure is all in the details. Whipstitched trim and buckled straps with serious punch add up to a daily tote that leaves plenty of room to showcase your true personality. Actually, this spacious tote leaves plenty of room, period.

Like any great detail, the straps aren’t strictly here for looks. With your choice of three push-tabs, they are adjustable – which is so genius because figuring out the perfect drop is almost always a problem. One size does not fit all. Plus, with options, you can also switch it up and determine the right length for carrying the bag top-handle or slinging it comfortably over the shoulder.

Usually, these big, lightweight totes are designed to just stay open (which means you also have to keep your eyes open, to avoid losing stuff), but here the interior comes with two tabs that cinch the sides and then snap shut. It also comes with a removable pouch, a total bonus when you need one to toss in other bags. Obviously, I’m already loving a nice shade of white for the season, though best of all, this is truly an all-season white. Alexander McQueen Legend

Alexander McQueen Multi-Colour Mini Heroine

Categories:Other Brands

alexander_mcqueen_multi-colour-mini-heroineIf you know me well enough, you’ll know the type of bags that get me every time. And from Alexander McQueen comes a new S/S15 offering that’s only smaller than small which is the way I like it, but also brightly-hued and a colour blocker’s dream.

Known as the Mini Heroine, it’s McQueen’s take on the top handle framed bag that’s not only all stiff and proper but also voluptuously-shaped with its rounded side curves. Just 18.5 cm across by around 22 cm in height, it’s the perfect fun party bag complete with a long enough sling to wear across the body. Priced at USD1625online, it’s also a tad pricey, the only negative in my long list of yesses.

If, however, you prefer something sans top handles but still smallish and fun to carry around, you could also check out her sister, the Mini Heroine Shoulder in the same colour combo for GBP895 via Net-A-Porter. Still pricey, yes, but no less cute.

Alexander McQueen was known for his cutting edge designs, his self named label continues this legacy. The label’s avant garde designs are probably best represented in their range of box clutches. The brand contrasts soft and feminine themes with their iconic skull motif as can be seen in thisOstrich feather clutch or this floral motif clutch. Following in the same floral motif collection, is this ice pink silk brocade clutch, which is covered in intricate appliqué of organza and crepe beaded flowers. The clutch is lined with luxe leather and contrasted with a pale pink Swarovski embellished skull clasp. This statement piece adds a level of feminine exuberance to any outfit and retails for $2,795. The bag measures 7” in width, 4” in height and 2” in depth, just large enough to fit your lipstick and cell phone.

Trick to Authenticate Alexander McQueen Skull Scarves Fast

Categories:Other Brands

Thorough authentication of an Alexander McQueen scarf can be complicated and requires inspecting logos, tagging, edges, design details and overall pattern. However, for iconic Alexander McQueen skull scarves, there's a nifty trick that can tell you if that skull scarf is a real or fake Alexander McQueen FAST.

Alexander Mcqueen skull scarves

This trick applies to the most iconic Alexander Mcqueen scarf, the classic skull scarves. These are the thin fabric (silk chiffon or modal/cashmere blend) Alexander McQueen scarves with solid skull patterns.

Alexander Mcqueen skull logo brand

Take a look at the Alexander McQueen logo on the scarf. It is in the same color as the skulls or near the same color as the skulls.

Alexander Mcqueen authentication trick

Now, hold this area up to the light! As shown above, on an authentic scarf, the Alexander McQueen logo stands out differently compared to the rest of the scarf. Whereas on a fake scarf, the logo will blend like the skulls and the rest of the scarf. Quick and easy, right? And, most fake skull scarves will not pass this trick!

If you ever come across an Alexander McQueen scarf at a secondhand store, be sure to put this fast easy trick to the test!

Alexander McQueen Bags: Ziggy and De Manta

Categories:Other Brands

Alexander McQueen has such a distinctive look. The styles are modern, sleek and a touch dangerous. Today, I wanted to share an outfit with two Alexander McQueen bags, the Ziggy and De Manta to demonstrate the beauty of this designer line.

The De Manta bag is such a young and modern bag. It is structured in its own unique way, and is sure to look very different from the rest of your bag collection. The only negative thing that I have to say about this bag is it's not the most functional purse. Like all clutches, there is not a handle, so it takes up one of your hands. Also, if you are one to constantly open and close your bag to retrieve items, it can become a hassle with this bag. You must bend back the magnetic folds before unzipping. While this is not difficult, it can become annoying.

This bag can easily hold your essentials: phone, wallet, a small notebook, and a few pieces of cosmetics.

Ziggy

The Ziggy is just a hip large black leather bag. It brings a bit of youth and edge to any outfit, and is very functional. It's extremely easy to open and close quickly, super roomy and is worn on the shoulder.
