It is no secret that we are huge fans of Alexander McQueen at PurseBlog. His over the top fashion shows have editors, bloggers, and anyone who caught a glimpse of the show talking for months. Alexander McQueen himself is a private man, but we would give anything to be in his head (follow him on Twitter for the best chance to do so).
Alexander McQueen Handbags and Purses(Page 6)
We’re talking more than we normally do about Alexander McQueen, and that’s not just because he’s one of my favorite designers. Well, that’s part of the reason, since I’m the one picking the bags, but it’s not the entire thing!
There are a lot of things that I love. I love Alexander McQueen. I love black and white patterns. I love challenging design. I love it when function and art collide and something interesting results.
But I don’t love the Alexander McQueen Houndstooth Tote.
I love tiny, sophisticated bags that make a statement. Kind of like Alice Cullen, who is petite and graceful but packs a mean punch (that’s for you, fellow Twilight fans). That is why I was so excited when I saw the Alexander McQueen Clover Medium Satchel.
Everyone has that girlfriend in their group that is, after approximately a glass and a half of white wine, completely hammered, carrying her high heels in her hand, and asking everyone if they’ve seen her handbag. And no one has seen it, because she left it sitting on the back of the toilet at the last bar you were in, and its contents have already been pillaged.
I think that this clutch is just about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen, but I realize that it’s hardly everyone’s taste. I have a very particular look for things that I tend to buy – I sent Megs a link to a pair of Chloe motorcycle boots that I loved recently, and her reaction was “Oh, those are so you.” They were covered in zippers and buckles, black leather with silver hardware.
As you have probably noticed, I adore structured bags. They have such an inherent sophistication in them, like someone plucked them out of some ancient photograph and spiced them up a bit, of course. This Alexander McQueen Izzie Clutch is the latest bag in this shape that I have found.
According to one of my college graphics professors, blue is the favorite color of an overwhelming majority of Americans. Before dropping this tidbit of knowledge on us, she demonstrated her point by going around he room and asking each of us, one by one, what our favorite color was.
