Sarah Burton had large shoes to fill when she stepped in at Alexander McQueen. But her transition has not only been seamless but has also continued to bring us gorgeous pieces. Right now I am absolutely obsessed with the Alexander McQueen 3D Hobo. While Neiman Marcus describes this bag as flower-detail, I would like to clarify: this my friends is black leather cutwork leaves. In a time when we have come to expect florals from the likes of Valentino, I feel refreshed with this look from McQueen.

Truth be told, leather flowers are gorgeous but with these floral leaves we have an earthy spirit brought to the design. The Alexander McQueen 3D Hobo is an ethereal beauty, and I can not stop any part of me from wanting it.


Romantic would be another word used to describe this bag and I am just smitten with the simple hobo shape with its botanical and gold Western buckle touches. If you paid close attention to the McQueen Spring 2011 runway show, both leaves and Western buckles were a resounding theme. The idea of partnering Western with earthy is not what would first come to mind as a good match, but it works wonderfully.

Come to think of it, after seeing this bag I am feeling underwhelmed by all the expected florals we typically get. More leaves please. Thank you to Alexander McQueen for bringing us something the same yet entirely different. Order through Neiman Marcus for $2,350.

      Agreed! It’s gorgeous!

  • MizzJ

    Beautiful!! I just want to reach out and grab it. The leather looks supple, I love the simple shape and those leaves almost look like wings. Overall I find this bag to be more gothic in mood than earthy, but I still love it!

    Wow, it’s a work of art! Too bad it’s way out of my price range for a hobo :)

  • gpc

    Megs, the crossbody version on NM is just as amazing and beautiful. I like it just slightly more than this one.

    Really like this one.

  • 19yearslater

    Totally lust-worthy. I agree that leaves are a little more interesting than flowers, and along with the Western touches they perfectly enhance a classic and simple shape. Swoon.

  • Cathy Fitz

    Very nice, and thank goodness that’s leather and not feathers!

  • LDJ

    I don’t know why I don’t care for it. Its a nice looking bag though. *shrug ghoulders*

    I love this bag. It kind of reminds me of what Gaucho could have been like, had Dior decided to keep it in the collection for reiterations like this hobo. It’s like Valentino and Dior in one; only the stitches in the center and the corners bother me. At this price, sewing from a larger piece of leather would have been nice.
