Introducing the Alexander McQueen Legend Handbag

Things have been a bit quiet on the Alexander McQueen handbag front this past year. Other than the Heroine, McQueen hasn’t had a bag that we’ve covered much in the past year and a half, which is significant when you consider that few years ago, it had hit after hit.

Just before the year ends, Alexander McQueen has introduced the Legend handbag, which is part of the Resort 2015 collection. The Legend consists of 3 key styles (a tote, shopper and clutch), and the shopper is the standout of the bunch. The shape of the bag indicates that the flared gusset trend, popularized by Céline, isn’t going anywhere quite yet. The base of the bag has structured corners, and as you go from the bottom to the top of the bag, the wider width finishes with a curved, zippered top.

Unlike many designs that seem to be greatly inspired by other popular bags, the Alexander McQueen Legend has its own aesthetic, with clean lines, smooth leather and an overall elegant feel. The closest bags I can think of that have a similar look are the Ralph Lauren Ricky and the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit, but the Ricky offers many more design features than the pared-down Legend and the Soft Lockit is less structured.

I really love the Legend mini shopper with the crossbody strap, which is in line with my previous bag picks for 2014. The bag comes in a variety of colors, sizes, materials and styles, many of which we share below. Prices range from $1,525 for the mini shopper to $2,395 for the tote.

    Might look like LV Lockit but it certainly is much prettier…at least I think it will hold up it’s shape better…

      Yes you’re right, it does – I added a little about that in the article now!

      This bag has a tad more structure which should hold up better, especially the bottom corners and the wider top – you can see the structure in the bag at those points

      I agree I’ve been sort of vacillating back and forth on the Lockit but I almost like these better

    I just bought this bag rom a local boutique, funny on the saks website it says lined in suede, but mine is lined in twill. But I’m ok, the store was doing their annual friends and family so I got it for 20% off. It’s gorgeous, and really comfortable bag. Very lightweight, but sturdy feeling.
