Alexander McQueen bags have made their appearance here and there on PurseBlog, and while we haven’t necessarily covered them in detail for some time now, we hear you when you guys ask us for more variety! Today we’re giving you a look at the new to the scene Alexander McQueen Story bag. True to its name, The Story takes inspiration from the sharing of stories, which is said to have long since been at the heart of the McQueen house. I’ve always loved the McQueen aesthetic as it was different, sort of goth-chic and easy to spot amongst other brands and I’m excited to give this bag a good look.
This new design is sleek in shape and design, featuring minimal branding and and a chic jewelry-inspired handle. Its feminine shape is ideal for everyday, yet it can transition well from day to night as it features a dainty top handle strap as well as a detachable crossbody strap. My favorite feature of the bag is the double flap closure, which adds a little something extra to the clean, fairly structured bag design. The Story bag is new for Pre-Spring 2020, but it has already been seen on various style stars such as Kaia Gerber and Selena Gomez.
The Story bag comes in a wide variety of colors aside from the Khaki and Black shown here. Each bag is crafted of smooth calf leather with contrasting trim. The black is the most bold, featuring bright red leather detailing, The handle is accented with two studs and is made of an organic brass-finished metal. Inside there is one main compartment and a slit card pocket as well as a front zippered pocket. In addition to the top handle and the crossbody strap, the bag can be carried as a clutch by sliding a hand through the metal handle. Discover more via Alexander McQueen.
