Alexander McQueen Box Bag

It’s been a while since anything Alexander McQueen appeared in this size, but seeing how adorable their new Box Bag is, you know a post is in order, because #goodthingsmustshare right?

In a totally new shape that’s never been seen before at Alexander McQueen, the best way is to describe it as simply, a box, hence the name Box Bag. Beneath its seemingly simple leather exterior is the suede-lined interior that comes with not 1, not 2 but three distinct compartments, perfect for those who are OCD when it comes to organisation, with a flap pocket and a zipped compartment on either side.

On the outside, it’s pretty straightforward, which is also why the design works. For starters, there’s the diamond-shaped rotation clasp, 4 metal feet at the bottom and not 1 but 2 slings. The first is a sexy chain-link sling, the second, a leather sling that’s adjustable. And depending on your mood, you can use either or both depending on the look you’re looking for.

Launched in two sizes, the Box Bag 16 (16 cm by 12 cm) and the Box Bag 19 (19 cm by 14.5 cm), they start from SGD2605 for the 16 and SGD3026 for the 19, depending on the leather you pick which ranges from grained calf to buffed suede and even embossed croc. And for those looking for something a little more precious, some of the 16 do come decorated with silver grommets, while another comes with adorned with crystals. You just have to head down to their boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Scotts Square to see if this is the box, I mean bag

The bag may have a somewhat classical design but it’s anything but staid, pairing well with everything from ultra-feminine dresses to neo-grunge street style looks. It is available in four color and skinvariants: grainy calf leather in Black and Bordeaux, black and white snake spine with calf leather details and our personal favorite a Silver Blue soft calf leather. Celebrities may love the plain black, but we’re head over heels in love with this fresh, icy blue shade. Devoid of unnecessary decorative hardware, the bag bears a silver stamped on McQueen logo.

The calf leather bags are priced at $2,095 while the snake finish comes with a heavier $3,670 price tag.

Other Brands

Alexander-McQueen-Poppy-Cage-Knuckle-Box-Clutch

Alexander McQueen is The Queen when it comes to producing such outrageous (but lovable) pieces, and the Poppy Cage Knuckle Box Clutch is no exception. Of course, we’re gushing about this unique piece because it looks so edgy and luxe, we’d want one ourselves! It’s so action-packed in a way – and at times, we’d like to channel our inner Godfather and put on some badass (and stylized) knuckles while walking the streets in style. It’s that good.

This piece is a structured glossy snakeskin box clutch which comes in a black color. The surprise lies in the unique detailing – the Knuckleduster clasp with 3D poppy details and Swarovski crystal accents gives it all away. We’re sold at this point, not kidding! This piece goes well with night-outs, as well as basic outfits, just to give it some finishing touches.

Measuring 6.5” x 4” x 2” inches (L x H x W), you can get your very own Poppy Cage Knuckle Box Clutch for $2525 USD or €2259 EUR, via Ssense.

LFW DIARY DAY 1

Margo and Me_BH_3650Hi guys! I am so excited to announce that this is a very special week as I am doing something new on the blog that I haven’t done before! A daily diary! With all of my recent travels, we have been working our booties off to capture some really awesome content that will bring you with us on our adventures to London and beyond! With this being my first time in my whole life that I’ve been to the UK, I have a whole lot to share. Let’s rewind a little and let me tell you about my first day.

NYFW was gone and done before you could say “fashion”.  But on the very last day, a London Fashion Week survival kit package arrived from Push PR London packed with a few travel essentials like the coziest socks for the plane from Scotland Shop and a cashmere sweater from Eileen Fisher. Beauty essentials from Zoeva Cosmetics, Holistic Silk and Julien Farel hair care products. And last but not least, some more than necessary reading material from Company Magazine and all arriving in a trustyTusting carry on bag. My favorite goodie however was an engraved Margo & Me necklace from I Love Designer, who doesn’t love an engraved name plate necklace!

Just a hop, skip and a jump over the pond and suddenly we had arrived to the chicest hotel, One Aldwych which is situated just across the street from the hub of all of the shows, Somerset House. Getting off of the plane, I had just one hour before my first show started. The fast paced theme song from Home Alone was playing in my head as I raced to get ready and run across the street! The street style photographers in London are no joke, it’s kind of amazing! They are all so friendly and interested in snapping your photo. I showed them a little love and look, I even made it into the (web) pages of Grazie Magazine!

Out of all of the shows that I attended that day, there was one that really stood out to me for it’s unique presentation – something that is very unique to LFW are the obscure locations and settings that presentations were done in (I loved it!). McQ by Alexander McQueen was showcasing the new Spring 2015 collection down a side alley in a chic warehouse setting. Clean, white walls with nothing but crisp campaign images gracing them housed the beautiful new collection. I can be seen viewing one of my favorite groupings in the photo above; the white eyelet pieces. Actually not eyelet, rather hole punched fabric to give it a lacey feel. You know how much I love lace! Spring by McQueen was just a dream!

We snapped a few photos around the quaint neighborhood that the venue was located. It was a quintessential London street and the sun was setting so beautifully – golden hour! First day and I’m already in love with this city…
