Alexander McQueen Faithful Tote


Is there any need to state the obvious about Alexander McQueen? Probably not, but I'll do it anyway. No one does 'urban', 'industrial' and 'edgy' like the British designer. McQueen has an innate talent for making over-the-top designs seem, well, quite mainstream. I mean this as a compliment. Nothing on a McQueen handbag is a throw-away decorative accent merely placed there to cater to trends. No other designer takes a trend an interprets it with such sophistication as McQueen. The Faithful Tote (pictured) is a perfect example of how to translate trends in a way most women can appreciate.

This large 16 x 14 x 7 black leather tote has plenty going on. We have a menagerie of zippers, studs, origami-like folds and piping all competing for attention, and, yet, they come together in this wacky and fabulous design. The Faithful Tote is one of the trendiest bags you can imagine, but I could easily picture someone carrying this bag in downtown NYC a few years from now without looking like a fashion victim. If you keep your wardrobe simple and polished, the Alexander McQueen Faithful Tote will take care of the rest. I dare upper East-siders to tote this design around. That's right, ladies. Leave the Birkins at home. It's time to shake things up a bit.
