Alexander McQueen Python Faithful Tote


When I first brought you the Alexander McQueen Faithful Tote last month, I was instantly impressed by the way McQueen interpreted a trend in such a funky yet refined manner. An all black leather bag with multiple zipper accents sounds crazy to many women, but what if that same design were clad in python, not leather. Would that peak your curiosity? Would you give the Faithful Tote a second chance? The answer to those questions should be an unequivocal YES! Just look at this exotic-skinned pile of goodness. If I had about $8000 lying around, I'd buy this bag quicker than what an ice cream cone would last outside school doors (that, BTW, is a Cuban saying that looses some of its charm in translation, but you get the gist of it). The point is, I wouldn't hesitate adding it to my collection. The python exterior and edgy zippered detailing work together better than the leather version does. All fantasizing aside, I do think this bag is ridiculously priced, even for python. It will remain accessible only to the celebrities or the wealthy. I'll have to wait for a celeb sighting to get my Faithful Python Tote thrills.

Purchase the Alexander McQueen Faithful Python Tote for $7860 thru the designer's website
