Zoe Saldana wearing the medium black Heroine bag
There was a time where accessories were all about IT bags. Thankfully, one the whole, that's changed. Today women seem more interested in splashing out on a bag that screams quality and craftsmanship rather than who it was designed by, as is apparent from the current penchant for bags from Celine, The Row and Victoria Beckham. Following suit is Alexander McQueen whose latest bag, the Heroine, is the perfect personification of that shift.
Aside from the flap coming over the handles, the bag is a classic and has the timeless quality that we all want right now, especially when being asked to splash out major dollars. The style, which has already been seen on the arm of Zoe Saldana, is compact but has an expandable feature to make sure the bag always fits whatever you need to carry. If you have your eyes set on it, be prepared to pay because the 'cheapest' style in oxblood suede comes in at £1,345 with prices going up to £22,295 for the black crocodile version.
To celebrate the launch, the brand has teamed up with still life photographer Dan Tibin Smith on their first ever accessory campaign.
