Alexander McQueen Medium Faithful Tote

Sorry for the three-peat on top handled messenger bags in 24 hours but everywhere I turn, there is yet another style so I feel compelled to comment.  The latest is the Faithful tote from Alexander McQueen– I adore McQueen but not really feeling this bag for some reason.  The overall design is cool but the proportions of the straps are too small and feel like an afterthought.  As in, hum, everyone else is sticking straps on (and yes YSL brought back the look first) so we should, too.  And with so much going on, the zippers and unique stitching get lost in the shuffle.  And really, do we need a giant Q in the middle of the flap?  Alexander McQueen Medium Faithful Tote $1,450

    I love McQueen, I have a few handbags from him and love them. I am not sure about this one, it looks alot like Balenciaga.

    Hi Tina, I got this bag as a present…..and i thought the same as you….. but actually now that it’s been used…..is less banana shaped….. i love it , it so rock chic…..everybody is asking me, where’s that bag from….. the Q logo dosen’t bother me…… over all it’s my bag for next summer….. i hope he keeps doing it next season. xx Coco

    I’m not a fan of this design. His flapper messenger bag was a million times better than this. However, anything is better than the PS1. A totally overrated bag. I also agree that this looks like something from Balenciaga.

    I think this is just a bit… uninspired. I hate to say it but to me it looks like it could come from any number of mid-range indie labels, eek.

    I think I like it more in the blue, can’t put my finger on why though.

    It not only looks like a balenciaga, it is an uninspired copycat, especially the blue one! On the rag forever!
