Alexander McQueen Wishbone Shopper

Do you have $6,380 to blow? That’s how much the Wishbone shopper from Alexander McQueen will set you back. And no, there is no crocodile trim but you can tell that a lot of labor was wasted on this fringed mess. I don’t hate the bag, just parts of it. Let’s be sweet and discuss what I love about it. I love the wishbone rivets, the basket weave leather, and the whip stitched top edge– it all looks so luxurious and well made. But the awful shaggy fringe destroys any chance of this bag ever seeing the light of day on my arms. This sucker is also huge at 52cm/20″ wide. I do like McQueen’s attitude of let them eat cake. Why should he care if the world is in a global wide recession? His job is to design and stir our senses; figuring out how to pay for it is our problem.

    I actually like this bag at first glance, fringe and all. But I would not spend the money even if we were not in a recession. This is a cool bag if you a hip boho/soho artistic downtown or if you are the Olsen or if you are still under 30..Ironically most girls under 30 (or even some over 30) would not be able to afford this even if it’s half the price. It’s definitely overpriced no matter how you cut it.

    Sorry Ping but this is hideous, even for $500 I would not buy it. The fringes are too short and look like dog hair.

    I like it, but I don’t like it enough to part with that obscene amount of money.

    I really like it too – but OUCH! It’s not even an exotic…
