Alexander McQueen Elvie Patent Handbag
Whenever I think of Alexander McQueen, I always seem to think of skulls. If its not the skulls that are coming to mind, then I think of black & white, sleek & simple, or a little bit bad girlish. But I have found recently that there is a lot more to Alexander McQueen than I had originally thought. Net-A-Porter is currently chalked full of brightly colored, Japanese-inspired, and retro-inspired items from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2008 Collection. Wow! What a shock that was!
So I have pictured above the Alexander McQueen Elvie Patent Handbag for Spring 2008. What I like most about this particular Elvie bag is its bright purple color and slick croco-embossed patent leather. I also like how it feels a little bit retro with its framed styling and turnlock closure. The pleats add a lot of interesting texture as well, on top of the already interesting croco pattern. Since the bag looks kind of small in the regular picture, I have also included a picture of a model holding the bag (Net-A-Porter does not provide measurements). To my surprise, the bag appears to be quite similar in size to a Marc Jacobs Stam. That’s a relief, since this bag retails for $2,150.
