If this bag was available last week when I wrote my piece on Reusable Shopper Totes, this packaway shopper by Alexander MQueen would have been on the top of my list. I have an obsession with Alexander McQueen stuff – bags, shoes, blazers, dresses, you name it! The very first thing I ever purchased by the designer was years ago (maybe 4), it was a grey-ish blue blazer, that I still occasionally wear to this day. That was the first item that kinda kicked off my obsession. I have many pieces by the designer in my closet that have truly stood the test of time. Quality is always at it’s best. Which is exactly what I’m looking for in a reusable shopper tote – it’s a requirement! Like I mentioned in my previous post, there is a grocery bag ban here in Seattle so it’s essential to have a tote that can withstand high-usage and being tossed around. Now this isn’t a tote that I would recommend using at the grocery store, unless you’re just picking up a couple small items. This is more of a fashionable statement shopper. One that I would used when out shopping for clothes, or on one of my weekly trips to Pike Place Market ~ flowers & baguette. And the bag is made of nylon which makes it a cinch to clean after each use. Also this “Packaway” shopper cleverly folds down into its own zipped leather carry pouch – brilliant! Makes it easy to store in your day bag.
Now can somebody please help me out with this print. What is it? The mystery digital mirrored pattern to me looks like it could be floral – the darker brown part resembles a rose.
