Alexander McQueen has been one of my favorite designers since I was a teenager. I love the way he makes his edgy punk rock aesthetic look glamorous. Which is why I was a little surprised at the almost conservative design of the Lock-It. It's got a beautifully classic appeal, but it just doesn't scream McQueen.
The deep burgundy leather was the first clue that this is a new approach by the line. It's dark and elegant, but also very versatile. The small gold studs act more like punctuation marks than centerpieces. The way they edge the bag adds definition to the shape, but they aren't edgy like so many of his studded designs. The Lock-It definitely has a more minimal appeal that will make it palatable to a less rock star-centric demographic.
Even the shape of the Lock-It seems restrained compared to McQueen's usual fare. It's a bottom heavy rectangle with two curvy top handles. The shape and color combined make this bag look a little bit 70s, particularly with the gold accents. If you squint, it also seems to have a touch of western influence.
At $2,495, the Lock-It is priced on the low end of the investment bag range. It's designed to be a practical and functional every day bag with a few interesting details. It does its job well, but frankly, I miss that old Alexander McQueen attitude.
