After lusting after so many quirky handbags from Alexander McQueen, I was surprised to see this Mini Book clutch amongst the late designer's last collection. It's just so traditional and reserved; it's hard to believe it came from the same man that gave us skull adorned box clutches. But adjust your expectations a little and it's easy to warm to this classic purse.
It looks like glossy crocodile skin, but this purse is actually made from embossed black leather. It does a convincing imitation of the exotic skin, but this hide is more durable than real reptile would be. That's a good thing too, because a basic black bag like this will always find a place in your evening wardrobe.
The styling is minimal, with just a pair of golden bars to hold the triangular flap in place. A magnetic clasp gives us some extra security. That simplicity extends to the interior, where we have just a small open pocket for holding our credit cards and receipts. This space is a bit larger than I expected thanks to the accordion design, but it could never be called opulent.
This is a beautiful little purse, but I wonder whether Alexander McQueen has done enough to justify that hefty $1115 price tag. Given its simplicity, I have a feeling bargain hunters could find something similar for a lot less.
