Alexander McQueen is a brand that has curated narratives to portray its philosophy via clothing for the longest time. However, as winds of fashion change, designers are driven to explore ideas. Just as Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, experiments with a best-selling accessory — the bag. Even though the label has not given many iconic handbags lately, the knot and knuckle clutches, Story, and Heroine bag are some styles that itemize for the list of famed bags. With the arrival of the Alexander McQueen Curve bag, the game has changed as the style has already become a contender of the ‘It’ bags this season. Next-gen actors, models, and influencers are already in love with the bag, so we decided to take a deep dive into the Curve for our pick this week.
When Contemporary Visions Meet Nostalgic Notes
The Curve bag is a testament to Burton’s unswerving commitment to her predecessor, Lee Alexander McQueen. It limns a stripped-back approach on a cylindrical structure that exudes elegance and strength all in one. The sculptural design is then embraced by an exaggerated harness that crisscrosses and intersects on the front. The allusion of the harness becomes central to the silhouette as it draws a reference to the pattern created by Lee himself; it almost emerges as a motif seen across profuse creations of the House. While preserving the Maison’s heritage, the addition of modern elements like the flap closure framing an elliptical shape makes it a desirable accessory. As fascinating as the outline of the bucket bag is, the way it was introduced was even more captivating — in a Spring/Summer 2021 film called ‘First Light’ shot along the banks of river Thames that harks back to its British roots and dark romanticism.
“Shape, silhouette, and volume, the beauty of the bare bones of clothing stripped back to its essence – a world charged with emotion and human connection,” Burton spoke to Vogue of the pared-back showcase the bag was a part of.
Up Close With The Black Alexander McQueen Curve Bag
Our pick in a timeless black shade will make sure you carry it in all seasons! This Alexander McQueen Curve bag has an amplified harness and edges finished off with hands. The Italian craft truly stands out in its molded stature with the double flap that opens to a commodious interior wherein your articles can be stored straight without the hassle of jumbling up. The hallmark features on the calf leather exterior — the logo and the debossed Seal Signature at the back — complement the clean lines. The Curve bag comes with an adjustable strap with dual carrying options — shoulder and crossbody.
Coming in a unique form with a minimal approach, the Curve bag is a contemporary interpretation of the ever-so-classic bucket bag. The style is also a pleasant departure from the slouchy bags that have been rampant all over the runways and fashion streets lately.
Offering a refined touch of taste and style, the brand has accorded the beau monde with creations that depict its ethos flawlessly. Beyond bags, Alexander McQueen shoes, sneakers, and accessories await you at The Luxury Closet for a seamless shopping experience with the best prices.
