There are many things that we have come to love about Alexander McQueen and it seems we have many more yet to know. Carving a legacy best be known for glorious theatrics and precision tailoring, now come SS 21 and the house of McQueen introduces something wholehearted and breathtakingly new. Clean, stripped back and refined, Alexander McQueen presents its latest addition to the McQueen family with its release of The Curve bag, a contemporary companion to Alexander McQueen SS21 womenswear collection.
A tribute to the now late Alexander Lee McQueen, the bag embodies strong contours, elliptical in its shape and minimal in its design, paying tribute to McQueen's harness silhouette that became emblematic as one of the early design signatures from McQueen's time at the reigns of the house.
Linear and stripped back in its figuration, the bag takes its reign as the modern day bucket bag reimagined, more contemporary and a la mode. Held and bound together by its harness signature, the structure of the bag encloses with double flap closure with all its harnessed edges hand finished by the atelier. Pure, minimal and perfectly restrained, the bag comes equipped with a adjustable strap for cross body or shoulder wear finished with pristine debossed Alexander McQueen seal imprinted on the back.
Much alike to Alexander McQueen's SS21 womens ready-to-wear collection, the bag explores a world in design stripped back to its bare essence. Reminiscent of creative director Sarah Burton's film presentation for Alexander McQueen SS21 titled First Light, the bag joins its ready-to-wear contemporaries, delving into exploring new desires in a new world, one rooted in purity and restraint.
Alexander McQueen's new The Curve bag will launch with an exclusive installation at the Alexander McQueen Flagship boutique on Old Bond Street in London with the installation later rolling out to select flagship boutiques worldwide. Alexander McQueen's The Curve bag is available now for pre-order on alexandermcqueen.com.
