It's been quiet on the Alexander McQueen bag front where nothing's really caught my eye since the Heroine and even then I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. Right before the end of last year, the brand launched the Legend and the shape is reminiscent of the Celine Trapeze to my dismay. (If you read my comment on the Heroine, then you'll understand why.) It's a nice bag and all but I miss the punk chic that has been a trademark of the brand for years. Don't get me wrong, they are still doing awesome collections and I still lust after their older iconic bags which get updated every season, it just seems that the brand has taken a direction towards a more grown up aesthetic, for lack of a better description.
