It might not be the answer you thought but hey this isn’t a poor choice either. Alexander McQueen’s Four-Ring bag is that perfect go-between if you’re hoping to stylise without over-stacking your fingers with bling. Already a familiar feature in the hardware-strong family of carriers under the McQueen banner, this bag is a new clean take on those Jewelled Satchels that have become notorious for its fancy knuckle duster-like handle (see the pictures above if you’re still new to this swag). And by that we mean those power-packed metal handles that are adorned with a skull motif and large Swarovski crystals which have now been swapped out. Debuting in its spring-summer 2022 pre-collection are pared-down versions of which the handle hardware now looks like a solid brass knuckle duster rather than a souped-up version that Jack Sparrow would approve of. To further lighten the load, McQueen has replaced the chain strap with a smooth calfskin leather version that allows for a comfier carry on the shoulder or across the body. And yes, no one’s gonna pick a fight if you have this in your arsenal – they you’re ready to hit back.
