Alexander McQueen is a master at the mythology of the creative craft. His attention to detail is that of a surgeon. His daring designs and fantastic fit bring deep and hidden desires to life in his original and unique masterpieces. There is something dark, beautiful, and inexplicable about the mysterious magnetism of an Alexander McQueen creation.
Alexander McQueen was born in London on March 17, 1969 as the youngest of six children. He left school at the age of 16 and was immediately offered an apprenticeship in fashion, and continued working at various locations until 1994 when he returned to London and completed a Masters degree in Fashion Design. Since the time of his graduation, Alexander McQueen has become one of the most famous and respected international fashion designers in the world. His amazing collections include Alexander McQueen footwear, handbags, ties, sunglasses, belts, scarves, wallets, keychains, jewelry and both Alexander McQueen and McQ men's and women's clothing.
The Alexander McQueen clothing, handbag, footwear, jewelry and accessory collections are known for both the emotional power and raw energy of his shows, as well as the romantic but determinedly contemporary nature of his designs. Integral to the Alexander McQueen culture is the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, and fluidity and severity. An openly emotional and even passionate viewpoint is realized through his footwear, clothing, handbags, scarves, and accessory collections. The Alexander McQueen collections project a profound respect for the arts and crafts tradition.
All Alexander McQueen collections combine an in-depth working knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, the fine workmanship of the French Haute Couture atelier and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing.
Sarah Burton reigns as creative director for Alexander McQueen. She will continue to produce works inspired by the legacy and dreams of Alexander McQueen.
Alexander McQueen Padlock Zip Around
I love this bag! It is a true classic! It fits great on your shoulder and holds a ton of stuff, yet it is not huge. I saw a woman with a Hermes Victoria bag and knew that I could not afford the huge price tag. As soon as I saw this, I knew it was very similar and a heck of a lot cheaper - without substituting quality. I could not be happier with this stunning bag. Thanks, Zappos, for your quick mailing - you are always awesome!

The ALEXANDER McQUEEN PADLOCK ZIP AROUND is really gorgeous in person and the color "Black F13" is black leather with silver tone zipper, hardware, logo and skull padlock that's shown in the pictures. I contacted Zappos customer service before purchase to verify that it is in fact black & silver (description just has the gold-tone hardware listed) which it is because I couldn't find it in that color combo anywhere else. Unfortunately I had to send the bag back because it is much too big for practical everyday use. It was just a tad smaller than an overnight bag, and it wouldn't have been much of a problem if the depth wasn't 7" because that really made it somewhat bulky, especially when on shoulder. The bottom base of the bag has the 7" depth, so even if you don't fill it up the bag's shape will still remain wide, but the top part is more malleable and will keep a slimmer profile. I'm 5' 9" and a guy, and I still felt that it was too big for just an everyday carry-all. I think it would be great for office/tote/shopping type of events but I was looking for something to use daily. The straps were the right size, perhaps slightly more than 8" drop since they're thin, and fit comfortably on shoulder (the 2" length in description is obviously wrong). Hardware is kept to a minimum on this bag, keeping it relatively light-weight for its size, even with the skull padlock attached, which is a working lock (2 keys are given which are under the key fob strap -- removable -- shown on the handle in the pics). Gusseted sides keep the main compartment's contents from spilling out when the bag's zippers are opened all the way, and the main space is roomy featuring two slip pockets and 1 back wall zipper pocket. One issue that comes to mind is the zipper closure on the PADLOCK ZIP AROUND: it's not two continuous zippers like on most bags that sport two zippers on one track, which can be pulled left to right and back; these twin zippers are two separate zippers on two separate tracks. The beginning (or ending) of each zipper track is in the middle of the bag, so you must zip/unzip both zippers to open and close it. This might be cumbersome, but perhaps the length of the bag is such that you might only have to open the one side to get into it, so it wouldn't be too much of a hassle, but I'm not sure since I'm not keeping it. Another slight peeve would be the lack of "feet" on the bottom of the bag to protect it from the floor. Although this is probably more of a psychological safe-guard than actually protecting the bottom surface of most bags (unless there's rows and rows of studs like in Alexander Wang's Rocki & Rocco), it still would have been nice for the ALEXANDER McQUEEN PADLOCK ZIP AROUND to sport some feet since this bag is more than likely going to be on the floor or chair in a restaurant/bar because the size would make it appear too crowded or odd (though not impossible) to keep on your lap, placed on the table, or hanging on the back of your chair -- unless you have a purse hanger to hang it under the table. It pains me to have to send it back! A smaller version of this bag is coming out in Jan '14, but so far I've only seen the black and gold tone hardware color scheme. If it comes in black and silver I'm definitely going to buy that one! Zappos service is still A+++ and whenever I'm in the market for shoes or bags, I come here first. For the many years that I've bought from Zappos, I've always experienced STELLAR service.
