Alexander McQueen just announced its newest silhouette, paying tribute to the brand’s signature McQueen knuckle hardware.
Dubbed ‘The Slash Bag,’ the new offering emphasizes the now-iconic knuckle design alongside the House’s classic skull motif, drawing inspiration from knuckledusters and the gritty streets of London. Enveloped in antique silver and gold metal, the bag’s embellishment represents a sense of urban toughness juxtaposed with the beauty of jewelry.
Made up of a supple red lambskin leather body, the bag features cut-out details inspired by the art of tailoring and boasts a press stud closure. Complete with an antique silver-finished chain strap, the bag’s handle is designed with Swarovski-encrusted rings.
To celebrate the launch of the bag, Alexander McQueen tapped model Kaia Gerber for an all-new film that blurs the lines between humanity and technology. Directed by Glen Luchford, the campaign offers an eerie look at a futuristic universe, one where Gerber comes face to face with a harsh reality.
