Future, in all his wisdom, once rapped: “Alexander McQueen’s therapeutic”. There was of course more to the rap but that’s all that matters. And he’s right. We’re always in need of some fashion therapy and Alexander McQueen have officially opened their first store in Australia. The remedy. The store is in the chosen place of Chadstone, Melbourne, conceived by Sarah Burton in collaboration with architect Smiljan Radic. It has the McQueen store magic we’ve seen around the world, the space is curved and lined in light and dark oak and walnut lit up with Burton’s creations, most importantly the Spider Jewelled Satchel. In celebration of the new store, the handbag has been released in three colour ways – an emerald green, a midnight black and a bone white. The bag is inspired by the natural world, a real down to Mars vibe with a classic McQueen glittering jewelled spider that sits amongst three wicked coloured cushion-cut glass jewels set on black onyx crystal with antique gold or silver hardware. We’re feeling cured. Therapy at its finest.
The three bags are available now at the Alexander McQueen store located at 1341 Dandenong Rd Chadstone Shopping Centre.
