Oversized, versatile and available with a long and short handle options, Alexander McQueen’s The Tall Story handbag became an overnight hit with the fashion set after it debuted on the brand’s spring summer 2020 pre-collection. The Tall Story was designed to fit everything you could possibly need for the day and more, including a laptop.
Now, for spring summer 2021, Alexander McQueen has introduced a smaller, more compact version of the much-loved bag. Aptly named the Short Story, the new design can be worn multiple ways: hand-held using the metal handles, worn over the shoulder or across the body using the leather strap, and although petite, it packs a significant style punch.
Forming part of The Story family of bags, which was named after the narrative — story-telling — approach at the heart of the house, the modern metal handles featured on the Short Story take inspiration from Alexander McQueen’s jewellery and allow the bag to be handheld comfortably due to their natural curve.
Available in a range of seasonal colours including black, khaki, taupe, bright pink, lime, black stamped croc leather, natural canvas and an all new x-ray print, the Short Story comes complete with a front zip pocket, card compartment, magnetic snap button fastening, brass hardware, suede lining and a detachable and adjustable leather strap. Each bag also features a leather tag embossed with the Alexander McQueen charm signature.
If you’re in the market for a new designer handbag, then it’s worth considering the Short Story. Not only will it easily fit your everyday essentials, elevate even the simplest of outfits, and guarantee a shower of compliments, its chic silhouette will stand the test of time, making it the kind of bag you want to invest in.
