Good things really do come in small packages, and the Alexander McQueen Mini Heroine handbag is here to prove it. The pint-size purse is the miniature version of the designer’s signature Heroine medium bag, which launched last fall.
But don’t let its diminutive size fool you—the Mini is still a stylish superhero with the same impeccable construction and luxe detailing of its bigger sister, including the suede lining and the hand stitching. There’s also an added removable and adjustable cross-body leather strap, which trendsetting celebs from Jessica Alba to Zoe Saldana have been quick to embrace.
In early June, we first saw the bag wrapped across supermom Jessica. She had a full load with a carryall tote on one arm and her adorable daughter on the other, with the hands-free chic black Mini Heroine saving the day—and dressing up her off-duty Los Angeles style.
Also taking the elegant black bag for a casual spin, Sienna Miller shouldered the Mini Heroine whilst rocking a full-on boho festival look at Glastonbury several weeks ago.
Ever flaunting her fashion prowess, Zoe just sported the McQueen miniature recently at the Barclaycard Unwind VIP lounge at the British Summer Time Hyde Park concert series in London, where the cross-body bag added some champion flair to her white tank and black jeans. The ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ star was actually the first to be spotted carrying the original Heroine bag last year.
In addition to the classic black version that we’ve seen, the Mini Heroine is available in a range of autumnal hues, emulating the colour palette of Alexander McQueen’s ready-to-wear collection.
