Inspired by Alexander McQueen’s classic skull emblem, this delicate pTiece is constructed from supple calfskin leather that ages with grace
The hallmarks of Alexander McQueen’s vision have never been subtle. Since the British designer’s foray into the London fashion scene in 1993, the couturier’s creations were always intricate, sharp, and subversive—the perfect foil to the muted tones and robust silhouettes of the contemporary runway.
Even now with creative director Sarah Burton, the fashion house continues to push the limit into complex yet sophisticated outlines and layering with hints of romance.

One such bag that has been seen throughout this season is the Jeweled Hobo Bag, a reimagination of the shoulder bag with a faceted silhouette made out of calfskin leather panels. It also features an archetypal Alexander McQueen element, the knuckle closure in a skull motif.
Since its launch in late 2022, we’ve spotted the Jeweled Hobo Bag on the wrists or hands of our favorite celebrities. Check out how each one of them coordinated and styled their outfits with the it-bag of the season.
