Leave it to Alexander McQueen to sex up your average, everyday tote. While you will definitely be tempted to carry this bag daily, there’s nothing average about it. Black lambskin leather knotted into see-through mesh has the desirable feel of a pair of fishnet stockings – especially over a nude lambskin underlay. A skin-on-skin combo with fleshly nude popping through is incredible sensual.
The overall effect of this top-handle tote (reaching its full potential of opulence with signature skull charms): it has the intrigue of something very intimate. Which is just what our bags are – what I carry inside them is, in fact, very personal. Especially bags of substantial size, like this one. A peep-show tote you can flaunt openly? This is naughty and nice, so there must be a catch. Yes, the price is a bit of a hazard. It’s fun to live dangerously, but at three-grand, it’s just a bit too naughty. At Bergdorf Goodman for $2,995.
Pair with: Amp up your daywear with a shoe as seductive as your satchel. Givenchy’s sandal-bootie has all the elements you want for a sexy-cool look: cork, cutouts, lots of leather, and their signature hardware. Givenchy Leather Open-Toe Bootie Sandals, $1,200.
