Alexander Mcqueen Padlock Tote (Small) in Black with Gold Hardware

Hi Everyone!
Today I am not going to talk about cosmetics or skincare, but share a handbag that i purchased and loving at the moment. I recently purchased my first Alexander Mcqueen handbag at Brown Thomas.
Here's some pictures of the handbag:

I took the keys off the bag since i dont like the keys hanging on my bag and it was hard to put it back on so i didnt :P

On the Brown Thomas website it says:
"The Padlock Tote Small from Alexander McQueen will add a hit of edge to your handbag collection. Instantly recognisable as a McQueen piece with its padlock in the shape of the brand's hallmark skull, the bag has been created from a black textured leather. Versatile styling options are made possible with its top handles and detachable strap, while the generously sized interior with its array of small pockets make keeping things organised easy. A covetable focal point for casual and on-duty looks alike."

"Textured leather, two top handles, detachable adjustable strap, gold-toned hardware, skull padlock detail, two way zip fastening.
Interior: textile lining, zip pocket two slip pockets.
Dimensions: H 21 x W 30 x D 17cm. Handle drop: 15cm. Strap drop: 55cm."
This handbag has become a permanent piece so it can be bought anytime in your local luxury department store.

What i love:
Firstly, the leather are super soft, which i love. Even though its a small size bag but it can fit alot of stuff in it, which is a plus! This could be due to the fact that the bag is shaped in a square shape.
Secondly, it comes with a lock and a key, the lock its in the shape of a skull. They come in silver or gold hardware and i chose the gold as i personally thinks that gold goes well with black than silver.
Thirdly, the zip is quite uniquely made, as the starting place to unzip the bag is at the center of the bag and not at the side which makes it easy to zip and unzip the bag. But also, it makes it easier for thefts to unzip the bag and steal things.
Last but not least, i like the length of the strap which can be used as crossbody or shoulder bag.
Now onto what i dont like:
Firstly, the price, its a whopping price of 965e, i dont think the bag is worthy for the big price tag.
Secondly, the leather is too soft that if i carry heavy things in it, the sides of the bag will stretch which causes the bag to lose its shape.
Thirdly, the bag isn't a true black, it looks more like a dark dark grey to me, not sure is it just the one i bought or its like that for all of the small tote bags of this range from Alexander Mcqueen.

Fourthly, the lock is quite heavy which is pulling the front of the bag down, but this can be solved very easily by putting it on when i need to use the bag. When the bag is not in use, the lock will be taken off.
Last but not least, the bag itself is quite heavy so i tend to have aching shoulders after using it since i love carrying a lot of things with me when i go out, which makes it extra heavy.
Overall, i do love this bag, but just wished that that bag wasn't as heavy as it is now and the leather hasn't stretch. Would i repurchase this bag, probably not but will definitely purchase another Alexander Mcqueen bags as their products are totally my-style for everyday fashion!

Hope everyone likes it and enjoys it.

Have a nice day everyone
