With the festive season already upon us (cue: adorable, fake snow-laden TV ads), a new addition to your arm candy brigade is in order, and there’s a particular present we’re hoping to find under the Christmas tree, screaming to be unwrapped, preferably on Christmas Eve because we’re oh so impatient!

Enter the ‘Heroine’ top handle bag from Alexander McQueen; a stunning luxe leather offering from the inimitable fashion house, updated in new colourways for A/W’12. We’ve got our sights set on the Medium Flower Laser Pony Heroine, but you can snap one up in polished leather, smooth calf leather, antique python or oxblood suede, depending on your style and wardrobe.

Every detail makes the Medium Flower Laser Pony Heroine worthy of the top spot on your ‘Presents to Self’ list, from the laser cut ivory pony skin, to the super useful expandable body, thanks to the vertical zips on either side of the bag. Big on practicality and style: what’s not to love?

But, hold it! Before your credit card automatically ejects itself from your purse and miraculously ends up at the nearest stockist’s cash desk, do bear in mind the Heroine bag’s ‘wholesome’ price tag.

Landing your handbag hungry mitts on the Medium Flower Laser Pony Heroine will set you back £2,240, and that can only mean one thing: crossing off all other ‘To Me, From Me’ gifts from your Christmas presents list (if you can’t bribe a loved one in to gifting it to you, or, you don’t have access to a bottomless present fund à la Mrs. Beckham) and doing the right thing: investing.

Alexander McQueen (God bless his genius soul) would certainly be pleased.
