Bonnie Tyler may have famously wailed that she needed a hero, but had she recorded the song today, we suspect it might have been a Heroine that she was hankering for - an Alexander McQueen Heroine bag, that is.
For autumn/winter 2012, the house of McQueen is making a play for It-bag notoriety with the feminine and sculptural design of the Heroine, which comes in various leathers and sizes. It's even got its own campaign, shot by Dan Tobin, marking the first time McQueen has afforded an accessory such an honour - and boy, is this lady worth it.
Another thing the Heroine does have, however, is a cool four-figure price tag, but hey, we can dream. The pre-autumn/winter 2012 styles have just landed in store and online: go drool.
