Alexander McQueen Demanta Leather Skull Clutch
When I first heard news of Alexander McQueen's passing, I thought to myself, what items from his collection should I buy in order to keep his ingenious legacy close to me. Skulls is synonymous with his design and hence unsurprisingly, the skull print silk scarves were the first to fly off the retail shelves upon news of his passing. I am not a scarf person, having amassed quite a few and still have not let them see the daylights under Singapore's hot sun, so I reckon I will hunt for something else.
Finally, after much patience, I found a piece of Alexander Mcqueen worthy of safekeeping in my ever expanding accessories collection. This Alexander McQueen De-Manta Leather Skull Clutch is one of the most uniquely shaped clutches to be created. Unconventional and first seen on the runway of Mcqueen's highly talk-about Spring Summer 2010, featuring lots of reptilian prints. The interesting clutch design manifested as a multi-coloured python skin version that matched seamlessly with those shocking armadillo heels.
For next Fall 2010 season, the clutch returns in a full black leather with embossed skull motif, very Mcqueen but more biker chic than exotic! Most appropriate to be my Mcqueen trophy piece.... great for match up on party gear or fashion extravaganza. At US$625, it's also humanly affordable. Now I just need to keep a look out for the clutch at On Pedder or Club 21!
