Alexander McQueen Demanta Leather Skull Clutch

You know what? This clutch may work very well for those of you that have a slight affinity for skulls but do not want too much. Alexander McQueen was known for infusing skull accents into his designs. Sometimes in masses, sometimes as a clasp closures, and now embossed.

The Alexander McQueen Demanta Leather Skull Clutch features skull-embossed black leather.

The body of the clutch is large, 15″W X 7½”H X 2″D. The top folds and snaps at the sides to bring the design together a bit more. I can imagine this working for someone looking to add a bit of edge to their ensemble. This clutch may be black, but it certainly does not lack spunk.

As much as I love Alexander McQueen and I want to love this clutch, it isn’t for me. With the size being so large, it seems like it might be hard to carry. Though, because it does not have a structured shape, it would be easier to hand-hold or throw under your arm and keep it snug next to your body. Buy through Saks for $625.

McQueen may be gone, but the brand’s box clutches endure

I’m so relieved that Alexander McQueen (the brand) will continue to function after the death of Alexander McQueen (the man). He was a visionary, and his legacy deserves to be continued in the wake of his passing. By all indications, the McQueen clothing and accessories that we will see in the near future owe a considerable debt to the founder’s aesthetic, just as it should be.

Skull clutches have been a McQueen accessory signature for some time, and the brand looks to continue that tradition with the Alexander McQueen Union Jack Stud Clutch. Skulls, studs and Anglophilia were all motifs which McQueen embraced, and if this bag is any indication, they’re not going anywhere in the brand’s forthcoming work.
