It seems there is never a dull moment with Alexander McQueen, even now with Sarah Burton holding the reins. The designs never fail to fascinate me. I find them intriguing and I look forward to seeing what is new season after season. Of all things Alexander McQueen, however, nothing tops my list more than the Skull Clutches! They are insanely cool and it is amazing how this single design is given new life over and over again. It is no wonder I was excited to see this latest rendition. Meet the Alexander McQueen Unicorn and Skull Clutch!
What I love about this clutch is the beautiful floral embroidery. Red, purple, yellow, and green dance across this clutch in a way that is almost enchanting. Some of the flowers look like irises too. At one time, irises were my favorite flower. I am also loving the brass knuckle clasp. The usual skull is sitting front and center, with crystals adorning the eyes, mouth, and what appears to be some sort of crown. But this particular version has added something new. Two unicorns frame the skull with their horns pointing inward as if in salute. What a gorgeous piece! It is the ultimate big statement in a small package!
