Designer Spotlight: Alexander McQueen + De-Manta Clutch + Classic Skull Clutch

From top to bottom: Metallic Leather Skull Box Clutch in Gold-Silver, Classic Skull Iridescent Skull Box Clutch in Blue, Metallic Leather Skull Box Clutch in Ebony-Gold, Galaxy Classic Skull Box Clutch in Green

  I love the box clutch, I love the skull motif, I love the scarves, I love McQueen.  While browsing the designer purse section at Nordstrom, a fellow ESQ and I recently fell in lust with the De-Manta Clutch.  We also tugged,  quite literally, on one of the knuckle box clutches which was tightly attached to a security tie.   In a feeble attempt at perhaps owning one of these coveted bags, my pal even suggested we go halves on one them so that we could have joint custody - but even then, we were not quite there.  Forget what I said in this post about finding more wallet friendly items.

I'll leave the real McQueen Tribute to one of my favorite bloggers, Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparklywho writes a lot more eloquently than I do.

De-Manta Clutch.
This one is on sale - less than $500 (I know, I know, what a bargain...)

What do you think of the late Alexander Mcqueen's designs? 
Do any of you own any McQueen items?

Gorgeous McQueen picks! I would love to own something but definitely not budget friendly. You might be able to do a little DIY project on the skull clutch.

I don't own any, but I wouldn't mind one of those clutches. I really like the purple one. I loved the scarves he came out with.

PS I think Jessica Chastain wore a GORGEOUS McQueen on the red carpet at the academy awards. Stunning and edgy at the same time. Also WWD posted pics from Ellie Saab RTW fall 2012 there were some amazing pieces.
