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.

    OMG – This looks like a ripoff of treesje’s skull emobossed bags!

    Anything by Alexander McQueen interests me. Easy to carry clutch with an instantly recognisable skull-emblem.

    I love it! I could use this as a cosmetic bag and as a clutch!

    Did you mean “Alexander McQueen was known for infusing skull accents into his designs.”?

    I love it. It’s very interesting and a conversation piece. My only issue is the fold down corners.

    I am way over my pirate phase.

    I have the Treesje Mortale clutch from last year and I like it a lot better than this one but I adore most of McQ’s designs!!

    I own the satin Snake DeManta Clutch and is a gorgeous piece. It holds quite a large amount and is easy to carry, whether you prefer to squeeze it or tuck it under your arm. It is well crafted and the zips glide easily enough. I love this black version, will definitely add that to my Fall buying!

    It’s okay, but when I look at it I see a stingray? Maybe it’s just me.

  • Sofia Nolan

    Alexander McQueen, who else? But it`s pretty difficult to wear this.

  • Irma Tso

    Not my taste but cute.

  • NK

    I don’t like it personally, but I can’t say anything bad about McQueen or i’ll go to hell

    What happens over at the McQueen design room now? I know that the great man would have used a team of creative people as he wasn’t the only one bringing ideas to the table, but were these bags on the drawing board? Who runs the look of the fashion house now? Is the McQueen label destined to continually revamp skulls as no one has the insight or daring that Alexander McQueen had?

    I have never been able to jump on the skull wagon. I think because they scare me when I look at them.

    • sarah

      I like the clutch

  • April

    Not sophisticated at all. It looks a bit silly.

  • adrienne z

    not bad!

    Just purchased myself some AMAZING Alexander McQeen boots that are crying out for this handbag! Anyone know where I can pick one up in the UK?
