With much of the fashion world still reeling from the loss of talented designer Alexander McQueen, there’s a lot out there taking subtle cues from his signatures. This Alexander McQueen Skull Print Canvas Shopper recalls of what may be McQueen’s most commercial success, the skull print scarf. Worn by fashion plates from Nicole Richie to the Olsen twins to Kate Moss, it was hailed for the unique mixture of dark subject matter and amazingly light chiffon.

If you just can’t stop looking at the haunting pictures of Alexander McQueen’s final collection, I’ve got a little Friday treat for you. Originally posted by the crew at Fashionista, the video shows details of not only the clothing, but also the shoes, bags and accessories that are on display at McQueen’s buyer display in Paris. As expected, the tailoring and finishing are impeccable.
After Alexander McQueen’s death, one of the ways many people reacted was shock followed by wanting to buy a piece from one of his last collections. The Skull Clutch is an iconic McQueen bag and all of the websites that previously had them in stock sold out within hours.
Saks just stocked a few new McQueen bags, one being the Alexander McQueen Stringray Print Skull Clutch.
If there is a more haunting experience in fashion than watching Alexander McQueen‘s posthumous Fall/Winter 2010 presentation to a very small group of fashion’s glitterati, I can’t imagine what it would be. Presented in an ornate salon owned by the brand’s parent company, the partial collection of 16 looks was brilliant, as we all knew it would be. It was also, in part, something totally unexpected: angelic.
For those of you who think that Alexander McQueen handbags might be a little too out there for your taste, I may have found a bag for you.
Looking at the name of the bag, I was wondering what was really meant by the word camouflage. Did it have to do with the colors, the design, some hidden meaning? It is not that McQueen camouflaged his genius or his innate ability to take design to the next level.
It would be disingenuous, at this juncture, to speculate about what McQueen’s legacy will be or what impact his all-too-soon death will have, but if there is one thing I can say for sure, it’s that the world still needs Alexander McQueen.
We are self-proclaimed Alexander McQueen fans here at PurseBlog. And this bag is no different.
The Alexander McQueen Leather Biker Satchel infuses a design that I wasn’t completely in love with to make a bag that is speaking to me. With all of the pockets and zippers from the Alexander McQueen Leather Biker Tote and the laid-back satchel style, I am loving this bag from Alexander McQueen.
This morning, I said to myself, “Self, you haven’t had an opportunity to slobber all over Alexander McQueen in a while. Make that happen.” It didn’t take much looking to find something to talk about. Behold: the Alexander McQueen Croc-Print Skull Clutch.
I’ve never quite understood why these clutches aren’t more popular with starlets on the red carpet. They’re tiny, glam, come in so many finishes, and have a ton of personality.
Now this is a unique tote. Sure, there is a lot going on, but this is something Alexander McQueen has learned to pull off without making bags look sloppy. In fact, this aspect is what I’ve come to know and love about McQueen bags. I am sure you remember the Alexander McQueen Red Faithful Glove Clutch we covered a little while back.
As much as I’m an unrepentant Alexander McQueen fangirl in almost every way imaginable, I’m still not really feeling the Alexander McQueen Biker Faithful Satchel. The more I look at it, the more I think that’s probably because it doesn’t really look anything like what we’ve come to expect from the brilliant McQueen.
In fact, it sort of looks like a mid-tier brand trying to ape the Balenciaga aesthetic, if anything.
