Alexander McQueen Union Jack Box Clutch

In the immortal words of Carrie Bradshaw: “Hello, lover.”

I’m a complete sucker for the Alexander McQueen skull clutches. After years of handbag loving, it’s impossible to not find a line of little evening bags that find yourself drawn to over and over again. For Megs, it’s the Bottega Veneta Knot Clutches; for me, it’s McQueen’s macabre and lovely punk rock skulls.

Anglo references have always been a McQueen staple, and this isn’t the first Union Jack we’ve seen from him, but it might be the best. The red and black patent motif perfectly mixes the traditional flag with the brand’s goth-glam aesthetic and creates something distinctive – anyone else think that a industrially remixed British flag would be a really appropriate brand logo for the McQueen nation? I’d renounce my US citizenship and move there any day. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1650.

    too hardcore for my taste. i’d look ridiculous carrying or wearing anything with a skull motif. it would look great on someone else could do it justice though.

    after weeks of alexander mcqueen skull clutch posts i must admit that mcqueen is probably my favorite designer of the moment. i love everything mcqueen makes but these skull clutches have definitely sealed the deal. this union jack box clutch is the icing on the cake, and im pretty sure this might be my early christmas present to myself….tehehehehehe :)

    I think its good for Halloween partys or glamorous goths but its a little too much for my taste, its kinda hard

    i usually love his skull clutch, this one i think it’s a tad overboard! (and I usually like hardcore but something is off here)

    I love old Alex, I love these clutches, and I love gothica….however, being London Irish I could never condone the carrying of the Jack in blue, white and red….but I think it is permissable, and highly desirbale, in this delightfully dark colourway….

    I think this is a nice clutch for a more mature and sophisticated dark-themed party. (ipad)
