Today marks my last day of interning with the PurseBlog team. This has been an incredible experience, and I’m so happy to have been able to write and share my thoughts with everyone! I thought that, as my last post, I would like to talk about one of my all-time favorite brands: Alexander McQueen. I’m a particular fan of the McQueen skull-clasp cluthes, and as soon as I saw this Alexander McQueen Floral-Embellished Skull Clasp Clutch, I knew it was the perfect bag to cover.
My love for McQueen is clear – I covered quite a bit of the brand’s work on our TalkShoes site, including the McQueen Skull-Embellished Pumps and the McQueen Leather Lace-Up Boots. Now is as good a time as any to talk about the McQueen clutch.
What is aesthetically beautiful about this clutch is the intricate floral ornaments and pearl beadwork. What attracted me to this particular clutch is that it diverges a bit from McQueen’s traditional sense of gothic luxury. It’s given a very feminine touch with the rose pink color of both the bead work and the flowers. The tangible appliques provide a delicate, almost antique sensibility, something that is unlike much of the brand’s previous work. However, we can’t forget the statement piece that makes a McQueen, well a McQueen: the iconic skull clasp. Buy yours today through Neiman Marcus for $2795. Who knows, maybe one day I will treat myself and buy my very own!
