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. What gives?

Alexander McQueen Croc Print Clutch

I, for one, thing that this little darling would make a perfect clutch for awards season. I’m not usually a fan of stamped croc, but on a bag this small and rigid, it manages to not look cheap or plastic. In fact, the finish is pleasantly distressed without looking sloppy, similar to if the entire bag had been made out of slightly worn silver.

Come to think of it, wouldn’t that be a great bag? An Alexander McQueen skull clutch made entirely or metal, but fashioned to look like it might be leather. I don’t doubt that he may try it in the future at some point. Buy through Browns UK for £695.

    not very fond of the skull clasp … and i guess thats why they are not very popular … instead people opt for BV knots – smar shape, tons of colors/finish … very stylish and elegant

    I agree it doesn’t look cheap but I guess I’ll never understand the appeal of skulls on bags or clothing. On teenagers into the gothic scene I can understand but grown adults? I just do not get the appeal. Agree that the BV knots and smiliar are much more stylish and elegant.

    Not bad but not as nice as other variations

    On the right occasion this bag would be a show stopper…but it’s not for every one and certainly not mainstream. If we’re talking about buying a very multi-purpose clutch, this wouldn’t be it…but for a Halloween party, sign me up!

    I like it. It’s edgier than your average clutch, but elegant enough to work it at a fancy event.

    I guess it’s just me but when I look at it I want to polish it! A touch of OCD I guess! :-)

    I am not a fan of croco embossing, but I love the skull. I have been married for thirteen years and have two children. I am a total football mom and would wear a skull on anything in a minute.

    Damn….. I officially worship McQueen!!!!!

    I love McQueen, but I despise skulls, they are wicked creepy.

    Love McQ and love the clutch. I think the clutch is not a red carpet staple because McQ is generally not a red carpet staple. I mean how often do u hear hollywood stars saying they are wearing McQ? Not often. Its a shame really. Maybe its because he is a quirky Brit or maybe he just doesnt play the red carpet schmooze the celebs publicity game.

    I love the skull, McQueen makes such beautiful skull pieces that add just the right touch of bad ass to an outfit. As another 30 something adult female, I have to admit… a little skull goes a long way.

    Love it! Pretty and edgy. The skull is a different touch.

  • Kendra

    I still love this. (fb)

    it’s a fantastic clutch. I hope that they continue to make this clutch to continue mcqueen’s legacy (fb)

    Loving the finish (distressed not dirty ;) ), but I just can’t get on with the skull……if I was going to drop this much on a clutch, think it would have to be for a BV knot rather than the skull. Shame, because it really is a lovely shape and finish (couldn’t he do a knot with a skull print on the lining or some sort of embossment?) (fb)
