Alexander McQueen Cathedral Skull Box Clutch, $2960 via Net-a-Porter

Longtime PurseBlog readers already know how I feel about Alexander McQueen‘s skull clutches. They’re easily my favorite line of evening bags ever, and the legacy of McQueen as a brand always manages to shine through in their design, even though a box clutch is an exceptionally tiny canvas. If I had unlimited income, I’d collect these bags, and I can’t say that about any other brand on the market right now.

Without question, the Alexander McQueen Cathedral Skull Box Clutch would be the crown jewel of that collection. If I were to carry it, the bag would serve as a tiny gilded cage for my belongings, but let’s face it – this is the kind of bag that I’d want to display instead of use.

I’ve has this bag in one of my browser tabs since it first appeared on Net-a-Porter on Friday, and I keep returning to stare at it, particularly with the site’s ultrazoom feature. The details of the clutch are absolutely exquisite, and they live up to the “cathedral” name – this is like a tiny purse church, and I’m here to worship. The only damper on my enthusiasm is that the bag is made of silver-toned brass instead of sterling silver, which we’ve seen Bottega Veneta use in the occasional box clutch. Even with that in mind, this little evening bag is pretty close to perfection Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2960.

The picture hasn’t even finished downloading yet, and I already went “WOW”. This bag is just… “stunning”, “gorgeous”, “beautiful” don’t quite cut it… It’s just… otherworldly. This is what handbag dreams are made of. *swooooooon*

I love AMQ clutches and this one is amazing! I unfortunately don’t have anywhere to go to, that would warrant buying a $3000 clutch for.
