I almost fell off my bed when I saw the golden 3D leaves knuckle box clutch yesterday on GirlNextDoor‘s Tumblr page (my new addiction, as if I need another internet habit). Of course I emailed McQueen’s headquarters in London immediately to get the skinny on this ridiculous clutch and found out it also comes in black (drooling as I write this)! You probably know by now that I’m a crazed McQueen fan (no one else could convince me that skulls are not scary, but really sexy) and once swore that nothing will get between me and my McQueen.
Thankfully, the economy has rebounded and I no longer have to starve for my McQueen cravings– top of my list is the ethereal 3D leaves clutch for spring. This work of art combines an earth-motherly spirit with beautiful leather craftsmanship (are you crying yet?) and metalwork. The exquisite leaves and flowers grow over the bag, as if it’s been re-claimed by nature. An homage to the late great Lee McQueen? I’d like to think so.
The beauty of this clutch is at once poignant and disturbing, just how I like my McQueen.
Alexander McQueen 3D leaves knuckle box clutch, $1,995, available this spring at Alexander McQueen.com and boutiques worldwide.
