Art or Accessory: The Alexander McQueen Clutch
The Iris Plexiglass clutch is a beautiful invocation of McQueen's gothic, graceful style. Evocative of crystal Lalique decorate vessels, this creation features a Swarovski crystal embellished skull in place of the stamen of the Iris adorning the clasp. I have to wonder of the symbolic meaning behind replacing the reproductive portion of the flower with the deathly symbol of a human skull... Life. Death. Beauty. Whether or not you are intrigued to explore the deeper meaning, you'll be mesmerized by the overall beauty of this piece. A collector's piece for $2,295.
Intricate detail are the hallmark of the Engraved Leaf and Thorn Box Clutch. Beautifully crafted goldtone metal features sculptured leaf motif with a thorny vine. I can't place the species but I'm reminded of privet hedges with their controlled manicured sculptures. The thorny vine is almost an out of control element that is topped off with the McQueen skull and amber Swarovski crystals for eyes. Beauty, danger and intricate design all come together for a beautifully crafted piece. Additionally, this clutch features a brown leather pouch to hold your bits and bobs. A truly amazing piece for your collection. $3,295.
You decide. Art? Accessory? Both? The proud owner of these designs will not want to tuck them away in a dust bag on a closet shelf. They require presentation. I suggest a glass display case prominently displayed in your home for your friends to admire and desire. Check them out at: Alexander McQueen Boutique at NetaPorter!
