May the earth open up, cave in and take me down with it for not updating this blog appropriately and reviewing the expansion of this line when it reared its skull earlier. Forgive me lord McQueen, for I have sined…

I Love, love, LOVED this sleek and unique line of clutch purses so very much on the first run and I never got over it. These aren’t for everyone, so imagine my surprise in discovering McQueen is continuing to expand the line.  This time around he is experimenting with bright colors and patterns, materials range from silks with intricate brass overlays beading and exotic skins, and even changed up the skull closure using different colored swarovski crystals for teeth and eyes and some even have a skull “knuckle ring” type opening. While I adore the simplicity of the originals in patent leather, I am thrilled he has expanded so elegantly while still utilizing an unexpected and unadulterated creative sort of fashion rebellion in which was so much a part of his style reputation early on. Much like the coveted Dior samourai handbags, these clutches are truly a work of art ($1,300.00-$3,000.00, depending on style).
