ALEXANDER McQUEEN Black Leather ‘Skull Wallet On Chain’ –  SOLD

Everything about this WOC is in keeping the most elite craftsmanship that we expect from Italian luxury goods, but this piece is decidedly McQueen with its silver and crystal-encrusted skull clasp.  The pebbled leather is expertly stitched and opens in an accordion style for thoughtful compartmentalization, while the silver skull glitters mischievously, giving edge to an otherwise understated clutch.  A silver chain can be worn for a hands-free option, or tucked inside (or removed completely) to use as a clutch or wallet.  The skull clasp flips forward to allow the front flap to lift and reveal a single front open pocket, two divided interior slots, with a zipper pocket down the middle, and 6 card slots along the back side of the piece.   Size 8″ [W] x 4″ [H] x 1″ [D] with a shoulder drop of 20 inches.  In wonderful condition.  Originally retailed $995, our price is $499.
