We're more than willing to step outside our comfort zone for the sake of fashion. And while sometimes that means bandage dresses and heels that have us teetering on our toes, in the case of this Alexander McQueen accoutrement, it's more like an episode of Fear Factor. And we're game.
Baring the same knuckle slots and boxy shape as the label's other badass bags this new dreamy design has a nightmarish twist. Sitting atop the rich suede lies a purple, Swarovski-crystal cidada, wings spread, and featuring the famous McQueen skull face. Part jewelry, part cell-phone holder, and all statement maker, the dream-ticket price tag may frighten you almost as much as the creepy, winged critter itself, but rest assured there is nothing more worthy of a splurge than a high-impact accessory. As it turns out, the cicada may be nothing more than a luxe love bug.
Alexander McQueen Aubergine Suede Cicada Jewel Knucklebox Clutch, $2725, available exclusively at Alexander McQueen and Alexander McQueen stores.
