Beat the seasonal transition with Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen Calf Hair Crossbody, $2345 via Neiman Marcus.

That would be the summer-to-fall transition, not the spring-to-summer transition that we’re all experiencing right now. Is all this talk about heading into fall driving anyone else crazy? Even though I’m the one doing most of it in these parts, it’s about to shove me right off the deep end, so I know that some of you have probably noticed. Fall seems like a distant dream with temperatures rising and the unofficial start of summer just passing mere days ago, but fashion waits for no woman, and Pre-Fall and Fall 2011 are everywhere.

The Alexander McQueen Calf Hair Crossbody might not ship until early September, but at the very least, it’s the sort of piece that you can wear immediately upon arrival instead of waiting for the weather to turn genuinely cold. That might be of little comfort, but summer in the fashion industry is deathly slow, and we have to talk about something. So fall it is!

Obviously, the best part of this bag is the fiery orange-red color. The color is seasonless and bold, and the gold hardware brings out some of the dept that would otherwise be lost. The haircalf texture also adds depth, and the result is a color so rich and attention-getting that I absolutely must have something in this shade in my wardrobe. I also wouldn’t be opposed to finding a nail polish in this color, and if my bank account is looking healthy when this little bag comes out, I might just add it to my closet as well. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2345.

Come to think about it, after viewing this bag I’m feeling underwhelmed by all the anticipated florals we generally get. More leaves. Thanks to 6pm Alexander Mcqueen for bringing us some thing exactly the exact same yet completely different. If it comes to Alexander McQueen accessories, the box clutch with skull grip closed is iconic. With countless renditions ranging from simple leather to overall studded, there is an option for everyone out there. I always enjoyed the studded variations, but I never saw myself carrying you. I like a little bit of spunk and rock, but I have my limits.Even though considerable studs shoot over the front of the Alexander McQueen Brittania Punk Leather Box Clutch, the perfectly toned down green leather offsets the studs in a manner that leaves the final product less harsh.Have I ever shared my love of the colour green with you? I might not constantly be attracted to it, but green is a color that works well for a lot of men and women. And I adore that paired with all the gold studs. It is both regal and punk. Right now this variant is only available on NAP worldwide, but it is going to most likely hit on the US store soon as well. Â#835 through Net-A-Porter. Spring 2011 bag sets have already begun to emerge for preorder on each one the major luxury retail sites, but some brands are quicker about getting their things posted than others. I have yet to obtain some Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 handbags up for grabs, but I managed to locate a few press images of the collection for our mutual enjoyment.McQueen’s new creative director, Sarah Burton, only revealed one bag during the line’s runway presentation, so finally getting to watch these promo shots is enlightening indeed. Together with the requisite fantastical skull clutches, the brand can be offering several pieces that look downright operational under their leather foliage. If these pieces are an indication of what’s to come in the brand’s handbags, then Alexander McQueen certainly remains in capable hands. As if spring’s runway show even left no doubt.
