Paying respect to the British McQueen of fashion design

Alexander McQueen was found dead in his appartment on the morning of Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010. A supposed suicide is predicted to be the cause.

To pay respects to the late Alexander McQueen, as all fashion-anybodies should do, how about talk about his handbags? Afterall, it is fashion week as well!

Like his outrageously tall and intricate stilettos and lobster claw heels and his poofier-than-thou wedding gowns, his handbags use hard geometric lines (hot pink clutch below), mixtures of leather textures, mismatched fabric patterns (like the houndstooth puzzle above) and metal.

Patent bowling bag shaped bags (above black patent "Elvie" satchel) and multi-pattern totes also seemed to tickle his handbag design fancy along with tiny palm sized clutches. That have nothing other than skulls for clasps.
He has almost a goth/punk style using a lot of black, white and skulls.
The favorite is a fairly unconventional use of metal for a handbag. Or conventional, depending on how you look at it.

This is the new fashion forward way to get in a bar fight or ward off unwanted and unruly predators!



But of course an article on McQueen can't go without what turned him on to many all Lady Gaga fans this past winter

R.I.P. Alexander McQueen, you were truely an artist and a fashion icon. May fashionistas know your name and work and designers be motivated by you for decades to come!
