Alexander McQueen Ripper Clutch

Now this is a clutch! I was instantly drawn to the Alexander McQueen Ripper Clutch, and can you blame me? The design, materials and size make the 'Ripper' the perfect day to evening bag. Measuring 15 x 8.5 x 2.5, this oversize clutch with its framed top, brushed silver hardware and quilted black leather exterior is well thought out and impeccably executed. The turnlock closure and leather-covered rivets give the 'Ripper' a vintage vibe, and, frankly, I'm a bit surprised McQueen went with covered rivets instead of the more trendy metallic studs. Don't get me wrong, ladies, I'm ecstatic they decided on using the covered rivets. It lends the design an elegance that''' appeal to a broader range of styles. The large size will accommodate all your daily essentials and keep you going straight from work to dinner. Obviously, the oversize clutch is not an ideal choice for a formal evening out, but it can fit in well in almost any other situation. Now for the price. Even though the Ripper Clutch is an unexpectedly versatile bag, I just can't accept its $2780 price tag. With that said, if you can appreciate the 'Ripper's' design and the guaranteed mileage you're sure to get from it, then I'd say go for it because it's that fabulous a bag.
