Alexander McQueen's Luxe Men's Wallet
Bad boy British designer Alexander McQueen has come out with one of the most exclusive men's accessories he's ever produced, an exotic ostrich leather wallet with an embossed skull. Priced at about $500, the piece is finished in genuine brown ostrich skin with protective metal edging and a black leather interior. Inside are four credit card slots, a coin compartment and two banknote pockets. Ostrich leather is highly prized for its soft finish and recognizable pattern of quill sockets. McQueen, who often uses skulls in his designs, also offers the motif on shirts, sweaters, scarves, cufflinks, belts and rings, a macabre trend which New York magazine notes is on the rise.
