There is really nothing special about this bracelet, which is basically a fastening buckle and a long piece of leather that allows you to loop it twice around your twist. Till you get to the end of it, which of course features the additional gold-tone brass skull (with Swarovski crystal-embellished sockets) and the etched round disc that makes a world of difference.
Priced at GBP185 online at Net-A-Porter, the Alexander McQueen Skull Charm Wrap Bracelet is a good in-between contender for those who consider the one from Hermes too pricey, while the one from Balenciaga too plain. If the one in watersnake leather is not your thing, there’s another version in plain olive leather that goes for just GBP125.
Better yet, head down to On Pedder at Ngee Ann City or Scotts Square where they’ve got a great selection of new season McQueen bracelets in different leathers and colours, alongside SLGs like card cases, tech cases (like this ocelot-print canvas iPad case) and wallets.
