2nd Window: Presents from Alexander McQueen


My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that? Bob Hope
The Goldenes Quartier’s advent calendar: new gift ideas every day. Today: Alexander McQueen.

A present doesn’t have to be huge to spread great joy: the small leather box clutch with a skull clasp is guaranteed to set rebellious daughters’ pulses racing. They can wear it to their school prom or even the Vienna Opera Ball (Opernball). After all, skulls and McQueen go together like rebellion and adolescence. Daughters are not the only ones who would be over the moon to find something by Alexander McQueen under the Christmas tree – it’s the perfect way to make sure that yours is no run-of-the-mill present. When they tear open their parcel, surprise your friend or relation with scarves and bangles bearing the signature skulls or a skeleton key ring, cufflinks, wallet and belt.
