I've always liked edgy fashion designer Alexander McQueen's Skull clasp clutches, but he's taken them a step further with these amazing weapon-cum-handbags, the Knuckle Duster Clutch. Hard-sided oval clutch purses in various colors, patterns and materials are clasped together by a knuckle duster of bejeweled skulls. It's like wearing amazing jewelry plus a handbag, all in one. In hip teen lingo, it's 'siiick'. And that's a good thing.
