In the Spring / Summer of 2010, Alexander McQueen introduced the DE MANTA, a large clutch that takes its name and design from the majestic Manta Ray. The collection, entitled Plato's Atlantis, was Lee Alexander McQueen's last complete collection before his untimely death. I proudly own a De Manta from that season. The story of its acquisition was a bit... problematic to say the least. It includes a too long waiting list, friends employing fake accents, and a plan based on persistence. Read about my first De Manta HERE.
The models of the Spring / Summer 2014 runway show all wore metal helmets with garments that were a mixture of tribal elements and celtic kilts over pants. The overall theme of the collection was colorful and bold and included lots of jewelry. I was able to secure this bag with much less drama than the first one ( they transferred it in from the Las Vegas store) and was able to add an amazing piece to my collection.
