Sometimes classy and trashy are opposite poles, and sometimes they are flip sides of the same coin. On this amazingly badass ring by Alexander McQueen, the latter is definitely the case. There’s not actually anything actually trashy about this design, but it does reference biker girl style in a pretty clear way.
The design is classic McQueen, with his signature skull motif combined with Swarovski-accented flowers and butterflies. It’s the combination of these seemingly contradictory elements that make the design so effective. It looks as though the heavy, scary looking skull has been graced with a lovely halo. I guess some people might find the look a little creepy, but it fits in well with this season’s dark, edgy aesthetic without getting too goth.
