A beach towel full of style and tradition, this exquisite piece from Alexander McQueen sports a sharp and striking design. Created by the same fashion house responsible for the stunning dress worn by Kate Middleton at her royal wedding, this eye-catching towel is perfect for the beach this summer season, or as a stately bath towel for home.

Whether you are soaking up some rays at the beach, heading to the pool, or enjoying a long bath, this towel will add an air of class and visual intrigue to your activity. The sharp design features a stark black background with 11 iconic skull motifs in a central line. Of course, the Alexander McQueen name appears as well.

The motifs on this beach towel are reminiscent of McQueen’s final show; his Fall 2010 collection was shown after his death. Many believe that the pieces in this final show symbolized the designer’s obsession with the afterlife. 

The interplay between the soft plush towel and the dark, hard skull imagery is what made McQueen such a genius. His blending of the familiar with the unknown made for unique, memorable pieces that came down the runway to international acclaim. Even for such a small piece, this towel pays homage to the late designer’s legacy. While most famous for its opulent bespoke and sometimes outrageous creations, with this striking black towel the Alexander McQueen label has delivered a piece that oozes class.
