Trend alert!!! Dripping chain bracelets hit the fall runway show of Nina Ricci.
I’ve been seeing a lot of elongated sleeves and oversized arms on clothing this season. Some arm lengths go way beyond the hand appearing the garment is too big, while others are cropped to a three quarter length. I guess anything goes in fashion (What else is new?). Taking it a step further, Nina Ricci adds gold chain bracelets that drape beautifully over and pass the hand for a dramatic impact.
It’s definitely a new twist on accessories and I’m sure the factories in China are mass producing them as we speak. However, I’m not buying into it. For me, it’s just way too cumbersome! I can’t stand having something in the way of my hands. I am always working, and talking with my hands, so this would just be a hinderance to my everyday way of life. (Imagine snagging everything in sight, and getting yourslef caught in doors and elevators.)
I’m not saying this trend won’t take off; it’s fun and fresh and perfect for performance artists.
But for me, I’m over having my hands in chains.
