I love exceptional style and have always believed to possess it, is in itself, an art form. Fashion on the other hand, as Coco herself so famously said, fades. That it fades might not be fast enough for a new jewelry collection I spotted recently that actually left me speechless. I’m all for infusing the ingenious into the tried and true but designer Christopher Kane’s reinterpretation of zips-ties goes beyond the absurd and borders on misogynistic. Kane has repurposed that impossibly sturdy piece of plastic – that thing you can never get off of electrical cords and that conjures up images of NBC’S Dateline and its countless murder mysteries – into a luxury jewelry line that not only includes zip-tie necklaces, but bracelets and hair-ties.
Am I the only one who doesn’t get this?
How do you feel about this trend?
Your spot on… This is absolutely ridiculous.. Not the least to say dangerous and derogatory.
Art, it’s certainly not. It is just someone’s version, and a demented one at that… Sorry, not a fan of the zip tie
unless I’m bundling cables for my sound system.
Oh no…. I am all for experimenting too and I appreciate risks, but this is too much.
Straight A Style
lol yea a big thumbs down to the zip tie thing.
Interesting. Fashion is all about making a statement & it’s definitely got people thinking. It reminds me of paper clip necklaces I used to make as a kid. :]

Yikes! No thank you…
Certainly not my style!
Haha – this is one look I will be skipping! Wow…
I don’t know whether to laugh or be appalled! This is probably one of the most bizarre fashion concepts I’ve ever seen. I feel it’s aggressive & misogynistic although ridiculous at the same time – No?
Still it could take off what do I know? Hahahaha
