Today’s “let it bling over me” – Van Cleef & Arpels and Earnest Sewn created a limited edition jeans. Limited as in 10 pairs of each jean in “Zazo” style, high-rise, slim straight leg fit with Alhambra jewelry design to be auctioned at Christie’s.
The first style, in dark indigo with a white mother-of-pearl and yellow gold Alhambra button is about $9.700. The second style, in soft light grey with black onyx and white gold Alhambra motifs costs about $11.300.
If wearing bling around your jean isn’t your thing, then know that you can also wear the Van Cleef & Arpels as a necklace or around your wrist as a bracelet.
I’m declaring myself against this trend (if ever it settles to be one). I can only imagine my kids joyfully tearing off my precious Van Cleef just to innocently play with mum’s new bling and it makes me shiver!
I see nothing practical in wearing that precious chain around my jean and since that unhappy style of showing off your belly is everything but glam, I don’t recommend it either. So what use in wearing a painfully expensive chain if none can see it? Plus, even if I do enjoy listening to Ministry (especially “Bad Blood”) from time to time, my hard-rock days are a bit behind me.
What do you think? It’s the promise of a trend? Or just one sparkle in the ocean of useless creations?
