Men And Wrist Jewellery
Are men allowed to wear any jewellery beyond the usual watch and ring? Apparently in these fashion forward times now, guys are catching up with girls in terms of playing dressed up!
The recent Milan and Paris Spring Summer 2011 Mens Fashion Week has seen many guys embellishing their wrist with a myriad variety of beaded, woven or metal bracelets, often layered together for a statement making effect. Japanese men's magazines (they are the most updated and relevant) such as Leon and Uomo, who have always propagate masculine Italian styles, are also widely featuring this trend.
Are you game for some 'wrist action'? I spotted these 14 carat gold or silver beads wrap around bracelets from Vietnamese designer, Chan Luu, which is luxe with a bohemian touch. Chan Luu is a designer graduate from Los Angeles's Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising before starting her eponymous line of handcrafted accessories in 1996. Now based in Los Angeles, her line has won the hearts of A-list celebrity fans such as Lady Gaga, Rihana and Kate Hudson.
Chan Luu's designs are very neutral and hence has also been featured in Leon and Uomo magazines. The bracelets simply look great when worn and piled with a watch. I want one!
Prices start from approx. US$195.
