The kingdom of Alexander Wang has hosted many kinds of collection, including Objects – which consists of, well, objects. From a door sign saying ‘Please Disturb’ to a studded coaster set, whiskey glasses and stones, neck pillows, as well as a range of other items including ashtray and lighter case. However, there is no such thing as jewelries. Yes none, until now.
The Alexander Wang jewelry is indeed the natural extension of the tough, yet chic hardware treatments used frequently as details in his collection for years, whether on the Rocky bag group or the ready-to-wear. What the designer introduced through his spring runway is a small, three-piece collection of chunky bike chain earrings and a necklace with a lock, along with a lock cuff, which has been developed into pre-fall to include pill-inspired pieces. Produced in Italy, the chain pieces are brass-plated in palladium and the locks are brass-plated in 24-karat gold. Prices start at $295 for earrings and go up to $525 for the double lock necklace.
