Everyone always loves a new collection launch. Remember all of the craziness behind the Balmain x H&M collaboration? The latest launch may not have had the months-long build up like the former one, but it is still exciting. Alexander Wang has released his debut jewelry line. The first thought you probably had is “I thought Alexander Wang already head a jewelry line,” followed up by “Is it to late to put this on my Christmas list?” The answers to those question are “no” and “You can and always hope for a Christmas miracle.”
Alexander Wang’s jewelry line is just as cool as you would expect it. It has his signature downtown cool, model-off-duty look written all over it. This definitely isn’t the sort of jewelry that your mom and grandma wear. The collection features chunky chain. This was a detail that we saw a lot of at Alexander Wang’s Spring/Summer 2016 show at New York Fashion Week and on Taraji P. Henson‘s amazing custom gown at the 2015 Emmy Awards.
The debut collection only has four pieces, but that is a good thing. If the collection had 94 pieces like Carine Roitfield‘s new Uniqlo collaboration, the chances of us ended up broke would have quadrupled with every extra piece. The collection is made up of a necklace, cuff and two sets of earrings. The pieces are made out of brass-plated palladium, according to The Cut. They have been designed in Italy, and the prices range from $295 for the earrings to $525 for the necklace.
Take a look at the collection and start making your wishlist:
These four-link earrings would turn heads just as much as any jewel-encrusted pair of chandelier earrings. They are for pierced ears with a hinged back closure. They measure 35mm.
Locks are another element that is featured prominently in the collection. This could easily become a go-to classic piece in your wardrobe. The cuff features an AW logo engraved padlock, but it mentions nothing about coming with a key.
Here are the four-link chain earrings in a rose gold finish. Rose gold is very trendy at the moment, but you probably do not have any pieces that have this much edge.
This two-tone necklace is the most expensive piece in the line. It features the bike chain with engraved AW logo lock charm. If you’re wondering about how you get it around your neck, it has a custom link-shaped clip closure.
Decided what you want to add to your Christmas list? All of it? Note that the collection is only available in Alexander Wang stores and on the Alexander Wang website, so be sure to include that info if you’re giving the list to someone. Also remind them that you have been really good this year.
