Trend Alert: Handcuff Couture
July 25, 2006
Weâ€™ve reported on the skull style that has stubbornly stuck around gaining strength. Now handcuffs are making their way into fashion (and we donâ€™t mean with just the bondage set). Unlike the kind Naomi Campbell has been sporting lately, these little metallic cuffs are all over handbags, wallets and jewelry. Hollywood starlets have been spotted clutching the cuffed handbags of designer Linz Shelton’s line: Cuffz by Linz. The line goes from an understated shoulder bag that has a cuff closure on its flap to a dramatic metallic clutch that has a cuff dangling from it. Jessica Elliot also does a take on the style with jewelry that includes a handcuff choker thatâ€™s kind of like Tiffanyâ€™s for rocker girls. Emitations has a bad-girl-with-a-heart ‘cuff love’ necklace.
