Trend Alert: Slaves to Fashion

Now, we’ve all accidentally left our cute clutches on the bar, or committed the cardinal girlfriend sin of asking those with pockets to tote our gear. But is being chained to a handbag really fitting fashion punishment? This style smackdown was served up by Gucci’s Frida Giannini at the line’s Fall-Winter 06 debut in Milan. Giannini’s caught a lot of flack since staging a coup to become the fashion house’s sole Creative Director earlier this year, and I can’t help but think these glam-rocker-meets-dominatrix contraptions are her way of declaring martial law on the fashion world. Sure, you won’t have to worry about losing your house key, credit card, and stick of gum (about all that will fit in Gucci’s golden girls), but is peace of mind worth carting around a 14-karat ball and chain? No word yet on how much Gucci’s version will cost (I recommend starting a savings account now), but if you can’t wait to cuff one on, you can score a hands-free handbag from Cuffz by Linz for $198. The Barfly style comes in lots of glittery, glam colors and textures, and the handcuff attachment ensures nobody will try to steal your stuff. And hopefully you won’t lose it, no matter how many martinis you’ve consumed.
