I can’t count the hours I have lost obsessing over things, whether it’s a J.W.Anderson sweater or a Prada Baltic Blue tote, my train of thought chugs away to create dream outfits while my body waits patiently on the platform for its return to reality.
When I first discovered the SS11 Givenchy collection with its gothic tones, battling aesthetic between purity and carnality and luxurious fabrications of leather and lace, I immediately feel in lust. What really caught my attention though was the vertebrate jewellry, taking my obsession to a whole new level.
Even though it’s been 4 years since I first laid eyes on that necklace, my obsession has never waned. After gathering dust for the last year due to the necklace snapping in half, I decided to embrace the motto “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” or in my case a bracelet. Not being one to give up an obsession easily, I turned half the spine like necklace into a one off bracelet that not only does no one else have, but into something far more easy to wear.
I do love it when an obsession bares fruit.
