Nailed it

July 20, 2012


I like big brands, but don’t really want to wear them.  Unless they’re vintage.  I can’t really explain why.  Something about consciously trying not to follow the fashion norm, while possessing the desire to be on top of the trends.  Not picking and choosing from all that’s supposed to be cool  is more fashion-forward than blindly piling on the labels.

For Cartier, though, I might make an exception.

Have you seen the relaunch of the 1970’s “Juste un clou” bracelet?  Yes, it is just a bent nail, albeit $6000+,  but it’s definitely what I’d define as brand name meets cheeky kitsch.  And vintage at that.   Only Cartier could get away with peddling amped up versions of what’s sold at Home Depot.

Hitting the nail on the head when it comes to my fashion trends, golden household object turned bracelet might just be enough to convert this sarcastic fashionista.

Just a nail?  Yes, please!  Or rather, mais oui!
