They might be pop­u­larly as­so­ci­ated with streetwear and mu­si­cians with names like 2 Chainz, but graphic styles of bi­joux in­spired by me­chan­i­cal parts were in fact first pop­u­larised in the ’60s as a re­sponse to the era’s ob­ses­sion with all things fu­tur­is­tic. Flash for­ward to Pre-Fall, and they take on a dif­fer­ent ro­man­tic note. At Her­mes (this page), the clasp on its iconic Kelly bag in­spires an elon­gated pair of yel­low gold drop ear­rings and match­ing lar­iat neck­lace. Tif­fany & Co. up­dates its chain-and-ball Hard­wear col­lec­tion in el­e­gant 18K white gold and di­a­monds. And at Dior (op­po­site), mid-sized chain chok­ers get a girlie touch with star-shaped lock­ets. Fun yet fem­i­nine and ev­ery­day-friendly – dayumm, this is fine.
