to me givenchy's fall 08 layered chains look is a modern classic. instantly one of my favorite runway collections. here is maria carla in the full on runway version and also a woman i took a picture of for candid cool in a layered chain look, albeit a more subdued version.

i had been layering a gold and silver chain together a year prior, but givenchy got me thinking about wearing my other chains with it all at once. here a mix of vintage, alex + chloe, and kenneth jay lane.


“A good statement necklace is your ultimate ‘quick change’ item.
If you need an outfit to go from conservative to avant-garde in sixty seconds flat,
a statement necklace and a good pair of stilettos are all you need.” -nina garcia's the one hundred

  3. all the chains remind me of the bead/chain slung "blouse" isabella rosellini wears in her role in that movie "Death Becomes Her". so awesome. you have to check it out. (if you haven't)

  4. I think chunky layered chains make a beautiful statement and delicate subtle layered chains are equally as nice. I'm exploring both right now. I do love the idea of mixing both gold and silver together...The ones you have now look great together.

  14. I loved those chains since I first saw them in the Givenchy collection. They're on my DIY list, hopefully I'll get to it soon.
