Very few things/people/ appendages look good bound in leather.
But the provocative silhouettes in Natalia Brilli’s summer accessories will get the heart pumping.
The Belgian artist (and former Rochas accessories designer) wrapped her latest sculptures and curious objects in lambskin for a look that’s brilliantly clean and kinky.
The slender Stardust watch bracelet and the whistle charm necklace are tightly sheathed in gray suede (hot). Medal brooches and studded ruby leather wristbands are theatrically S&M. An update on an old classic — black leather pearls — can be preordered at Erie Basin for fall.
That should be enough to stimulate you.
