On Our Radar: A.L.C. Jewelry
Checking out all of the new, covet-worthy accessories on the Spring runways, I’ve already replaced quite a few items on my lengthy must-have list (Prada’s Tin Lizzie engine heels, hello). But I’m still harboring a fetish with the chic handcuffs from the Louis Vuitton and Givenchy Fall collections. Unfortunately, I can’t afford to get my hands on those big-ticket extras without ending up in a real pair of police handcuffs. Enter Andrea Lieberman’s reasonably priced line of jewelry ($95-$495) for her label A.L.C. After starting small for Resort with simple tennis bracelets and pendant necklaces, Lieberman is ramping up her offerings for Spring, showing pieces like a sleek double bondage bracelet in polished brass, above, that screws open at the side (no locks or keys here). “I used a lot of bondage elements and softened them to be more feminine,” she told Style.com. Another standout was the silver cuff with linked shark mouths chomping on ceramic Swarovski pearls. “Like a lot of pieces in the collection,” Lieberman said, “it’s lovely from afar and a little bit dangerous up close.”
A.L.C. jewelry can be purchased in late October at Barneys.
