Christmas is fast approaching and if you’re still stuck for ideas then Franklin Prince’s bracelets (£10) make the perfect stocking filler or thoughtful Secret Santa. Hippy chic is not something you often see on Brandish and to be quite honest I’m glad, but these bracelets are like a smarter, more grown-up version of the tat you wear around your wrist as a teen; men’s jewellery doesn’t get much better than this.

Lapo Elkann, Fiat heir and Gianni Agnelli’s grandson wears similar style bracelets with a suit to personalise a formal look and it’s a damn sight more stylish than donning a pair of novelty socks which lets face it, no one wants for Christmas!

Ex-Dior Homme Designer Jordan Askill Bejewels DSM!

By Will Reid on September 22nd, 2008

JAskill1_Pendant08_b.jpgJordan Askill, a designer whose work for Dior Homme and Ksubi has cemented him as a name to keep an eye on, has launched a jewellery collection at Dover Street Market (DSM.) Dover Street Market is a fashion emporium founded by Rei Kawakubo and her husband and it has become known for its artistic installations, exclusive lines and designer collaborations. In previous years, we’ve seen a hotel room designed by Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and a Tiki-hut check-out.

Akill’s jewellery line is made up of edgy, androgynous pieces that could be worn by either guys or girls and Vogue reports that “the debut jewellery offering features bird, boy and rose motifs as fragile and rare entities – the flora, fauna and humanity of life – set in a claw to denote them as “precious memories to capture“. Lovely.

Paul Smith Bracelet

By admin on February 26th, 2008

These bracelets from Paul Smith have been around for a while but they’re proper nice. They’re quite masculine for a bracelet and they manage to straddle the hippy-luxury divide by being both a beaded bracelet but also made of silver.
It’s jewellery for the man who doesn’t wear jewellery and at £75 it’s quite affordable. The website says it’s 40cm long, but I think that’s a mistake as that would be longer than the average belt.
Available from the Paul Smith online store.


Martin Margiela watchstrap bracelet

By Isabelle on April 10th, 2007

It’s a lot of money to pay for a joke, but this watchstrap bracelet from Browns is pure Martin Margiela po-faced humour with it’s face-less watch bezel. The mysterious designer has never been photographed in public so I can’t help but think of his face every time I see this bracelet. The bracelet will set you back £155, and I think it would be a little ridiculous to wear but I’ve fallen in love with the concept. How’s about £2.50 for the concept Martin?
