Balenciaga Wants to Bring the Slap Bracelet Back

A blast from fashion’s past.

Whats’s old is new again, like velour tracksuits by Juicy Couture and now slap bracelets courtesy of Balenciaga. Leave it to Demna Gvasalia to make himself responsible for the comeback of our favorite accessory from yesteryear — except his version will cost way more than the ones we used to get for a quarter out of a vending machine. Granted, they weren’t made out of 100-percent lambskin like these.

Available in bright pink or yellow (for that nostalgic ’90s touch) then branded with Balenciaga, the “Cycle” bracelets are retailing for $195 USD. If you’re in need of a blast from fashion’s past, get one at Balenciaga. Then check out other new items from the 2017 spring/summer collection, like the extra-large Blanket Bag.
