This "Chain Mail" Editorial Features Metal Must-Haves From Alexander Wang & Helmut Lang

Get some inspo.

HBX has curated an editorial highlighting one of 2018’s hottest trends — metal accessories. The inspiration was pulled from ’50s biker subculture which included items like the wallet chain. The wallet chain at first served as a functional product preventing motorcyclists from losing their belongings while on the road. The item has now transitioned fully into fashion with the help of the ’70s punk movement which served as a precursor to street style as we know it today. Now, metallic add-ons have been dominating runways serving as accents for clothes and also appearing in the form of jewelry and bags.

In the “Chain Mail” photo spread above the model is styled in clothing from Finnish womenswear label Aalto. Its raw denim straight-leg jeans is paired with an all-black bralette and Alexander Wang‘s popular Attica fanny pack. The fanny pack has also made a strong comeback appearing in almost all of our Fashion Week streetsnaps. In case its $550 USD price tag is a bit steep we also rounded up some affordable options that will work well for the spring. Standout items from the lookbook include Aalto’s sleeveless denim jacket which is paired with Helmut Lang‘s vinyl skirt. You have to admit that the vinyl trend is something you want to try. We recommend also exploring chain jewelry which brands like Martine Ali and Jil Sander have embraced.
