Simply hot.

I was surprised to see this particular model because it immediately reminded me of these old black and white photos I once saw of Arab brides in the airport of Bahrain once. All that gold is totally the region’s style.

The designer is the one and only Italian, Riccardo Tisci, who is said to have taken the inspiration from ancient queens of North Africa. The spiky, heavy gold chunky jewelery and cuffs are absolutely amazing.

Maybe this means I can wear my gold cuffs and over the top necklaces from India soon and not be tacky…
