Daylight Robbery: Pink bracelets by Luis Morais

pink-bracelets

“Iconic” and “spiritual” are the two words the people at Colette feel best describe these pink bracelets by Luis Morais.

Given that the bracelets in question retail for £787 / $1285, we’d like to suggest two more words. They are: “daylight” and “robbery”. The fact that the clover detail is 18c gold doesn’t change our assesment of that, either.

Anyone like to suggest any more?

    You can make them yourself for cheaper with supplies from craft stores.

    Daylight robbery indeed.

      And can make it look less cheaper with that.

    “holy” and “crap.” You are looking at a dollar’s worth of supplies there. Yeesh!

    Unless on the side of the bracelet not visible to the camera has a ruby the size of my fist on it, yes it’s a daylight robbery.

    At that price, those beads better be made of crystallized unicorn tears.

    They look rather like these cheap plastic bracelets I had when I was very young…

    Any 8 year old could make something like this on a trip to the bead shop. Maybe the designer’s daughter when nuts with the beads?

    I think I would save the rent money AND get my niece to make me one in kindergarden

    Or splurge and simply buy pink pearls and some elastic band and make it myself 🙂
    Maybe I should make more and sell them to sucka’s for this bracelet
