The Jackson legacy: Philippe Audibert Mitaine Swarovski crystal silver glove

I’m afraid so guys. That is indeed “glove” – singular, and this is indeed a single glove. Net-a-Porter helpfully advise wearing it with a blazer and jeans as an alternative to jewelery. They offer no such advice for what to do in case of being sectioned when the general public spot you wearing it…

The Fashion Police are actually seriously concerned about the potential use of this particular fashion accessory as a dangerous weapon. It is, after all, technically chain mail, and being cut from a series of tiny “Swarovski crystal and silver-plated metal discs” must be quite sharp. It would put the knuckle-duster to shame in a fist fight. And what of the wearer’s personal safety: should she accidentally skim past any delicate fabric or, heaven forbid, go to tuck a stray hair behind her ear – the horror!

For this reason we are pleased to inform you that this particular accessory is currently out of stock! Which means that an awful lot of people apparently have more money than sense when it comes to buying impractical accessories…

Should you wish though, and should you have £720 to spare, you can add it to your Net-a-Porter wishlist to be emailed when more stock becomes available.

    Yeah, Michael’s unfortunate passing just had to coincide with the most horrifyingly tenacious 80s revival imaginable, didn’t it.

    I’d like it better if it came in plain chainmail. And if it was sold in pairs…

    Hi there,
    I actually own one. I’m afraid I must be one of the “awful lot of people who apparently have more money than sense when it comes to buying impractical accessories”. I’m very sorry to disapoint you Caroline but I’ve never killed anyone while wearing it, nor ruin anything, nor gone bald because my hair got stuck in it. Since I believe you’ve never tried it on – please stop me if I’m wrong – I believe your comments are a little out of place.
