1017 ALYX 9SM launched a new version of its Buckle necklace — it is only finished in an antique-effect gold-tone and comes with a nod the '70s with a modern laser-engraved nameplate.
In the 1970s, nameplates were common in New York graffiti and hip-hop cultures as they are synonymous with the bust down jewelry scene and are a popular choice for any discerning drip enthusiast.
Matthew M Williams, who has been recently appointed as the new creative director of Givenchy, has updated the Buckle necklace - a signature of his label - with a nameplate, reading out the full name of the brand. Turning the necklace around, you'll find a buckle rollercoaster system in black, engraved with technical information and more branding.
The new piece is made of brass and is covered in a vintage gold-tone effect that is slightly lacquered. Look at the 1017 ALYX 9SM Buckle necklace below, it is retailing for $530 dollars.
"I called ALYX after my daughter and it's all very personal about this project. I was thinking it had to be that way, because, you know, there are so many clothes in the world, so many things about selling actually. I felt like doing a dedicated job, in a lifelong project that needed to be intimate. Every time I think about a collection, it is 'what does it mean to live today,' 'what's important for clothing to be today,' 'how can these pieces be timeless,' I think that's leading me to what those collections look like, and building on the stepping stones we've been leading in the past.'
