Dangerous Liaisons


CC introduces fashion that alarms, and may even harm!!

Allesandro Dell'Acqua spiked skirt – beautiful to behold but perhaps not comfortable to sit on?

Dsquared2 clutch
What to buy? Fellow Fashionista Made by Girl introduced CC to these fierce accessories by Pamela Love, whose eagle claw cuff is pictured at left. This line can be purchased at Eva New York, on Mulberry Street. Click here for more information.
Fallon spiked ring.
Available at buydefinition.com.

Bing Bang nail dagger charm bracelet.

Last but not least: this Zac Posen “earringnecklace” for Spring 2009 may not be spike-adorned, but it certainly looks cumbersome! Do you dare enter fashion’s danger zone??

If I were to try out this trend, I'd probably go with the ring or necklace

WendyB said...

And I thought some of my designs were ferocious!

michelle said...

Wow, I think it's too fierce for me to pull off though :P

fashionista said...

I do like the ring.

And how in the world does that Dell'Acqua skirt work? :)

Tia said...

Wow! You could kill someone with those things! 'Death by ring'! Hehe!
I like the ring & the shoes, maybe the bracelet but I'm not punk enough for that.

enc said...

I love all that stuff! I'd do it if I had someplace to wear it.

...love Maegan said...

I'm loving the vampiness for fall.

Anonymous said...

I love the first shoes. And I've got a spiky bracelt, haven't worn that in a while...

Nothing Elegant said...

This stuff is creepy, amazing...and highly impractical ;) I'm pretty sure if you tried to get on a plane with any of these accessories, they would call you in for questioning.

La Belette Rouge said...

I think it speaks to the anxiety that people feel in the world. Soon, armor will find its way into haute couture.

THE HOUSE OF STYLE said...

Lurve the Bing Bang dagger charm braclet,it is so interesting! wow i remember my shock when I first saw the Rodarte heels,which was awe ;o)
I'd actually wear them Carrie,probably with a really understated outfit.I am lusting after the Burberry cuffs too! Best not to get to close to anyone in them though ;o)
muah!

Kat said...

hollyshambles.x said...

ooh! i know its perhaps not the most remarkable of things there, but that ring is pretty badass :D i love it!

Savvy Mode SG said...

at least a gal can defend herself. that is if i don't do harm to myself first. : )

Dapper Kid said...

LOVE the spikey heels! I am totally tempted to buy the pyramid studded black Nike hi tops lol. And I do love the ring :)

STEFANIE said...

Those rodarte heels are dangerous^-^! I wonder if someone will buy those, but they're cool anyway :) And I absolutely LOVE that cuff by Pamela Love but my sister thinks it's scary!

amethyst said...

thank you sooooo much for the link :)

Annie said...

The skirt kind of look like cake icing decorations!

Anonymous said...

I love the ring! I have to say a little spike here and there certainly brings a dangerous element to any garment - it's totally a look I love :D

Sharon Rose said...

haha, fierce indeed!!

myriam said...

Those rodarte heels are hunting me!! Is it a sign that I might need them?
xx

Secretista said...

With jewelry like this, there's no need for pepper spray!

The Seeker said...

Intriguing....
But some could be wapons...

coco said...

I love the shoes at Rodarte. All of these are stunning though. Great selection.

Kirby said...

Hmmm..... i'm a bit of a klutz .... i think i could hurt myself with those.

sydneydoll said...

that spiked skirt is to die for.
DEFINITELY make an impression : )

LucyinStLou said...

I think I had best not dare. I'm such a klutz I would hurt myself or a loved one. Seriously.

melmo said...

Sigh... this is what I want to wear. I'm a crazy girl:D
anyone else?!

Debbie Shiamay said...

Haha... Good for self protection!!

Couture Carrie said...

Nicole Linette said...

Rodarte made their collection so badass for this season :]

Fashion_Girl22 said...

Those really are some dangerous pieces. The YSL Fall 2008 shoes are also alittle on the daring side too. I'm strangly attracted to those Rodarte's though. <3

TRISH said...

I'm so in to fringe these days. ;) I love how creative designers are when it comes to that fringe look. ;) Love this post!

LuLu124 said...

gosh i just absolutely ADORE heels but being a student i have sooo little occasions to wear them!!! (i don't think the school would appreciate me stomping down the hallways in six inch stilettos ;D) sighh i guess that's what i've got the rest of my adult life for ;))) xoxo, lulu ♥

gilda said...

in case you don't know, i love love love spikes. HAVE YOU SEEN MY JUNYA BOOTS?!?

louboutin for rodarte had me salivating for the longest time. but nope, i can't afford it.

La Clocharde said...

I love all that Rodarte collection...The way they mix delicate garments with spikey punkish shoes, it works so well.
