Straddle that HOG!

In 1991 Chanel released the motorcycle collection to the world. Today we post two stunning pieces from that collection, both of them for the wrist. The first cuff is a layered series of five gold link chain sections, woven with strips of black leather. Beginning at the center is a large chain, then two medium size chains, and two small chains on the outer perimeter. The chains are stacked so the cuff has a pyramid shape. In the photo above, the cuff can be seen on the wrist of Helena Christensen (in yellow). The second cuff is a single large gold chain cuff, also with black leather strip weaving. On each link is a single griproix poured glass pearl dangling from one side. The pearls alternate sides at every link providing a perfectly balanced cuff. One side of the cuff is adorned with circular pearls, the other with teardrop pearls.
