Wrist-candy: Owen & Savary exotic leather cuffs
If you’ve always wanted to wear leather bracelets but fear the emo connection, or the price tag (in case you were considering Hermès’ Collier de Chien), then here’s what could be a last-minute addition to your weekend shopping list.
Owen & Savary is a young luxury brand that deals exclusively with leather cuffs and other small leather goods. Founded by Kira Owen and Valérie Savary, the brand’s creations have established a cult following among A-listers, including Julianne Moore, Cristina Ricci, and Salma Hayek.
O&S’ signature piece is the leather cuff, made from the finest exotic skins from Africa and the rest of the world, that features a soon-to-be iconic magnetised steel clasp. Skillfully made by the same French artisans who craft leather goods for major luxury houses such as Hermès, Goyard and Louis Vuitton, Owen & Savary’s unisex accessories are a fusion of old-world manufacturing techniques and cutting-edge technology (well, as cutting-edge as fashion jewellery can be).
Want one, or one in each animal skin? Check out Owen & Savary’s e-boutique at www.owensavary.com. If you hurry, you may be able to snag a leopard-print lambskin cuff for less than AED 700 – the Salomé is half off at € 126,50.
