I say shoo to Balenciaga´s chou chou

Once again, fashion baffles me with come backs that quite frankly should stay back.  When I was glancing through my Elle mag the other day and saw these hair scrunchies, which I absolutely hated wearing when I was a kid in the early 90´s, worn as bracelets I was like `The world’s gone mad again!´, especially the price it´s going for. Nothing less but for £145 each. Cheap, huh?!


Who´s shown us these cringey little accessories on the catwalk again? Balenciaga, of course. Why do I say this? Well, I can understand how it sticks to Balenciaga´s philosophy of voluminous forms around the body and his new chou chou bracelet resembles his 1967 evening gown with `chou´wrap in silk Gazar.


You certainly cannot go unnoticed with these in your hair or as Balenciaga´s creative director, Demna Gvasalia, has done by accessorising the girls´ wrists on the runway.  It must be something personal I have against these lil guys and perhaps one day, I´ll realise just like with many other things that come into fashion, the more you see something, the more in grows on you. What’s your opinion about these scrunchy (excuse me, chou chou sounds more chic) bracelets?
