If unusually designed accessories are your thing and subtlety is not your style, look no further. You can land your dream jewellery now, approved by the best of designers. Yves Saint Laurent or YSL, a French luxury fashion house founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé, has released a new line of jewelry that includes a pair of dangly penis earrings and a matching necklace.
The dangle earrings, made in Italy, feature penises made from patinated golden brass and have ‘Saint Laurent Paris’ engraved on the back. They are somewhat pretty detailed in their design and are quite difficult to miss.
Coming to the cost of this bizarre accessory, the dangle earrings are priced at US$280, which will approximately be around Rs 20,335.
On the other hand, the matching golden pendant necklace is valued at US$795 (approximately Rs 57,752) and has the iconic logo hanging from the clasp instead. It is made with 100% brass and has an adjustable snap hook closing.
While we are yet to decide what is more bizarre – the design or the price, this is not the first time someone came up with X-rated jewellery designs.
A few years back Kesha came up with a line of penis-shaped accessories including earrings, charms, bracelets and a necklace. The range was part of her “Grow A Pear” jewellery line by Charles Albert.
Prior to that, Tom Ford, the American fashion brand, also released a pendant necklace featuring a phallic design which caused quite a controversy because it appeared to be in the shape of a cross.
If you were wondering who would burn a hole in their pockets for the YSL accessories, it would be a good time to know that despite their unusual design and hefty price tag, the earrings and necklaces have actually sold out. The products are both listed as ‘not available’ on the YSL website.
