Henson rocked at this year’s Emmy Awards, it’s that Wang sure does have a love for chunky metallic pieces. That’s perhaps exactly why the New York-based designer and former Balenciaga creative director is officially launching his own jewelry collection, WWD reports. Like the high-street appeal of his venerable ready-to-wear collections, the jewels deliver a downtown-cool sensibility thanks to chain-linked pieces produced in Italy and brass-plated in both palladium and 24-karat gold—earrings go for $295 and a double lock necklace is worth $525. This isn’t Wang’s first nosedive into the world of baubles, considering the talent previously has collaborated on limited-edition selections with Gaia Repossi and Betony Vernon, and also crafted memorable statement pieces for Balenciaga. .@AlexanderWangNY's first jewelry collection works with chunky lock and chain motifs [sub]: https://t.co/2Um3LKCRca pic.twitter.com/eyn4hOcCMs “I always wanted to do jewelry, but I never felt like I had the opportunity. I’ve had my hands quite full,” Wang told WWD. “But I really got exposed to it when I went to Balenciaga and I really enjoyed the process.” Relive Alexander Wang's Most Memorable Red Carpet Moments for Balenciaga The first selection of pieces was introduced on his spring 2016 runway and a new set of pill-inspired ones are a part of his pre-fall collection; however, you don’t have to wait too long to get your hands on the coveted goods. Alexander Wang’s jewelry will launch on alexanderwang.com and in Wang stores mid-December, as well as Net-a-Porter, Joyce HK, and Mytheresa.com in March.
