The chunky chain is yet another 90s trend that is back with a vengeance. Originally confined to our necks, wrists and ears, these oversized links have broken free, giving this season's bags and shoes a welcome touch of glamour. Whether a flamboyant feature or in the form of a shoulder strap, the chunky chain is the unexpected detail that guarantees every classic a fresh modern look. Often covered in luxury gold or silver, these jewellery-like components are all about making a statement, to give our accessories a lift. Yuzefi and Simon Miller opt for resin, for a more playful, casual feel, while at Osoi and Manu Atelier, it’s the unusual avant-garde shapes that ensure the links stand out. Combining a street-style vibe and an element of couture, chunky chains guarantee maximum impact with minimum effort.
