This statement piece by Viennese accessories brand And I is made from gold-coloured anodised aluminium and black elastic. When worn, the simple prongs of the necklace sit just above the collar and look stunning against a plain silk blouse. And I was founded by Andreas Eberharter in 2001, and came to international attention when several pieces were used in Thierry Mugler’s men’s fashion show for autumn/winter 2010; one of its eye patches also featured in the music video for Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi. Trained as a goldsmith and sculptor, Eberharter has garnered various awards over the years, with the Vienna Awards for Fashion and Lifestyle naming him Best Accessories Designer in 2010 and Best Designer Branding in 2012.
