It’s hard enough to spot celebrities from afar- but getting close enough to TOUCH them? That’s pretty much impossible, unless you’re New York designers Bruce and Glen. These twin brothers are determined to get their collection of high fashion slap bracelets noticed, so they’ve been going around town literally slapping Beyonce, Coco Rocha, and Trey Songz with their awesomely out-there creations. But don’t worry, they didn’t get slapped back. In fact, the bold marketing strategy is totally working. The designers’ eponymous collection of studded, mirrored, leopard and neon accessories is officially bringing back ’90s slap bracelets, once and for all.
After earning their design chops at Sean John, American Rag, and House of Dereon (which explains the Beyonce connection), the guys broke off to establish their own eponymous label earlier this year. Taking cues from the old-school staple (which, let’s be honest, used to get us in trouble in class), the glam BruceGlen version comes in luxe leather, embellished with stones, and even GLOW IN THE DARK. Talk about a stylish party trick! They’re fun, cool, and look just as cute with a cocktail dress as they do paired with jeans and old t-shirt. Prices start at $50, so shop the collection here…but slap at your own risk.
