Editorial Prints Featuring Chains

Chains can be used in many forms especially in editorial prints. Chains can be considered glamorous, punk, gangster, or even precious based on how they are styled. Each of the following editorials have used chains in a series of ways yet one thing remain the same they are all created from similar metals. Similar to chains, people are born the same but shaped differently based on their culture, or upbringing. Fashion editorials may be selling clothes but they have can be considered an art form as well. Next time you pick up one of your favorite magazines try and examine the meaning or relevance of the glossy editorial. You may be surprised what you come across.

The punk theme truly brought nostalgia to the city and encouraged everyone to dress the part. We loved how each starlet had fun with their looks and we’re dying to DIY our own punk project.
