The ‘Weird n Kinky’ line from Chris Habana is like a grimy night out. In 2004, Habana unleashed his inner diva to create the outlandish accessory line. Inspired by 90s pop gay culture, gothic iconography and old-school rave days, the pieces are anything but plain. The jewelry frequently features spikes, crosses, triangles and an assortment of other reworked basics.

Chris Habana infuses his work with his personality and enthusiasm for wild style. The line includes gender symbols, hand cuffs, gilded cross brooches and a safety pin veil. The pieces are bold and daring, but remain wearable. The jewelry is a perfect addition to any outfit, giving it major sass and radical glamor.

The line has become hugely popular and has been featured in Nylon, Teen Vogue and Spin. Stats for 90s Raver Accessories Trending: Older & Average
