Designed as part of his 'Through the Looking Glass' collection, this leather lion necklace by Andres Gallardo celebrates baroque opulence.

With the growing popularity of baroque imagery, luxury labels like Versace and Dolce & Gabbana are bringing this opulent aesthetic back into the style spotlight.

Andres Gallardo is another designer to reference vintage baroque imagery and updates the aesthetic in his latest design. The black, leather-made lion necklace features white porcelain and gold toned metal accents.

The statement accessory is adorned with porcelain star shapes and a large lion relief that is its most vivid detail. Though embracing classic opulence, this accessory modernizes baroque motifs and replaces traditional gold with a modern combination of black and white tones.
