Artillery Accents

Embracing bullets as fashionable accoutrements

Implications - In 2009, we discussed the glamorization of weapons in fashion through the proliferation of gun-inspired clothing and footwear. Now, the design direction has narrowed, focusing more on bullets and artillery to accent necklaces, rings and bracelets than overt displays of weaponry. For style mavens and fashion consumers, these subtle yet sassy accents allow for a tough-chick edge without going overboard.
