Who knew that a safety pin could be the next big trend in fashion? The brilliant Marc Jacobs of course. His Pre-Fall 2009 Collection is cutting edge cool. I just viewed the collection at his store in SoHo and it is amazing. Taking the simple safety pin and using it to adorn chic handbags and jewelry is an interesting idea that he has executed very well. I am especially drawn to the little black and beige clutch with its punk vibe. Notice how the stone on the bag really turns it into a piece of jewelry. Marc is also selling the oversized safety pin alone to pin on anything you like.
The black stam with the beige trim and double safety pin is a classic but edgy combination.
This cobalt blue stam will really pop in a season filled with black and gray.
Marc Jacobs isn't the only creative designer with this idea. These Bodhi safety clutches are incredibly chic and modern. The enormous safety pins and ostrich leather are quite swoon worthy.
The smooth leather Bodhi clutches are gorgeous too.
This safety pin necklace by Marc Jacobs makes quite a statement.
These Marc Jacobs tassel earrings have a vintage feel.
This Marc Jacobs charm bracelet is so charming.
This C. C. Skye necklace is quite subtle and was featured on my beloved "Gossip Girl."
