ITEM OF THE WEEK

Take the hard line with Vitaly’s Kusari bracelet. The chunky, stainless steel piece has a modern rocker vibe that complements off-duty gear (think denim, plaid and lots of black or white tees) and works to add a finishing detail to casual evening looks.

What is Kusari? KursaiĀ was used in samurai armour from the 1270s but particularly from the Nambokucho period of 1336-1392. The rings were lacquered black to prevent rusting and were always stitched onto a backing of cloth or leather. Kusari was often concealed entirely between layers of cloth.
