Friendship bracelets are having an extended moment. They've come a long way from my camp cabin, where my friends and I would knot bracelets using our big toes as hooks (I promise it seemed normal).
Vena Cava's SS 2010 invites were friendship bracelets. Lucky editor Jenny Kang's line Bracelets by Dad, has graced the wrists of Alexa Chung and Leighton Meester. Lauren is mad for Parisian designer Aurelie Bidermann's 'Do Brasil' bracelet which knots gold links right in with the colorful embroidery thread. Now J.Crew has partnered with Frieda & Nellie to produce a line of one-of-a-kind friendship bracelets that have rhinestones and metal woven into the embroidery thread.
We wouldn't mind if our besties gave us any of these.
