Nameplates were popular in graffiti and hip-hop cultures in New York in the 1970s. Since they’ve become synonymous with the bustdown jewelry scene and are a popular choice for any discerning drip aficionado.
Matthew M Williams, who was recently appointed as Givenchy’s new creative director, has updated his label’s signature Buckle necklace with a nameplate — reading out the brand’s full name. Turning the necklace around, you’ll find a rollercoaster buckle system in black, engraved with technical information and more branding.
The piece is made from brass and is coated in a vintage, slightly-tarnished gold-tone effect. Take a look at the 1017 ALYX 9SM Buckle necklace in the gallery above, and purchase one for yourself from Trading Post now, where it retails for $530 USD.
