Can Julia Restoin-Roitfeld Bring Back Slap Bracelets?


The other day we were discussing the finer moments of early-nineties fashion, like slap bracelets. Shop-A-Matic editor Diana Tsui argued that they should rest in peace. Amy Odell argued that they may as well come back along with neon, since they're cheap and slap on, people. And lo, the other night in Moscow, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wore a bunch of glowing orange ones on her legs, after her friend found a stash of them at the after-party for an event celebrating new Pop editor Dasha Zhukova's museum. They were apparently intended for VIPs. Derek Blasberg calls them a "regretful late-night styling tip." We think they're fabulously nonconformist, which is ironic, since she and everyone else there wore Balmain. [Style File/]
