Subversive Chainmail:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ever since the high Middle Ages, chainmail has been man’s way of defending himself against the enemy and against the elements. Just ask the Knights Tenplar or Joan of Arc… they were rocking in their chainmail!

In more recent years, Paco Rabbane reintroduced the world to chainmail in the mid-60’s and the rest is history! Even designers and fashion houses like the late Alexander McQueen and his still stabding fashion house have taken cues from this most seductive yet tough and masculine of materials.

You never know which battles you are going to have to choose to fight and it pays to be suitably chic when doing so… especially if it is by McQueen!
