What is a metal band, has screw thread pattern cut or pressed, has a captive screw on one end and use to clamp a hose into a fitting? If a hose clamp is your answer, you are half right because it could also be a bracelet. Wait, what? A bracelet that looks like a hose clamp? Well, it may sound totally bonkers and absolutely surreal but yes, those are the designs you find on the Balenciaga Tool Bracelet.
In any case, don’t try to use to clamp any fitting because the only thing it will slip-on is a human’s wrist and you want to make sure of that because at US$950 a pop (or US$659 after discount), this “hose clamp” is a luxury.
Thankfully, this brass-made bracelet has Balenciaga branding to remind you that it is NOT a hose clamp. Also, I don’t believe the top screw is functional. I could be wrong, though.
