Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière debuted his last collection with Balenciaga by sending models down the runway in his most sensual collection yet. But it wasn’t just the clothes that turned heads.

Ghesquière’s addition of these golden tube-shaped brass rings adorned on all five fingers of the models helped to accomplish the “edge” that is known to accompany Balenciaga’s sophisticated feel. The five-ring fad is now making its way off of the runway and onto the streets.

Think you could pull them off? Despite their hefty price of $765, companies like ASOS and online shopping sites like Etsy help you work around that with their similar, cheaper options. Or, buy them individually for $245 a piece and mix them with rings you already own!

    This looks a little painful to wear… or at least not very practical! Really interesting find though! I wonder if this will catch on and translate from the runway to stores around the country…
