When the fashion editor of Swide.com, Yuri Ahn, returned from her New York trip, she didn't come empty-handed to the office but with a small black velvet drawstring bag.
It read 'Barneys New York' and she said:
'Open it, it's your favourite color and I'm sure you can kill for it!'
As I opened my gift, I saw a flash of color: a hot pink. There you go, I was already in love but couldn't quite understand what it could be. I took it out on a full daylight and revealed the surprise of Yuri: it was a ClickClack watch. I had a vague idea of what it was but I still didn't know how I could put it on. 'Help me!' I said, excitedly.
She took the pink watch, straightened it up then told me to put out my arm. I did, I did... Yet the way she raised the watch like a bloody knife and slapped it back on my wrist with such velocity was rather horrifying! But the sensation was... fun! No pain, just lots of fun! I remember spending the whole day playing with my 'slap' watch in the office that way.
ClickClacks are not watches. They're bracelets designed by emerging artists. The project has a charitable side to it which makes your purchase even more worth your money. I checked their website and saw that at the moment, they have 5 illustrators who did 10 different designs for ClickClacks.
I placed an order earlier today on my favourite artist: Spiros Halaris. Well, I admit that I am biased. You might remember Halaris from Marcus Kan's introductory article here on Swide.com. He had even done an illustration for D&G!
Here is the one that I picked:
Which one will you be buying?
