Gold Chain The Chain Gang

Harper's Bazaar magazine has a hot new editorial team who seems to love jewelry. In the magazine's preview of spring fashion A to Z in January, it targeted brooches and gold chain as two trends to watch. It noted designers such as Carolina Herrara, Versace and Louis Vuitton all featured brooches. Gold chain is back also, the magazine said, for the first time since the television show "Dynasty." Hot designers from Gucci and Chanel to Stella McCartney's Chloé all attached the yellow metal to their avant garde designs in purses, satchels and boots.
