Vetements has done it yet again—transforming unusual objects into equally curious accessories. Its latest object in question is a throwing star that has been reworked into a keychain. And before you think of asking: No, we're pretty sure that the Vetements throwing star keychain is not sharp enough for you to live out your childhood fantasy of being a ninja.
Although, if you're one to get a bit fidgety during meetings or just in general, this may be a somewhat cooler alternative to a fidget spinner (thankfully, that's a fad that died down quick).
To be completely honest, this isn't by far the most outrageous product to come from the brand. But Vetements being Vetements, we can't even justify cashing out SGD914 for a non-functional throwing star. Sure, it'll help to secure your keys together; other than that, it's a very expensive piece of decorative brass, especially if one is prone to losing their keys every now and then.
Fans of the brand might lap this up purely because of the absurdity and badass appeal. But if you're not leaning towards the throwing star keychain, here are five other curious key-organising creations by fashion brands.
Polyester mini bum bag keyring, by Givenchy (SGD800 each)
What's better than having a bunch of keys attached to something decorative? Having them attached to something that's actually functional. Store loose change, AirPods and perhaps other entry-related accessories in this Givenchy creation so that they're all well within reach.
Leather key fob, by Rick Owens (approximately SGD340 each via MATCHESFASHION)
No matter where one gets their lighter from—convenience store-bought or a fancy refillable one—keep it sleek and stylish with this Rick Owens key fob. Designed to fit most regular-shaped lighters, you'll never forget your keys again (or to smoke, unfortunately).
Leather penis keyring, by JW Anderson (SGD146 each)
Grab everything by the balls, quite literally, with this unmistakably shaped keyring by JW Anderson. Perhaps this will deter anyone from stealing your keys.
Leather mini Chiquito keyring, by Jacquemus (approximately SGD165 each)
The world's already pretty non-functional accessory gets an update in the form of a keyring. To be fair, it's actually a better use of Jacquemus' famed mini Chiquito silhouette than the original that could hold literally nothing. At least now it's decorative and functional.
Plastic UBear key fob, by Undercover x Medicom (approximately SGD32 each via Mr Porter)
Undercover's Rebel Bear figure is now something that you can hold on to all the time in the palm of your hand, thanks to the brand's continuous collaboration with Medicom. Available in three colours, everything from the packaging to the details of the tiny figurine have been meticulously crafted for enjoyment and appreciation.
