Is it just me? Or was this trend over a long time ago? Louis Vuitton first introduced the fox tail as a bag charm concept in their Spring 2010 collection. Others quickly followed, producing their own (more affordable) versions. I even wrote about one back in July 2010. Then… nothing. Maybe it has been long enough now that Horse + Nail decided the concept would look fresh once more. Meet the Horse + Nail Fox Tail with Eagle Skull!
Now I have never been a huge fan of the look. There’s just something about animal body parts as fashion accessories that doesn’t appeal to me. Sort of like having a “lucky” rabbit foot. It’s only creepy if you think about where it came from. What is different about this particular piece is the addition of an imitation eagle skull. Thankfully it isn’t a real eagle skull, considering it is illegal to own any part of a bird of prey. It is rather odd that an eagle skull was chosen as an accent though, but perhaps it has some sort of significance I am not aware of. The look is definitely different. So if that is the look that you are going for, then this piece might be just the thing for you. Just clip it onto any handbag and you’ll be set!
