From boxing gloves to Beats headphones, Alexander Wang has proven he can make anything covetable, even the most perfunctory of objects. (He also has masterfully finessed the pot leaf motif, but that’s old news.) A dedicated smoker wearing a lighter around her neck is kind of like a nerd wearing a pocket protector, but when that lighter is wearing something imagined, and smartly styled, by Wang, its context shifts. It becomes intriguing.
Besides, both of these lighter case necklaces would look just as good, if not better, casually fastened to the outside of your designer bag or perhaps hanging from your rearview mirror. In black croc-stamped leather, which dangles from a thin silver chain and features a pave clip, it melds biker vibes with high-glam delicacy, owed to the lightly sparkling clip detail. Alternatively, what its coral croc-stamped leather sister lacks in ice it makes up for in fluorescent color. It also features a sporty thick ribbon strap, so you might look like you're wielding a whistle if you dare to actually wear it around your neck.
You can also opt for the for the keychain charm lighter cases (in gold and rhodium,rose gold and rhodium or black croc-embossed leather) for a more chill option—and at least a hundred bucks less. (See various options below). Available at Alexander Wang for $250 to $295.
