Number (N)ine AW2004 Spider Web Necklace

375.00

Takahiro’s fall 2004 season’s title, “Give Peach a Chance", borrowed a turn of phrase from John Lennon, in an attempt to preach optimism in the face of great uncertainty. While in its time Lennon’s song was used as a rallying cry for opponents of the Vietnam war, Takahiro deployed it in a similar capacity, directly referencing the Iraq war, and imploring that George W. Bush be voted out of office (the collection was unveiled just months before the U.S. election). The runway itself was rich in desert camo pieces, Afghan scarves, and tattered shirts with bold anti-Bush political statements.

This necklace stays true to the indulgent gothicism of Number (N)ine’s jewelry, often made in partnership with Japanese jewelers MagicalDesign or Jam Home Made, who melded Takahiro’s morose iconography into heavy-weight silver pieces. Their craftsmanship was expressed in limited production runs and exorbitant retail prices, which reached over 100k yen for larger pieces such as this necklace. When strewn taut, this layered set of link chains forms a half-spider web across the wearer’s chest.

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws. Comes with original packaging.
