The collier de chien, or CDC, bracelet by Hermes is one of the house’s iconic designs. I have always loved the way it looks – chic, edgy, rocker chick. Generally, it is made of leather with the metal studs and closure.
When they came out with an all sterling version last spring, I was in love. Couldn’t wait to see it and try it on. Alas, when the day came, it did not love me back. For one thing, even the leather cuffs just looked bad on me. I have small wrists but it turned my forearm to my hand into one thick line. Not pretty. And the silver one wasn’t any better, and was quite fiddly to get on and off.
