Just in time for Christmas Tom Ford includes a golden penis necklace to his high end jewellery collection.
This comes as no surprise. The designer has a history of using sex to sell. He’s had several ads banned, such was his 2007 men’s fragrance ad which featured a bottle of scent clutched between a model’s thighs and breasts. For his latest collection (spring/summer 2015) he’s made the nipple pasty high fashion (as seen on Rihanna and Miley Cyrus at the amFAR gala).
With a price tag of $800 (£500), this white 18 carat gold charm necklace is a risqué piece of luxury jewellery.
Ford’s phallic pendant comes in silver too. But that’s not all; it’s also available in small, medium and large – whether you want to be more discreet or not.
Even more ironic, or let’s say controversial, it has the shape of a crucifix, but not to offend Catholics, it’s clearly labelled as “the penis necklace” on its website.
