Welcome back from vacation MTM readers! It’s been a lot of work (on a new venture) and a lot of play in Montauk. One of the things I brought home with me from the East coast was my first piece from Miansai, a jewelry collection of wrap bracelets, metal bangles, and necklaces for both men and women.
Two years ago I ran into the line as it was growing up in Saturdays SoHo store. My bf had read about them in GQ and insisted on picking up a bracelet while in NYC. As we were choosing one, I thought to myself, “I like this for me.” The brand has blown up in NYC, opened their own storefront on Crosby in SoHo, and even had a pop up airstream at Navy Beach, which is where I ran into them again.
My friends and I browsed all of the pieces. Prices for bracelets start at $55. So many options between the different color bands (leather, python, or rope), dipped metals (gold, rose gold, or silver), and clasps (hook, anchor, loop). They give you the opportunity to mix in a little color to your everyday wrist wraps.
I also love the bangles. Substantial and heavy, they look good solo on your wrist or in your favorite group of bracelets. Other accessories include a new line of watches (starting at $495) and canvas shoes called Saludos.
In the end, my friends bought bracelets and I went with a gold anchor pendant on a sterling silver chain. I haven’t taken it off since!
What I love about their designs is that they’re simple yet noteworthy. They draw attention and respect without bling or a high price.
