We know that the mind of Karl Lagerfeld contains many magical and mysterious things: glamour shots of his beloved Choupette, images of perfectly stacked bookshelves, chocolate sculptures of beautiful men and little furry monsters.

It’s only a matter of time before this concept trickles its way down to us non-heiresses. As of now, Marc Jacobs and Rebecca Minkoff are offering affordable takes on the statement strap (both of which are pictured below), but until the fast-fashion world catches up, here are a few of my favorite designer takes on this trend to watch.
