Vetements made a $750 weed grinder necklace so you’re always prepared, but also broke
Sometimes you just have to treat yourself. And when Vetements comes out with a weed grinder necklace for just $750, that’s the sign that it’s time. Of course, the first logo necklace the French designer came out with is not your average pendant on a chain, but an actual weed grinder you can wear around your neck so you never have to worry about clogging your vape again. When you think of it that way, it basically pays for itself.
Obviously, it’s super fucking ridiculous to buy a $750 weed grinder with a logo on it, but for some reason, I can’t help myself from really, really wanting it. This is possibly the only reason it’s worth being in a relationship around the holidays — so you can demand insane, material things. Like a $750 gold Vetements grinder necklace. I should get on finding someone who wouldn’t mind going into minor credit card debt for me.
Vetements had other smoking-themed items in past collections, like these amazing brown leather boots with heels that are made to look like Bic lighters. I know smoking kills, but there’s just something about these boots that gives me life. Just like that grinder necklace, and I don’t even really smoke weed anymore.
Vetements is based in Paris, and the collective is run by brothers Guram and Demna Gvasalia. In addition to being the head designer at Vetements, Demna is also the creative director of Balenciaga. So, basically he’s in charge of all of your fashion fantasies. Demna knows what we want — and he does think fashion should be useful.
In an interview with The Business of Fashion last year, he told Imran Amed, “A garment is a product. It’s not made to be in a museum. It’s meant to be in somebody’s wardrobe. ” But it’s also about fashion as art, which is probably why they think a $750 weed grinder necklace is something people will buy. Demna said in the same interview, “I don’t want to compare it to an artist working on an artwork — but it’s the same. You are kind of subconsciously in love with what you do, and I think as I am working on a hoodie, I love to work on that hoodie. That’s what enhances your ideas and your creativity.”
So modest, right? Don’t feel bad if you want the logo weed grinder to wear around your neck, though. Everyone secretly wishes they had thought of it. And since we don’t make Rihanna-money, I won’t judge if you DIY one for yourself.
