Fashion Meets Function: Design Hype’s Metro Cuffs

April 11, 2014 by

designhypemetrocuffFrom wall art to scarves to perfume, we love surrounding ourselves with things that remind us of our favorite travel destinations. That’s why we had to share our latest discovery—Design Hype’s metro cuff collection.

Made from stainless steel, each cuff bracelet is embossed with the subway map of a major city, complete with subway lines, numbers and streets, making them not only stylish but functional, too.

In the days of smartphones, it’s nice to have a no-tech option for getting around an unfamiliar city without worrying about looking like a tourist (aka, using a paper map). Simply steal a inconspicuous glance at your wrist, like you’re just checking the time, and get your bearings.

Design Hype’s collection includes designs for NYC, London, Paris, Milan, Chicago, Berlin and Brooklyn. Depending on the location, the cuffs are available in a number of different finishes (stainless steel, matte embossed, shiny embossed) and colors (we love the Chicago cuff embossed in tangerine).

Design Hype’s metro cuffs retail for $37 each and can be purchased on their website.
