In grade school, every girl used to make single-strand beaded bracelets and necklaces. Rings if you were lazy, earrings if you were an over-achiever. It was just what it meant to be a young girl in the late ’90s. The weakest-sauce kind of crafting imaginable.
So naturally John Mayer slapped his name on it and is selling it as menswear jewelry for $125-160 a pop. Well done, Johnny May May!
You can also buy a set of patches that say “Love Is a Verb” or “A Little Bit of Summer’s What the Whole Year Is About” because he’s Jimmy Buffett now I guess.
On that note, yes, there’s the stretchy bead bracelet we all used to wear with our Abercrombie hoodies in high school when we thought it was fly when girls stopped by for the summer, for the summer. Only this one is $60 because go fuck yourself.
These are being reported on as a collaboration between Mayer and designer George Frost, but according to Mayer they just appeared in his store one day, where they are described as part of “our capsule collection” with Frost.
So they might be magic. And the beads apparently have messages in Morse code. Sure why not. You can buy them here. Stock up and ensure no one wants to fuck you.
