Style is a state of mind.

While we’re going at it with the androgyny trend, isn’t there something to be said about cufflinks? I love this Prada number above with white ceramic skulls wearing big beats headphones. So tongue-in-cheek and monochromically stylish retailing at £195 at Selfridges the last time I checked.

But women’s shirts rarely have the french cuff appropriate for such accessorizing and I wonder if designers should rethink this. I, for one would love a pair of these Ferrari inspired jewels (below) with the lemon yellow centre of a steering wheel to spruce up a white silk blouse or sharpen a denim shirt.

GTC2 Volante Cufflinks Lo-ResThere’s a shiny gap in the Accessories market that designers could tap into here. All I’ve found so far is Cuffwear who have designed a prototype model of magnetic cufflinks to attach to any cuff for the syle-conscious man or woman.

This is exciting stuff and they’re seeking funding for mass production through our favourite crowd-funding site  But the trouble is I don’t love their designs so far. Founder and inventor Marcus Duffin is interested in partnering with potential buyers to custom-make a design of your choice. Might be worth getting involved if you’re a budding accessories designer?
