The Belgian designer Natalia Brilli puts a new spin on that old saw: If you have to ask how much, you can’t afford it. Among her catalog of curiosities is this fake Rolex watch, called a Nolex, which she covers in soft buttery leather, suggesting that if you have to know the time, you also can’t afford it.

Brilli, who has designed accessories at Rochas, is hypersensitive to the conclusions people draw about the character and status of someone wearing a luxury product. So far, she’s encased everything from skateboards to medical alert bracelets in black or silver leather. But sometimes, she’ll pick a bright electric hue. Really gorgeous if you ask me, I put the Nolex on my wishlist..
