Matches Fashion just so happen to agree with all of this praise, and are celebrating the anniversary of the dazzling accessory with an exclusive collection of six chainmail bags for the month of June. They’re also pairing this with twenty ready-to-wear pieces from the Pre-Fall 2019 collection — which absolutely includes those pieces featuring superb golden embroidery and that chainmail scarf.
