This necklace, featured in Karl Lagerfeld's 1991 "hip hop" collection for Chanel, recalls the gold chains worn by performers such as Run-DMC and Salt-N-Pepa. We wanted it for the museum's collections because it epitomizes the influence of street style on high fashion. The necklace is dressed with a pink and cotton wool Chanel suit from Spring 1994.
