A luxury designer has been criticised for releasing a necklace that looks like a phone cord.
Bottega Veneta seemed to draw inspiration from 90s and early 00s jewellery.
It looks like the curly chokers that were worn two decades ago.
But unlike the retro necklaces that could be snapped up for a couple of quid, the Italian fashion house’s accessory retails for around £1,700.
Amusingly, you could probably create your own version of the jewellery by using some old phone cord.
It looks a lot like the curly wires you get on landline phones – and you can go all out by making matching earrings too.
Fashion fans are understandably baffled by the release.
Many have taken to Twitter to mock the pricey necklace for looking like a phone cord.
One commenter remarked: “Ummm… Bottega, girl. Let’s talk about this phone cord y’all are selling as a necklace. A $2,000 necklace.”
Another said: “Bottega Veneta is trying to sell you the twisted up landlines phone cord from your grandma’s house as a $2,000 necklace. Hard pass.”
And a third added: “Bottega trying to sell a house phone chord for £2,000.”
What do you make of the Bottega necklace? Let us know in the comments section below.
This isn’t the only accessory to go viral for all the wrong reasons.
Previously, shoppers mocked Moschino’s £758 clutch bag that looks like a ‘Subway footlong’.
Meanwhile, ASOS were tolled for selling studded Crocs described as “2020 in a shoe”.
And a second-hand Louis Vuitton handbag with holes in it went on sale for £8,780.
