The Best Friendship Bracelets For Summer, Plus A Custom-Made Giveaway!

"Best friends forever." We've slapped on that label more than once, and while we may not be sealed for eternity to Veronica from Camp Tomahawk, it feels so good to have a BFF. And with your top confidant, however fleeting, comes the privilege of accessories, of which the friendship bracelet reigns supreme. While we're not still whittling away at Gimp, we'll always be in love with the summer tradition of slipping on some tokens of affection and watching them gain a patina of surf and sunlight that will keep you feeling golden when September hits. So, consider us stoked on our first look at Miansai's fall collection—courtesy of the label's New York born-and-bred designer Michael Saiger—that amps up the summer staple big-time. Nautical rope gets luxe with solid silver, tough cuffs would work equally well from Newport to Nolita, and those sharp fishing hooks could certainly fend off any pick-pocketer or pirate. Michael's taken a break from handcuffing his girlfriend (read on!) to walk us through his top bracelets —plus he's letting you in on an exclusive giveaway on his new ID offerings. Here's to non-sexual crushes! Flip through the slideshow to find out how to win!
