The ultimate accessory: Khoon Hooi's zipper belt

This zipper belt by Khoon Hooi, a Malaysian designer, is so original that I've never seen anything remotely like it. The satin belt is embellished with a zipper (which doesn't serve any functional purpose except as a unique decoration), as well as chiffon, wood, pearl, and jewel pieces. The result is a slightly strange--yet aesthetically pleasing--belt, which is fastened high on the waist with two hooks. Khoon Hooi's innovative belt can easily add some novelty to a plain dress or tunic. Definitely an accessory for a bold girl, the belt is on sale for $91.80.
