Racked NYC thinks American Apparel is clearly trying to "corner the market on '90s nymphomaniac hip hop groupie costumes" with the launch of its line of gold-plated necklaces and bracelets, which run $20-$48. Apparently "AA didn't actually make these but instead 'found' the lot at the Esse-Pi Factory in Milan, Italy." Between this and the vibrators, AA is really becoming a one-stop shop for that moment when you need T-shirts, shiny leggings, heavy chains and sex toys.
