Toronto-based fashion jewellery label Vitaly has released the editorial for its summer 2021 collection which examines the brand’s fascination with space and technology.
Titled “Metamaterials”, which are engineered structures designed to interact with electromagnetic radiation, the collection re-purposes stainless steel making every product 100% recycled. This steel is utilised to create a range of jewellery that experiments with abstract shapes. These shapes are intended to appear “otherworldly”; the brand’s interpretation of debris found at crash sites of non-terrestrial origin.
See the full collection below, with the first drop consisting of the Retract Ring which moulds together two rings into a chunky design.
