Vices for the Vain

As a new resident of Los Angeles, I thought Vice and Vanity was a perfect fit for my initial blog post as I settle into my new city, as LA has garnered a reputation of both feeding vices and housing the vain.  

This instantly recognizable line out of the Joo Chiat area of Singapore gives a new meaning to the term "statement jewelry."  The pieces are architectural, yet cartoonish, sophisticated, yet playful, and for the fashionati, ultimately and decidedly vice-worthy.

Each piece is handcrafted with painstaking detail and an interesting juxtaposition of materials.  With three collections under their belt, Vice and Vanity is definitely evolving as the line is coming of age.  The latest collection is definitely the most delicate and elaborate with a couture proclivity.

You can shop online at vice and vanity.
