The Vitaly team, led by Zack Vitiello, invited Oli Sykes to produce the limited release for their label. Drop Dead founder, and Bring Me the Horizon frontman worked within the brand’s cyberpunk design language to achieve a cogent line of four jewellery items. There is a harmonious creative synergy between Syke's metalcore musical history and the brand’s punk sensibilities. The collection introduces organic, amorphously angled steel isolates. The pieces visually echo one another; the ear cuff particularly recalls the mirrored geometries applied to the ring. In this way, the collection is playful and experimental. The set of iterations is also highly flexible in its use and styling potentials – acid is modelled as both a waist chain and a necklace.
With clear references to the y2k sci-fi aesthetics that inspired the collection, the capsule’s accompanying editorial further plays with the jewellery’s geometries. The organic forms are abstracted and are expanded into flame-like intrusions in the images. Both chains feature Vitaly’s icon, the Glyph, which also appears alongside Drop Dead’s logo on the Lab Team Tee. As always, the collection is genderless and produced using recycled stainless steel. Available online now, the pricing ranges from $42 - $120.
