Vhernier ‘Haiti’ Ring

img most wanted vhernier haiti ring 170647819459 540x482 Vhernier Haiti Ring

Fashion and luxury can be great tools to raise capital for social/humanitarian causes, however, oftentimes in an effort to appeal to sensitivity  and compassion,  the images used have no connection to the actual items but everything to do with the cause they ‘re supporting. It’s like seeing a save the shildren, or prevent animal abuse  commercial that just happens to play right after a religious program.

One can say that showing the raw living conditions of an  impoverished country brings reality and hopefully compassion to the viewer and prospective consumer, but what also happens is that  these images  also  can create a sense of guilt,  an uneasiness that can propel action but also limit the interaction of the consumer with the offered product.

As controversial as this might sound while I believe in the goodness of humankind, not every consumer will be touched by every cause, or need be presented with the graphic images associated with the cause.  Luxury is about status, indulgence and also craftsmanship . The emotions connected to  luxurious beautiful items can be revisited over and over again, hence my appreciation for Vhernier’s “Haiti” Ring, whose sleekness of design and presentation is a great example of fashion and luxury with a social component that is implied but not forced. The consumer is seduced by the beauty of item and sometimes that is enough. Each ring purchased will provide a year of tuition for a child at St. Luc Street School and The Academy for Peace and Justice in Haiti. Purchasing info here.

David Webb Terry Richardson Ad: David Webb Ft. Terry Richardson Autumn 2012

Jewellery makers David Webb’s  take the unusual step of featuring Terry Richardson as shot with model Eniko for it Autumn 2012 print campaign. Yes, we are all quite used to seeing Richardson pose alongside his subjects on his own blog, but for brand campaigns as far as I can recall he always has been behind the lens. [UPDATE: No, says a commentor, Richardson has been featured in ads he has shot before so nothing new.] Sima Ghadamian, co-owner of David Webb, commenting on the campaign says:

“Featuring Terry Richardson in our 2012 ad campaign felt like a natural evolution. We are excited to include Terry as his vision embodies the bold, modern aesthetic of David Webb. Under the creative direction of Alex Wiederin, Terry’s playful yet seductive photography and Lori Goldstein’s ‘more is more’ style captured our brand flawlessly.”

The ads appear in the September issues of Vogue, Garage, Russian Tatler, Town & Country amongst others.

Onch Movement ‘My Little Pony’ Necklace

OnchMovementMyLittlePony2 540x540 Onch Movement My Little Pony Necklace

It appears My Little Pony is having a moment. First there was the Karl Lagerfeld and Lady Gaga inspired My Little Ponys and now we have Onch Movement offering a necklace themed around the silky-maned toy.  And do not fear, these items are officially sanctioned by Hasbro, which owns the keys to the stable housing all of the world’s Little Ponys.

On another note, if there is something vaguely familiar about the over-the-top nature of this necklace, it’s probably because Nicki Minaj is a big fan of the label and caused quite a stir when she sported the brand’s plastic, pink chicken wing necklace a while back.
