Spotted! Vice and Vanity



Vice and Vanity, is known for taking jewelry to new places, by creating idiosyncratic, industrial-chic pieces. Former Club21 employee, Vivi Masturah Lim and Fine Arts graduate, Aaron Kao are the designers behind the label.

Says Aaron, “We always try to originate new ideas, never restricting ourselves to a certain style or look. Our style is a work in progress and may or may not surface so quickly over a few collections. It takes time to develop a style. For every collection we always ensure that the quality is there and we want people to pay for something that has a lot of thought and effort put into the creation.”


Although there are quite a few bold pieces in the 2008 collection, I was particularly smitten with the art-oriented design of the Ake brooch and the Adria collar. As Aaron told me, “The Ake brooch is an extension of the Adria collar. This collection basically stems from sketches of circular shapes, weird outcrops and angular lines for the more masculine looking cages. It doesn’t represent anything specific other than a ‘shape’.”

Spotted! is a digest of fly work by fresh off creatives.
