Viva Vita Fede

Rarely do I get the chance to watch The Buzz.  I got to watch a few segments earlier and saw Charlene wearing a Vita Fede ring.
Making me remember Fergie who had a slightly different version of the ring:

Here's a close-up of this statement piece. I love the combination of leather and gold hardware, giving it a tough chick look :)

For those you are not familiar with Vita Fede YET, read on to find out more of the brand. Below is a feature I did on them for my column in Manila Bulletin:

Wrist Wraps
Hollywood’s affordable luxury accessory line has arrived 

Fashion retail houses fought the recession blues by working on special collaborations with designers to produce limited edition pieces. Thanks to the likes of Target, Forever 21, and locals such as Plains & Prints and Collezione, we can now own designer duds at a fraction of the cost.  Affordable thrills can be very addictive, right? Well, I’ve discovered a new brand that will surely kick start your shopping frenzy.

If you are into accessories from luxury brands like Gucci, YSL, Ferragamo, Fendi, Dior and Balenciaga, then you’ll surely love Vita Fede. This US accessory brand is known for employing the same skilled artisans who supply to the premiere fashion houses that are mentioned above. Each piece is handmade in Italy, using real Italian leather and plated in 24K gold with sterling silver hardware. So, you are reassured of owning accessories that have passed the highest standards and tastes.

Their “snap-and-wrap” leather bracelets are the firsts to make its way to the wrists of Hollywood celebrities, with Emmy Rossum, Halle Berry, Hilary Duff, Jessica Alba and Miley Cyrus being photographed wearing them. What I like most about these is that you can pile them on without going overboard. You can even snap two sets of these and turn them into a belt or a necklace. The possibilities are endless, as you can mix and match them to suit your style and personality.

Other items you should check out are their leather bangles, and wide leather cuffs with chain/stud details. Their Lagina bracelet has textured studs that are reminiscent of updated Balenciaga motorcycle bag, while the Bambu bangle has bamboo accents that are very much Gucci in style. There are more styles that are very designer-inspired, so they’re definitely worth checking out. Prices range from P2,250 to P9,750.

Though much known for their wraps and cuffs, Vita Fede now has statement cocktail rings and chain necklaces to complement their star products. Vita Fede is available at Culte Femme at Rustan’s Makati, Luca at Shangri-la Plaza and Eastwood malls, Firma in Greenbelt 3, and MIX in Greenbelt 5. Selected pieces are also being sold at Chocolate schu bar in Power Plant Mall.
