Working with Jazzelle Zanaughtti, more commonly known as Ugly Worldwide, was a dream come true for the team at Vitaly. A true non-conformist, Jazzelle’s playful yet razor-sharp approach to beauty, gender and self-expression has made them one of the most exciting faces in fashion today; and a perfect match for Vitaly’s future-focussed, genderless accessories.

Jazzelle‘s vision for the collaboration was clear from the very first call: “Medieval warrior fantasy, but from the future!”.

Over a year in the making, the Ugly Worldwide x Vitaly collection brings together Vitaly‘s contemporary design aesthetic with Jazzelle‘s singular directive.

Featuring bold expressions and futuristic body armor, the collaboration is made up of the Signal globe ring; the adjustable Paradox choker and the Synapse,  a series of interconnected lip and ear cuffs that can be worn individually or as one striking unit.

A robust metal hand-cover, aptly titled Guard, will see an individual release in the coming weeks.

As with all of Vitaly‘s accessories, each piece is completely genderless and made from 100% recycled stainless steel, which is chosen for it’s lifespan of over three decades.

The campaign was creative directed by Jazzelle herself, styled by Steph Major and shot by Connor Cunningham. Ugly Worldwide x Vitaly is available online now.
