Anatomik | Vampire Jewelry From Fendi

Updated on September 25, 2010

It puts the jewels on its skin - or else it gets the alligator skin hose again. That's how I picture Delfina Delettrez came up with her oh so nearly grotesque line of anatomically based jewelry, and as she's not spilling the beans on how it really happened, that's the story I'm sticking with too.

The Italian house of Fendi has long been known for creating fashion that borders on extreme art. Fendi isn't merely a fashion label however, it is an established fashion family. Beauty runs in the blood. To own a little piece of fashion history is something of an honor - and certainly a weighty symbol of status that can be pulled out and gazed over when one is feeling the consequences of a little low self esteem.

In the past, Fendi created nigh fairytale designs, jewelry fit for royalty. The next generation of Fendi is already pushing the boundaries of what is and is not possible. Delfina Delettrez Fendi, the 22 year old heiress to the Fendi fashion empire has a genuine passion for jewelry that borders on the quirky, and her self proclaimed obsession with eyes no doubt means that there's an interesting vault in some Italian catacombs just full of bejeweled eyes waiting to be found. In the meantime however, we must content ourselves with tales of her newest range, based on the human body.

Vampire fang cuffs are but one of the many pieces currently making their way around the world. There are also skull cabochon rings, diamond encrusted pinky fingers. When asked to explain why her collection looks like a jumble of disembodied human parts, Delfina Delettrez Fendi (who may or may not appear behind you if you say her name into a mirror three times at midnight) had this to say: “I have always been fascinated with the body; I don’t know why."

There's something very classic and gothic about this collection that the world undisputedly needs right now. When gazing upon this jewelry, I am put in mind of a greasy surgeon pouring over a cadaver with a tallow candle strapped to his forehead with a scalpel in one hand and a little vial of molten gold in the other.

Embracing the dark need not be the domain of spotty angst ridden teenagers who look good in gothic overcoats and who can wear five tonnes of mascara without being fired from the office for doing so. Kudos and praise to the high priestess of jewelry, Delfina Delettrez Fendi, who has reclaimed Gothic fashion for the incredibly rich.
