Creator Michele Ponce has tapped into a new jewelry design that is taking the youth accessory markets by storm with the label Pretti Vacant. Premiering at the Pool trade show, which is known for showcasing up-and-coming designers and youth trends and pulling attention away from it’s big-sister show, Magic, Ponce’s jewelry had designers, buyers, and admirers from Japan, America, and Europe, coming by to see the latest cutting edge accessory concept. Pretti Vacant produces necklaces made of cut plastic pieces with shapes such as unicorns, eagles, crowns, lightening, scissors, crossed guns, and leaves. Some have multiple hinges whereby owners can mix and match color schemes, others are simple bold statements in jewelry. The electro-clash appeal is part of the leading edge trend and evolution of punk that’s taking shape in core markets across America as punk moves more screamo and metal-core spreads out.
Pretti Vacant actually first appeared on this summer’s Warped Tour with a few pieces for sale in the Girl’s Garage area of the festival. Their popularity has spread among young girls and guys craving for an original Pretti Vacant piece of artwork, elevating the brand to actually showcase at Pool.
As Ponce describes her work, Pretti Vacant accessories are taking over dressers world-wide. From pin-up dolls to pin-up punks, Pretti Vacant might be your accessory to kill these looks with.
