Garbage? Well, no, not really. See, L.A.–based brand Cast of Vices has gotten a rather solid rep for casting metal bangles in the mold of club bracelets, fashioning leather totes that look like plastic bodega bags, and creating all in a manner of tongue-in-chic accessories that look like the disposable debris of modern culture. Brooches that look like bugs? Love!
Well, now all of CoV's sharp, stylish, satirical jewelry, and totes are available online — the home of truly disposable culture — at their new e-commerce store. To whet your appetite and prep you for an online shopping spree, we're offering you a selection of our favorite pieces from their spring '12 collection. Dig in and then head on over, because while you'd never actually toss any of these into the trash, you should probably resign yourself to the fact that they won't be around forever.
