VANACCI LAUNCH CELESTIAL SOLARIS RANGE
SCENT RETAINING BRACELETS MADE FROM FUTURISTIC LOCKSTONE MATERIAL
A forward-thinking British men’s fashion brand is setting its sights on a brave new frontier this week with the launch of Solaris – a range of fragranced jewellery inspired by the furthest reaches of outer space. Designed by Vanacci, the celestial bracelet is the latest addition to the futuristic Lockstone range.
The high-tech meets high-altitude pairing means users can infuse their stylish, contemporary wristwear with their favourite fragrances thanks to the presence of Vanacci’s unique Lockstone material. It captures any scent with just a few sprays, retaining the aroma for up to seven times longer than simply wearing an eau du cologne directly on the skin.
Vanacci’s Solaris bracelet draws on the specific science of capillary action – where water molecules are drawn deep into the material, to migrate slowly back up to the surface through osmosis. It is then that the water evaporates, releasing the fragrance for a slow, sustained scent release. Sean Sykes, Vanacci Creative Director said, “Bringing the massive down to the microscopic scale, we’ve taken the planets and our home as inspiration for Solaris, paying homage to the greatest jewels we can see, giving them a home close to us and those around us in the form of discreet, minimal jewellery."
“As with the original Lockstone range, this naturally formed material has been under the microscope at our lab, where we’ve been able to harness micro-porous structures to create a revolutionary use of matter.” There are five designs in the Solaris range, each made from a suitably celestial material. The Solaris Black bracelet has Vanacci’s signature minimalist aesthetic, fusing the space age Lockstone polymer with timeless black agate stone at its core – a material born at the dawn of the solar system and found on earth in volcanic rock. The jet black, polished edges hint at the darkness of space, while retaining a modern, ultra wearable appeal.
There’s also Solaris Meteor, made from vesicular basalt, a key component of the earth’s oceanic crust, Solaris Nebula which features bright metallic crystals suspended in a semi-transparent glass matrix of manganese and Solaris IO, made from obsidian, a material formed in the chaotic seconds after a volcanic eruption. The quintet is rounded out by Solaris Aurora, forged from highly polished lapis lazuli stones with sparkling pyrite veins, a precious material that can trace its origins back to the 3rd millennium BC.
Each design features the patent-pending Lockstone technology, to harness and emphasise the wearer’s signature scent. Ryan Ward, Sales Overlord at Vanacci adds, “Solaris is the perfect addition to Lockstone, a patent pending material that draws fragrance in, slowly releasing the scent over a period of time. For the wearer, fragrances last longer with a single spray, giving expensive designer scents a longer life and an aroma which can be sustained far beyond a single day’s wear.”
