On a chilly day in late December, the Ariva creative team assembled in Philadelphia to shoot the new Rittenhouse capsule collection. On location in Rittenhouse Square and at Dante & Luigi’s Italian restaurant in South Philadelphia, photographer Derek Fahsbender captured model Mel wearing Rittenhouse pieces in sterling silver woven mesh, finished in rhodium and rose gold plating.
Using the charm of the surroundings as both inspiration and backdrop, the team layered Mel in woven Rittenhouse bangles mixed with textured bangles from Ariva’s Silk collection. With her natural beauty, Mel displays the easy elegance of Rittenhouse. Check back to see more images of Mel and behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot!
