Saturno necklace on display at PALAZZO REALE in Milan for the exhibition “Fashion Jewelry” curated by Alba Cappellieri
The exhibition “Fashion Jewelry” will open tonight and it is promoted and produced by Comune di Milano-Cultura, Palazzo Reale and Homi, Salone degli Stili di Vita of Fiera Milano, and curated by Alba Cappellieri, professor of Jewelry and Accessory Design at Politecnico of Milan. A journey through aesthetic mirror of society: 500 jewels, from postwar period to nowadays, define the evolution of the costumes, the conquests and women’s ambitions, the style and technological progress. Scenery of this journey are Tapestries’ Halls of Palazzo Reale in Milan, from 8 to 20 November. Among the protagonists of this path there is Saturno necklace, designed by Federico Angi for .bijouets and realized with 3D printing technology.
The relationship between Jewel and Fashion, considered in its intersections with the costume, the manufacture and Italian beauty, is explored in pieces by designers, stylists and bijoux makers divided into three sections: “Jewels FOR Fashion”, dedicated to the main Italian bijoux manufacturers; “Jewels OF Fashion”, dedicated to designers and independent brands, with a focus on the creative processes; “Jewels WITH Fashion”, dedicated to the main designers and to the capability of jewel to interact with fashion. Three different ways of treating the jewel from the point of view of fashion, with inspirations and multidisciplinary influences that define the contribution of Italian bijoux in relationship with fashion.
“We don’t speak of Bijoux but therefore about Jewelry for Fashion – the organizers say – because the preciousness is not only the material, but also creativity, innovation and beauty.” This is shown by the 500 pieces on display, created by the most famous bijoux makers, by young design talent, from international fashion house and small craftsmen. There are also the great brand names, as historical landmarks of a style that changes and completes itself in every age with the most exclusive accessories.
