The ‘Gioielli alla Moda’ exhibition was hosted in Milan’s Palazzo Reale from November 8th to 20th, 2016. The event was promoted by the Comune di Milano-Culture, Homi, Salone degli Stili di Vita, Fiera Milano, and curated by Alba Cappellieri, jewelry and accessories design professor at Milan’s Politecnico, director of the Museo del Gioiello di Vicenza since 2014 and president Women Jewellery Association in Italy since 2015. Five hundred pieces, dating from post-World War II to the present, were divided into three categories. They included jewelers who designed for large brands, designers who created projects for independent brands, and fashion designers who created jewelry lines to accompany their own collections. Alba Cappellieri had an expert eye in choosing a diversified array of pieces, filled with unexpected and courageous selections that reflect creative freedom in the shapes and choice of materials. ‘Gioielli alla Moda’ reveals how jewelry can stimulate transgressive and playful design.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
