Milan is the epicenter of fashion, setting the tone for what’s haute and what’s not. Twice every year, a week is set aside for the ultimate festival of high fashion.
I was fortunate enough to have caught the latest Milan Fashion Week, and watched the city’s cobblestoned streets turn into veritable catwalks, filled with VIPs and fashion lovers from all over the globe. As the perfectly coiffed heads of the attendees turned this way and that so not to miss a single designer moment, I caught glimpses of gleaming sculpted golden earrings— not delicate and thin— but bold and sculpted with a hint of an attitude.
I immediately asked Daniele, our Italian maestro, to replicate this look hot off the Milan catwalk. Behold the stunning results. Their unique sculpted, textured effect used to be unachievable with more traditional methods, however Daniele knows a group of craftsmen that have mastered a metalworking technique that makes the impossible, possible.
The details are complex, but let’s just say these artisans have harnessed the power of electricity to create high-end earrings at a price so affordable it’s downright shocking.
