NET-A-PORTER partnered with V&A and launched a jewelry collection in celebration of The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014 exhibition. I drooled over this Missoni Necklace in the gift shop and was so excited to find out that the collection is offered online! Dolce & Gabbana, Etro, Marni, Missoni and Moschino have produced styles for the 22-strong jewelry lineup. Taking inspiration from their extensive archives – “Each designer has created a relevant piece for the jewelry capsule, which perfectly represents the craftsmanship and heritage of the brand,” says NET-A-PORTER.COM’s Buying Manager Sasha Sarokin.
While I can’t tell you to go visit this exhibition because it is now closed, I can spread some good news of upcoming exhibitions at V&A! For those of you who completely adored the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at The Met a few years ago, you’re in luck. Savage Beauty is coming to the V&A 14 March – 19 July 2015. Purchase tickets here. I think I will need to plan a trip around McQueen’s exhibit as it was one of my all time favorites. Seeing it once was not enough. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
P.S. If this fashion post was a bit up your alley, check out my interview with shoe designer, Sarah Flint! Her exquisitely designed shoes are all Made in Italy! I have a sneaky suspicion that Miss Sarah Flint’s footwear will someday be featured at a museum exhibition showcasing the best of American designers.
