Eccentric objects veiling a minimal mood, the interplay of light reveals abstract contours and metal castings made to wear as real artworks. The exploration of form and a strong passion for modern art have always inspired designer Osanna Visconti di Modrone, who has created the capsule collection Chiodo exclusively for yoox.com. The collection, entirely handcrafted in Italy, consists of 13 pieces (necklaces, earrings and bracelets) all inspired by the form of the Chiodo (nail)–a recurrent motif in history and fashion, representing the perfect alliance between contemporary simplicity and nonconformist sophistication. Ever since the bronze age the nail has had a dual significance; on one hand functional, on the other, symbolic. Throughout the centuries, this elemental shape has been adopted by various subcultures and is a constant source of inspiration for new trends. Opposites not only attract: in this case, they become one. Chic nature and punk rebellion blend together into the marvelous metals of these wearable sculptures, chosen by the world’s most discerning women.
