Live webinar - March 22nd 2021 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm CET
From the analysis of the contemporary scene it is possible to identify trajectories, emerging themes that define aesthetic connotations, inspiration for companies and designers in the sector.
The digital talk, organised by Homi Fashion&Jewels in collaboration with Poli.design, aims to present the trends for jewellery for the next two years, in terms of aesthetic, shapes, materials and innovation.
After an introduction to the topic, the two macro-trends will be analysed: Dreamscapes and Hyper-Connection. Each trend covers inspirational mood boards, lifestyle boards describing the target consumer of reference and four micro-trends.
Lastly, the talk includes a moment of discussion with guests, professionals and experts in the sector, who will tell their point of view, offering a direct opinion on the contemporary landscape.
This session will be of interest to independent designers, companies and professionals working in the jewellery sector.

Co-Founder Maison 203
Maison 203 was created in 2011 as a result of the encounter of Orlando Fernandez Flores, of Venezuelan origin and with a solid design experience in Foscarini, with Lucia De Conti, a cosmopolitan graphic designer and great fashion enthusiast. The synthesis of their multicultural backgrounds generates Maison 203: an unprecedented point of view on contemporary jewellery, conceptual and decorative at the same time, where thought, through technology, is transformed into concrete matter. All of Orlando and Lucia’s jewels and fashion accessories are recognizable by their strong personality and strong aesthetic impact, inspired by suggestions from time to time geometric, natural, or linked to the languages of architecture and contemporary graphics. Voluminous and decorative shapes, or elegant and minimal shapes which, thanks to the realization through 3D printing, are extremely light and flexible, able to interact harmoniously with the body. The collections of the brand are the result of the continuous contamination of ideas between Orlando, Lucia and the designers called upon to collaborate: emerging studios, or established professionals in the panorama of Italian design, employed in very different design fields and for this reason able to donate to jewels and to the accessories of Maison 203 always new formulas of beauty and meanings.

He is the founder of the “Cosmo Petrone Group” distributor of the Vintage Bijoux Preziosi, Cartesia, Cosmo Petrone Bags and Mitò lines, as well as he worked as well at different projects involving designs for important Italian luxury and fashion brands. Following the visit to an artisan workshop in 1981 he became passionate and began as a self-taught artisan. Thanks to his resourcefulness he opens his first shop in the heart of Verona, making himself known for the refined designs distinguished by his Italian spirit with Neapolitan roots. After only a few years, thanks to the positive response to his vision of design with a precise and recognizable identity, he decides to undertake the path of large-scale distribution with the Vintage Bijoux brand, participating in international sector events such as Milan, Paris, New York, Hong Kong. Success is immediate and his collections are exported all over the world to the point that in some countries single-brand stores are opened with the “Cosmo Petrone” logo. The Design of CP is characterized by an exclusively manual, sustainable workmanship, refined in the forms and the details. The careful manual processing entirely designed and built in its own laboratory, the scrupulous observance of details, and the use of the most varied components, sometimes precious, make the CP unique and versatile on the international scene. The study, the stylistic strength and the experience gained have led in recent years to the need for an evolution of its business and design concept that has allowed the CP GROUP to embellish and complete the jewel lines with a look that varies at 360 degrees from bags to fashion accessories, laying solid foundations for a future corporate total-look.
