DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Extravaganza

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Collier

INSPIRATION:
The Extravaganza collier is a modern interpretation of the ancient ruffs used primarily in the XVI and XVII centuries. I thought to transform those decorations for clothes in a piece of jewellery. I was especially inspired by the old portrait paintings where you can see different kind of this ruffs made with a lot of precious details. My intention was to simplify those ruffs to create an elegant high fashion jewel using a completely new and contemporary material and production method.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
An elegant collier characterized by a contemporary and modern design. A sophisticated effect that gives elegance to the wearer, using black or white allows a multiplicity of combinations with a modern and pure design. A one-piece necklace, flexible and light. A non-precious material but with an high fashion impressive design that makes this collier not just a jewel but a body ornament, an object that will become part of your mood, of your personality.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This object will be an easy to wear neck piece but with an high fashion style and mood. It will be perfect is combined with new experimental high fashion clothes. It can be evolved and improved by using different materials and colours. The wearer of this collier must feel its regal and elegant distinction.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started on January 2013 in Enschede. A first prototype of the combined armband was showed for the first time at the Rapid 2013 3d print fair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Collier and armband will be also showed during the 3D PrintShow in London and Paris on November 2013.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This necklace is made using 3d printing technology, the piece is built in one piece layer by layer. The first prototype was printed in nylon (polyamide) but to allow more flexibility, especially when it have to be worn, I'm now testing e new 3d printed rubber-like material that it was already used to produce high fashion clothes.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Review of ancient paintings and contemporary interpretation of ruffs in fashion design. Analysis of the possible connections between jewellery, body ornament and clothe decorations. My research is focused to find new links between jewellery and fashion design.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge was to design a neck piece that was able to have a regal and elegant mood as the ancient ruffs but with a new modern and contemporary design. Also very important is to use the right material, that it needs to be flexible and light.
