The Spring Summer 2014 collection, “Angleria”, is inspired by an ancient village “Angera” located on the eastern shore of Lago Maggiore. In this place stands a medieval castle, the symbol of the city, where Maiden-Art also opened a few months ago its first flagship store. “Angleria” comes from the desire to blend harmonious lights, colors and shapes of a “dreaming” landscape with sparkling jewels, rich of intricate and luminescent details, coming from multi-colored crystals and precious stones, unique and never the same. Timeless and contemporary jewels, which plays with the preciousness of materials and the simplicity of varying shapes, like to discover the corners of this enchanted and mysterious place. Each jewel contains a story and a name stolen from the narrow streets of the village, which seem to protect and hide a fragile and a laughing soul at the same time. The collection expresses space’s shapes and colors that radiates a beauty untouched by time.
