Plastic spikes made out of printed clear film joined by acrylic discs and tiny silver rings make up the "personal aura" of Maiko Tekada's millinery collection, Atmospheric Reentry. The designer wishes to incorporate in the collection the environment such as the wind or gravity and "create an experience of wonder and bewilderment for the adorned"- MT. To put it in another way, the wearer must be aware of the surroundings through the pieces he wears. Light and darkness play a role as well as the jewelry lights up when dark.
Millinery will never be the same..

The jewelry collection "Digital Noise" by Jasmina Jovy has it's basis on digital designing techniques such as generative design, direct printing on metal and computerized weaving looms.
Because of the patterns that arw generated on a large-scale and then printed on metal chains, the illusion of noise is created visually when moving while worn.
At the core of the concept lies the idea of chaos, created by algorithm. The entire collection is based on a method called generative design. The structure is no longer designed, a series of processes are programmed through parametric modeling to generate shape, vvolume and eventually structure. Repetitiveness is what creates the noise, alongside body movement.
"My intention was to work with the greatest possible coincidence. With the generative design tool I was able to deposit forms which grow in the chaos as fast as possible." Thus, by using laser-trimming, casting resins, printing and synthetic weaving, clear and graphic shapes derived from traditional jewellery bringing to life a new, innovative design concept.
