We are happy to be featured in the book "Glass Jewels. From Prehistory to the III Millennium", the latest publication by Bianca Cappello, expert, friend and historian of jewelery and Augusto Panini.
A pleasant excursus that re-proposes the history of the jewel as an artistic and decorative artefact, in its passage from the "magic" of the transformation from grains of sand into transparent glass to the exploration of modern processing techniques, ennobled by expertise, skills and above all from the creativity of the costume jewelery craftsmen.

Collaborating with Jean Paul Gaultier has always been stimulating and engaging, even more exciting in this last spectacular fashion show.
Au revoir Jean Paul!
We are present in the latest HP France publication dedicated to artists and creators: we opened the doors of our Atelier and had a chat with the talented Kaori Hanaoka to talk about inspirations, nature and creative processes.
Photos and articles by Kaori Hanaoka.
It is always a great satisfaction to have the opportunity to collaborate with the big names of the fashion system. We thank Guy Laroche for having involved us in the realization of the last show for the presentation of his collection SS20.
On the occasion of the exhibition "L'âge d'or de la peinture anglaise. De Reynolds à Turner" at the Musée du Luxembourg, from 11 September to 16 February, Stefano Poletti created a capsule collection ad hoc inspired by the painting "The Thames near Marble Hill, Twickenham "by the master Richard Wilson (1792).
The collection creates a contemporary dialogue between the sinuous lines of the jewels and the painter's drawings, framing some salient elements of the English landscape with dynamic shapes,creating small precious windows that open onto the beauty of pure art itself.

"Le Temps Suspendu" is our latest project for LUMINE, the well known fashion shopping centers located in main train stations centering on Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Saitama, popular spots that feature the latest trends and fashions representative of Japan.
In a world that is increasingly in a hurry linked to virtuality and the immaterial, taking time to dedicate to yourself and enjoying calm is becoming a luxury.
Through “Le Temps Suspendu” we try to re-connect people to the reality, the contemplation and the pretty little things of everyday, enjoying the slow-living with our windows set up and the photographies by Pierre Chancy.
Live from our Atelier in Paris: here a preview of the presentation of our AW 19 - 20 as well as the new collections of our friend Colomba Leddi.

Brilliant: The Story of Atelier Swarovski
We are so proud to have been mentioned in "Brilliant: the story of Atelier Swarovski", the latest book by Swarovski and Condé Nast to celebrate a decade of creativity, spirit of collaboration and innovation!
Launched in 2007 by Nadja Swarovski, Atelier Swarovski is is a certified member of the Responsible Jewellery Council and an innovative business which collaborates with high-profile and cutting-edge designers.
Stefano Poletti had a creative partnership with Atelier Swarovski in 2013 and designed a collection inspired by the world of nature and tropical vegetation.
One of the most appreciated piece above all was the Clerodendrum cuff, where the beauty of crystals combines with the sparkling of light to create a unique effect of interaction with the incredible perfection of their cut.
The collection had a great success and some of its pieces are now considered very rare and "iconic" by the jewel collectors and experts.

The Jewel in the Fashion System

"The Jewel in the Fashion System" - Skira Editore.
"Corals" at Ginza Six
On April 20th, at the inauguration of "GINZA SIX", the new fashion mall built in the heart of Tokyo, Stefano Poletti presented "CORALS", his latest project for the window fitting of HPFrance.
The creative soul of the artist has uniquely represented the eclectic nature of "GINZA SIX", a strategic area for fashion business thanks to its 241 world-renowned brands located on 47,000 square meters of the complex, interpreting the sense of loss, wealth and diversity of one of the more representative Japanese districts for integration, renewal and identity.
The idea of “CORALS” is born from a constant dialogue between innovation and recovery of the cultural tradition, with a strong reference to the Dina collection and the coral candlestick. The showcase is like a large forest made of standing corals coming from their natural habitat, the sea, to the urban jungle of the metropolis, defining a singular space where visitors can get lost and find themselves.
During his lecture at the Venice School of Fine Arts for the course in Jewelry Design Stefano Poletti has shown his career as a creative since the 80’s till today.
At the end of his speech he has reviewed a series of prototypes made by the students giving some valuable advice and suggestions showing his personal point of view.
Stefano Poletti celebrates its first thirty years of creativity with a series of exclusive exhibitions in four different places in Japan: an accurate selection of 46 collections created since 1986 to present the most significant moments of its production, costantly seeking new and different materials.
On this tour are on display more than 200 jewelry to witness the originality and imagination with which this artist continues to interpret his love for nature with lightness, elegance and poetry.
