Fashion Inspiration: Mariella Pilato ‘A Constructed State of Mind’ and mythological inspirations.

Mariella Pilato _ A Constructed State of Mind _ Campaign(1)_1

The mythological influences along with the allegorical personifications infuse with the ancient art inclinations in semi-precious metals and precious stones. The whispered stories of cultural heritage behind the Mariella Pilato‘s  ‘A Constructed State of Mind‘ look like they are enclosed in the geometrical shapes made of sterling silver.

The jewellery line is the mixture of numerous inspirations of theater and architecture initially based in youthful dreams of the artist and later generated in adult life. With every handcrafted piece Pilato renders her passion into the refined accessories composed of silver, an implication of gun metal, rocky crystals and an aggregate of agate.  The Balian based artist explains that the collection “tells the story of her cultural heritage, reflecting good taste and innovation while her vision recalls traditions with a sensitive trend toward a joyful fashion and modernity”.

The nose ring was presented for the first time during the Menswear fashion show for Fall 2012. It was a well-directed prelude depicting the nose element on minotaur – inspired men silhouettes as well as the heroine accents in the mannish line. A strong factor of tribalism was translated into our times with the edgy elegance and mythological perception of power merging sporty styles with masculine skirts and urbane tailoring.

The nostril ring presented in both collections resembles the face decoration of Ancient civilizations including the tribes of Mayas, Incas and Aztecs as the attribute of power and cruel attitude. The nose ring managed to have a long legacy in the tribal culture of Native Americans tribes, India and Tibet as well.  What was intended to be a fierce appearance in the primeval, times nowadays can be regarded as a smart way to enhance the high-fashion performance.  This is clearly visible in the magazine editorials and covers how the fashion visuals are enhanced with the nostril rings from Givenchy depicting a new exquisite definition of tribal refinement.
