or when NYC comes to Milano.
Maily Zegna hosted a trunk show of Laudomia Piccolomini's jewelry in her beautiful apartment in the center of Milan. Maily has as much style as the surname she bears and is often called upon by her friends to decorate their Christmas trees, arrange flowers or help with anything that is creative. Laudomia's story begins about four or five Christmases ago when she wanted to give her mother a very, very special present. She found some magnificent stones and made a necklace, but when her mother put the necklace on all the stones fell to the floor. Discouraged, she puts them away for six months and then had the idea of stringing them back together with copper wire, replaced today by 18 karat gold wire. This is the beginning of her one of a kind, precious and semi-precious stone jewelry collection which is sold at all the Barney stores as well as to celebrities like Nicole Kidman and Mary Jane Blige. It is her love for color and her good eye for taste and proportion that makes her jewelry unique.
