The buzz surrounding The Costume Institute's Spring 2016 exhibition, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, has us inspired, as much of our curated jewelry collection walks the line between old-world craftsmanship and modern, new-age edge. The exhibit, and its celeb-studded Met Gala, explores how designers reconcile the handmade (manus) and the machine-made (machina) in the creative process. Featuring works from Karl Lagerfeld, Sarah Burton, Issey Miyake and more, the collection takes on the new versus old dichotomy — high-tech materials applied with painstakingly handcrafted methods, or classic techniques, like embroidery, printed with machinery, etc. It is an interesting and exciting time in design where modern mixes with tried-and-true past. Here are some of our favorite pieces that fit right in with the theme.
