Organic grace and industrial sheen react in Chiara Scarpitti’s jewelry brand, Reaction Poetique. To create these futuristic but eminently wearable pieces, the Italian designer uses happily glitterless materials like inkjet-printed silk organza, steel, Plexiglass, and oxidized silver. What’s more, Reaction Poetique’s philosphy says the jewelry’s geometric themes are a nod to ancient myths and magic, and that Scarpitti aims to recreate that aura of mystery with her designs. Sounds like some pretty mystical—but stylish—stuff.
