Antonini’s secular birthday celebrated with the Cento100 collection in gold and diamonds ♦ ︎
To have a hundred years and not to feel them. The recipe for longevity is simple: do not stop, change, but without changing your nature. How you do it? Ask Antonini, Maison of Milan, who has turned off the hundred candles in lightness. But he wanted to emphasize the importance of the finish line with a collection. You guessed it: the collection is called Cento100, written in letters and in number. “It is also a way to localize the collection in the various countries in which we are present”, explains the designer, Sergio Antonini. “The number, in fact, is pronounced differently according to the language. For example, the Americans say Cento-one hundred, the French Cento-cent and so on. ” Antonini, however, also uses to link the collections to Italian locations, such as Syracuse, Matera, Etna. And Cento is, in fact, also the name of a small town in Emilia Romagna, with a famous portico. Also from this point of view, in short, tradition is respected
Cento100 is a ready-to-wear collection in shiny gold and diamonds, with soft and sinuous shaped jewels.
Forms reminiscent of those of Anniversary, one of the most successful collections in the recent history of the brand, designed in 2009 for the birthday number 90. The Cento100 collection is very wide, includes many variations. Chains, rings and earrings are offered in simple yellow or white gold, or with pavé and diamonds set at 45 degrees in color F. A curiosity: the outer back of the shank of the rings has a small flat surface that allows the jewel to remain straight when it is laid, like a flower.
