This week the Metropolitan Museum of Art unveils its new fashion exhibition, MANUS X MACHINA. We would like to introduce to you Flowen, a “Digitally Grown” jewelry brand based in Los Angeles, whose work will be presented at the exhibition. Flowen is inspired by the complexity of nature and grow their products from a precious metal powder transformed into separate pieces without byproducts, a technique akin to 3D printing, which are then assembled by artisans in Italy.
The new online jewelry shop Arguros is the brainchild of Karlo Steel, the former co-owner and mastermind behind the iconic New York menswear boutique Atelier, which played a major role in promoting the menswear avant-garde since its inception in 2002.
We would like to introduce to you TACET, a niche silver jewelry brand designed by Alexey Artemov in New York City. Alexey is also a musician and a producer, and he aims to translate his love of music into his jewelry. The label is now stocked in New York exclusively at Hotoveli.
We would like to announce our collaboration with Vestoj – the Platform for Critical Thinking on Fashion. Through an ongoing exchange of articles about recent fashion developments we will aim to delve deeper into the state of fashion and the fashion media today. In our first exchange we share reactions to a major piece published in T-Magazine of the New York Times. Stay tuned for the response from Vestoj to the article below.
It’s jewelry week at StyleZeitgeist, and today we would like to introduce you to MORATORIUM STUDIO, an independent silver and fine jewelry brand designed by Jeanette Lai in New York City.

We are equally enamored with her deceptively simple silver jewelry that also comes in blackened silver, and her fine, diamond encrusted creations. Actually, we liked it so much that we decided to offer a selection of MORATORIUM for sale on our e-commerce website, OtherFashion (other pieces are available by request). All jewelry is made to order in New York City.
