As the crowds make their way to the V&A's stupendous Glamour of Italian fashion exhibition, there's a tangible sense of La Dolce Vita running through stylish circles. Thanks to the hype, the great designers of this country's past and present are more visible than ever and a new wave also shows great promise and industry-wide popularity. Think Stella Jean, Fausto Puglisi, Paula Cademartori and MSGM. As for the established syndicate for S/S’14 the big guns are on a roll - Moschino's buzzing with Jeremy Scott at the helm, Prada's stunning homage to women has been endlessly documented, Dolce's idea of summer dressing is the last word in sexy. It's a hot moment for this part of the med.

Making sure they don't miss a sartorial trick, those clever people at Net-A-Porter have collaborated with the museum to sign up a roll call of top fashion houses to create a capsule collection of jewellery - after all, where would a glamorous señora be without her bling?

True to form and delving into the archives, Moschino's offering is gaudy, ultra-gold and riffing on the house namesake logo, Dolce’s vintage-look trinkets are in place, Etro have created decadent art-deco styles and Marni’s signature plastic florals are blooming. Buy any one of these 22 pieces and 10 per cent gets donated to the V&A.
