A collision of color and cultures. Bvlgari’s High Jewelry and Heritage Collection joined forces with @marykatrantzou for her S/S 20 show, drawing on the immense influence of both the Greek and Roman empires. Creative Director of Bvlgari Jewelry @lucia_silvestri and Katrantzou worked closely to amplify each of her designs by pairing them with one-of-a-kind pieces from our archive. With Bvlgari’s infamous eye for colour and Katrantzou’s flair for the romantic, this was a meeting of creative powerhouses. Another of the collaboration’s unique moments saw the ancient Temple of Poseidon transformed into a catwalk for the first time in history. . . . ? @germanlarkin #Bvlgari #BvlgariJewelry #HighJewelry #marykatrantzou #TributoAllaBellezza
