Evocative details, rich and vibrant colors and a consummately feminine mood make the 2011/12 Fall-Winter Accessories collection an unforgettable journey into Bulgari’s seductive Mediterranean Eden.
The collection spotlights the sensory and cultural values of the Bulgari heritage through the infinite range of colors and symbols of an enchanted Mediterranean Eden, there to be discovered in all its engaging beauty and figurative power.
The splendors of the Mare Nostrum are woven like a braid of nature and culture in an elegant and captivating play of style whose emblematic signs are the lion and the serpent, omnipresent in the myths and legends of the ancient Mediterranean civilizations, like the use of antique coins, witnesses of the Hellenic origins of Bulgari, grafted in Rome.
Nature transmits its colorful brushstrokes to the finest leathers, evoking the magical play of light on the feathers of celestial birds, or the sun that caresses lush landscapes, reflected in a sea whose timeless mystery still communicates with us. The light is saturated with the deepest blue and the boldest red, while the azure sky is streaked with pink. The sandy tones of the coast are darkened by the earthen browns of the Mediterranean inland; a blue topaz is illuminated by golden sunshine that sparkles off the gray slate cliffs and the millennia-old sculptures, the bases of which are wrapped in the rich vegetation of an imaginary Eden.
Karung skin in warm tones of red, green and amber is the star of the collection, appearing in all the principal models of the new season. Peacock green and topaz blue color the leather of the Leoni day bags and enliven the exquisite floral prints of the new line of foulards and stoles. Seductive femininity finds expression in the pale pink satin of the Leoni clutches and the Monete evening bags, elegantly harmonized with the slate gray of the new models of the Rossellini handbag. Gold and bronze for the evening complete the palette.
Subtle retro touches carry the timeless taste and elegance of Bulgari into the discreet and calibrated proposals of the upcoming season. The masterful craftsmanship of the leather and the embroidery is combined with brilliant textures and metallic finishes. Finely enameled serpentine heads decorated with malachite eyes become oversized jewel-closures. Chains are embellished with ancient coins, or echo the sinuous physiognomy of a snake.
Accessories designed for a refined, cultured woman, attentive to detail, who likes to wear icons of style.
