Bulgari jewels take the runway at Emilio Pucci’s Milan Fashion Week show

At the recently concluded Milan Fashion Week, two Italian luxury powerhouses joined forces for a fashion show replete with bold geometric prints, flamboyant colours, and no-holds-barred glamour.

The labels in question? Bulgari and Emilio Pucci, which paired their jewellery and apparel respectively, for a runway outing to remember at Pucci’s Fall/Winter 2018 show.

Pucci looked to the 1950s and screen siren Marilyn Monroe for inspiration, sending out skirts and dresses emblazoned with curlicue patterns, and eye-catching puffer jackets.

But it was really Bulgari’s spectacular ’70s-style jewellery that added the cherry on top. One particularly memorable jewel was a gold sautoir in gold with chunky carnelian pieces studded with turquoise beads and diamonds, and linked together by smaller loops of gold and carnelian. It was the perfect statement accessory that complemented Pucci’s ensemble of a nude-coloured dress with a plunging necklace.

Bulgari’s gold and carnelian sautoir is the statement jewel you need right now.

Another jewel that left the audience star-struck, was this pair of Star Spangled Banner earrings from 1975, named after — of course — the US national anthem. Fashioned in gold, they featured star and stripe motifs set with coral and lapis lazuli, and covered with brilliant-cut diamonds.

The earrings were spotted on model Adesuwa Aighewi, who looked regal as she strutted out in a black puffer jacket and vibrantly hued skirt.

The other exquisite Bulgari jewels seen on the runway included a 1971 gold necklace with amethysts, diamonds and green enamel (see main image), as well as a pair of pink gold and coral drop earrings mounted with jadeite, round brilliant-cut diamonds, and pavé diamonds.

Here’s to hoping this showcase with Pucci marks the start of more exciting collaborations for Bulgari. We can’t wait to see what the Italian Maison has next in its pipeline.
