Summary

This stunning volume accompanies a major exhibition surveying the history behind the iconic jewelry company. Over 350 jewels are paired with haute couture from eminent fashion houses.

This sumptuous book celebrates not just the evolution of Bvlgari's style through more than one hundred years, but also its ability to inspire the modern woman through the ages. Jewels from Bvlgari's heritage collection are matched with one hundred haute couture garments of the same time period from the most illustrious fashion houses, including Chanel, Dior, Prada, Versace, Fendi, Pucci, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, and more.

The volume also includes exclusive essays by industry experts and noted historians that explore the history of the Bulgari family starting with the founder, Sotirio Bulgari, who immigrated to Italy from the Balkans in the late nineteenth century. The family's close relationships with members of the international elite are also examined. Many of the world's most famous women have been Bvlgari clients, including Ingrid Bergman, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, and Anita Ekberg. Pieces once owned by Elizabeth Taylor are included in the book, and many of the jewels featured have never been previously exhibited.
