BULGARI TEAMS UP WITH CASABLANCA
Casablanca, the brand that mixes the essence of après-sport with the luxury aesthetics of the Mediterranean, delivers an
exclusive interpretation of the mythical Bulgari Serpenti icon through a playful and ultra-chic accessories capsule collection.
Marked by a mesmerizing collision of Roman ease, sporty spirit and colorful prints, the collaboration is part of Bulgari’s
ongoing collaborative series “Serpenti Through the Eyes Of”, which, since 2017, has captured the endless metamorphosis of the Bulgari snake through the bold visions of different talented designers.
“With Bulgari we share the same love and respect for timeless codes and the ambition to interpret them in new ways: this is the prism we have played with on this collaboration. The collection is both modern and classic at the same time. Serpenti has a thousand-year old iconography behind it and we wanted to bring it back once more but in a modern way, playing with its aesthetic features.” explained the French-Moroccan Creative Director and Founder of Casablanca Charaf Tajer.
Divided into two launches, the 7-piece collection leads through Casablanca’s main worlds of inspiration namely sport with the Après Tennis Story and artistic heritage with the Mosaic Story.
Inspired by classic tennis styles and graphic design elements, for the first Story Casablanca elevates après sport looks playing on the iconic contrast between a white background and green accents. The unique mix of white perforated leather, gold plated hardware and unprecedented wood handles immediately refers to the equipment, the mood, colors, details, the looks and the elegant aesthetics from the tennis world.
The theme comes to life in the classic Serpenti Forever shape with the refined color contrast running through every detail of the piece, from the white and green Calf Leather body to the emblematic snakehead closure. To be carried by hand with the distinctive and detachable wood handle or crossbody with the removable leather strap, the bag exudes a unique sense of ease, perfect to enjoy every moment of the day.
A distinctive fusion between luxury, leisurewear and jewellery DNA is encapsulated by the fancy Jewellery Box, a sculptural bag inspired by a silver box of the ‘20s, part of the Bulgari Heritage Collection. In this special edition, its distinctive top conjuring the multiple facets of a precious gemstone, is highlighted in green Calf Leather, while the unmistakable zip pullers combine the iconic snakehead charm.
