BULGARI X CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS: MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

Though Bulgari started as a jewellery company, and Central Saint Martins as an art college, they’ve found a middle way: a bag design collaboration. Surprisingly, it’s not a handful of highly praised alumni (the list is long) who were approached to participate, but a select crop of three recent fashion graduates: Icelandic Anita Hirlekar (MA Fashion 2014), British Natasha Somerville (BA Womenswear 2013) and American Connie Lim (Fashion Design with Marketing 2013). Why? To get a fresh approach on Bulgari’s existing codes: Monete, Serpenti and Bvlgari Bvlgari, by the means of ‘disrupting’ these. How? A six week competition style project, going from briefing to designing, visiting Bulgari’s Atelier, making prototypes, and giving presentations during endless Skype conversations. And so, ‘redefined luxury bags’ have come into existence.
