10 Years of Saving the Children with Bvlgari

Discover Bvlgari’s Ramadan edit here.

This year was not only about the 20th anniversary of B.zero1 for Bvlgari, as the house is also celebrating 10 years of partnership with Save the Children. It all started in 2009, when Bvlgari commemorated its 125th anniversary by committing to a better future. With this in mind, the journey with Save the Children debuted to help over 1.5 million children make their dreams come true through the power of education. 

In fact, this is a joint anniversary, as Save the Children is also celebrating its 100th anniversary and to make the celebration even more special, Bvlgari unveiled – in addition to the New Give Hope campaign – a new pendant in sterling silver and onyx inspired by the iconic BVLGARI-BVLGARI collection. Reimagining one of the Maison’s most distinctive designs, a hard stone disk is encircled by the bold double logo and topped by a precious red ruby. On its back, it unveils the charity’s emblem, as well as its promising and hopeful message.

This new piece, which celebrates Bvlgari’s commitment to this cause and the message carried by this NGO, joins the custom-made jewelry collection that now counts three silver and black ceramic creations inspired by B.zero1’s design: a ring, a bracelet and a pendant. Are you wondering how you can make a difference? We’ll tell you all about it. By simply buying any piece of the Bvlgari Save the Children collection, 100$ of your purchase will go to the charity.

This is not all, as Bvlgari took over the Bvlgari Resort in Dubai on May 1st to celebrate the launch of its first local campaign for Save the Children. Shot by celebrity photographer Rankin who’s renowned for his creative fearlessness, the campaign stars a series of local celebrities, influencers and public figures, which include Lebanese actress Nadine Nassib Njeim, Tunisian actress Dorra Zarrouk, Saudi actress and singer Aseel Omran, Egyptian actress Tara Emad, Lebanese actress Aimée Sayah, Tunisian model Rym Saidi and her husband, Lebanese TV host Wissam Breidy, Lebanese-Iranian TV figure Diala Makki, Saudi writer Abdullah Jumah, British Entrepreneur Louise Nichol, Bahraini entrepreneur Dana Al Khalifa, Saudi designer Alanoud Badr and Saudi entrepreneur Marriam Mossalli.

Celebrate Your Father on His Day with a Fragrance

The day that celebrates fathers is fast approaching and the least you can do to celebrate yours and all that he’s done for you throughout your life is offer him a fragrance that most fits his character.

First of all, you should know which fragrance your father usually wears and decide whether to get him a day perfume or one that he’s going to wear to special evening occasions. While the first should always be based on his casual taste, the second should reflect unparalleled elegance paired with a unique sophisticated feel.

For the first option, you can choose fragrances with light, refreshing notes that reflect the summer spirit and the lightness required for a fresh look fit for hot weather. When it comes to black-tie events and special occasions, think of something that exudes luxury through warm woody notes and precious ingredients such as oud, amber and musk. The age also plays a big role in this equation, as younger dads would rather go for modern scents, while older ones prefer classics.

With all this information in mind, we decided to help you choose the perfect olfactory gift for your father by carefully narrowing down a list of the best and newest perfumes available out there. Check them out!

CHANEL, Bleu de CHANEL
Hermès Parfums, Eau de Citron Noir

Warm Gold Tones Take Over… the High Jewelry Way

When you’re tanned and glowing, all you think about is ways to highlight the beautiful color of your skin. This doesn’t only mean choosing summer attires that perfectly complement your sun-kissed complexion, but also the jewelry and accessories you wear.

Speaking of jewelry, what about the pieces you wear on special and fancy occasions? Well, your outfit certainly calls for a high jewelry piece that helps you shine like a star wherever you are. Personally, I prefer to go for yellow or pink gold jewelry pieces when I get tanned, because there is a certain charm in warm gold tones that makes you look so glamorous. Don’t you agree?

Luckily for us, lately the world of jewelry brought to light many exquisite jewelry pieces made of yellow and pink gold – breaking that white gold-diamonds and precious stones equation. Of course, there are still some classics for the ladies who favor this style, but we can’t let the statement yellow and pink gold pieces go unnoticed.

Set with diamonds, colorful gems or black and white hard stones, the creations that we’ve narrowed down for you will let you fall under their spell from the very first glance!

LVMH Announces First Watch Exhibition in Dubai

Watch enthusiasts, get ready to welcome a new watch exhibition in Dubai! January 2020 will be the month that will witness the first LVMH Swiss Watch Manufactures exhibition in the city as announced each of Stéphane Bianchi – President of the LVMH Watch Division, and Jean-Christophe Babin – President of the Bvlgari Group.

Set to take place in Dubai Bvlgari Hotel this coming January, the event will include a list of 4 watch brands – which are Bvlgari, Tag Heuer, Zenith and Hublot – and will introduce you to each brand’s watchmaking news for 2020.

“In between Geneva in January and Basel in March, we have had in the recent years two major product presentations in the first quarter. This early discovery of our strategies, news and novelties has allowed our media and retail partners to better plan the year ahead and as such we have decided on this set up for 2020 to balance the scheduling of the other events,” stated Jean-Christophe Babin.

On another note, Stéphane Bianchi explains: “We remain very supportive and loyal to Baselworld and the Swiss watchmaking industry. However, it was not possible for us to go 13 months without a global presentation of our products and brands. This additional event further confirms the LVMH commitment to the strategic and profitable watch category.”

Venice Welcomes Dior’s Latest High Jewelry Collection, “Gem Dior”

Every year, Dior captivates us with a new high jewelry collection that captures the house’s most cherished values. However this year, the jewelry world is celebrating a special occasion: 20 years of Dior Joaillerie. Fit for the legendary French house and its extensive history, “Gem Dior” high jewelry collection is the latest marvel by Victoire de Castellane, writing history by being the largest high jewelry collection the house has ever witnessed.

This chromatic fairytale started last month in the heart of Venice through the Tiepolo Ball, in which Dior celebrated the cultures and savoir-faire of France and Italy. This actually takes us back in time to Charles de Beistegui’s legendary “Ball of the Century” at Palazzo Labia, for which Monsieur Dior designed the costumes alongside Salvador Dalí in 1951. Once again, this place opens a new chapter in the history of the house and welcomes the 38 exquisite parures of the new Gem Dior collection.

Presented in a fashion show that exuded elegance and sophistication, the high jewelry pieces were accompanied by 19 exclusive ball gowns created by Maria Grazia Chiuri – making the 20th anniversary of Dior Joaillerie as unique as it could ever be. With no less than 99 pieces that form 38 swooning sets, Gem Dior is the most extensive high jewelry collection presented by Dior to date. Exploring unprecedented harmonies and subtle color gradations, the pieces stand out by the gemstones that look like they randomly settle on the skin – presenting a raw yet studied irregularity that highlights the expertise of Dior in high jewelry-making.
