Last night, Bulgari and special guest Liv Tyler hosted an exclusive cocktail event at the Roman Maison’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue.
The event took place at the Bulgari & Rome Eternal Inspiration exhibit space, located on the second floor of the flagship store. At the exhibit space, there were 40 different heritage jewelry pieces illustrated how the Eternal City’s history, architecture, monuments and sculptures inspire Bulgari’s iconic designs in unexpected ways. In addition, event-goers swooned over Roman antiquities such as marble portrait busts and rare coins, which were on display alongside the one-of-a-kind archive collection. While guests observed the many pieces, tunes were provided by DJ Harley Viera-Newton.
Highlights of the presentation includes a two-tone gold necklace with five Roman Imperial silver alloy coins, a radiant sautior in gold with emerald, rubies and diamonds interpreting the octagonal ceiling of the Palazzo della Rovere in 1969, as well as a bib necklace representing Via Appian paved with multicolor sapphires and diamonds.
Notable guests included Alexa Chung, Harley Viera-Newton, Giovanna Battaglia, Jessica Hart, Alessandra Neidich, Cleo Wade, Indre Rockefeller, Lily Kwong, Zani Gugelmann, and Lauren Remington Platt.
Following the cocktail reception, Tyler as well as aforementioned guests joined Daniel Paltridge, Bulgari President of North America, at a private Roman Bacchanal dinner at the historical James B. Duke House off of Fifth Avenue.
The Bulgari & Rome Eternal Inspiration exhibit is open to the public through Nov. 22.
