For their first collaboration with a fashion designer, Bulgari tapped the talent of Britain’s Matthew Williamson, employing his expertise to develop a capsule collection of handbags that would deliver the Bulgari message through a whole new language.

Based on some of the nearly neon shades of jewels that Williamson found while scouring Bulgari’s vintage jewelry archives, the collection plays off of a palette of sapphire blue, rubellite pink and emerald green. The bags, which have been dubbed such names as Sapphire Galaxy, Crystal Butterfly and Emerald Palm were projected high in the sky of the Simon Costin-designed event. Costin transformed the Bulgari Hotel’s garden into what could best be described as a jungle fantasy; if said jungle was set within the confines of a glittering kaleidoscope.
