Bulgari B.zero1 Design Legend By Zaha Hadid

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: BULGARI

The iconic B.zero1’s unmistakable symmetrical circular lines and the two intersecting circles bearing the BVLGARI logo has been one of the house’s icons ever since its launch almost twenty years ago. Bearing a number of architectural elements inspired by Rome’s famous Coliseum, there’s no better way to give the B.zero1 an update better than the design legend herself – the late, great, Zaha Hadid.

Zaha Hadid, famous for her deconstructivism in modern architecture, evolved in her works over time. Starting with angular aggressive forms like the Vitra Fire Station, Hadid progressed toward works that epitomise fluidity and movement such as the Dongaemun Design Plaza (DDP) and the Heydar Aliyev Centre.

The B.zero1, birthed in 1999, has also evolved over the years – and with this latest interpretation, the brand is exploring a certain beauty in deconstruction. Through Zaha Hadid’s expert vision of fluidity in deconstruction, together with Bulgari’s drive for innovation and craftsmanship, this collaboration marks a new chapter for the timeless B.zero1.C

Carefully deconstructing the central band of the B.zero1, its structure and uniformity is transformed into undulating gold waves. Held together with the iconic intersecting circles engraved with the BVLGARI logo, the birth of the Design Legend was born.

Available in Singapore from April 2017 in various styles, B.zero1 Design Legend will come in pink or white gold, with pink gold available in 3 band or 4 band styles. There will also be one with 3 bands in white gold, plus a pink gold pendant that rounds up the collection nicely. No word yet on their exact retail prices so do stay tuned for more updates.

Monique Péan Wooly Mammoth Bangles: Ebony and Ivory

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Monique Péan Wooly Mammoth Bangles

With their trendy color scheme (or lack of color scheme, really), Monique Péan’s eco-friendly bangles are hotter than ever. Fossilized wooly mammoth, one of her favorite materials to work with, provides the perfect, pure blank canvas for the designer’s dark designs, all of which are hand-carved. I would even buy these plain, though – the quality is that good! My favorite bracelet is the dotted – it has a fun pattern that matures into pure sophistication on the bangle. The graphic stripes  and V-patterned ones would look good on your arm, too (so maybe indulge in a couple??), but the most intricate and intriguing choice is the scrimshaw . Pair any of these with some gold bracelets or other Monique pieces, and you’ve got a sustainably stylish look. Available at Barneys New York.

Ashley Pittman Jewels: Do-Gooders

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Ashley Pittman Jewels

I finally met beautiful jewelry designer Ashley Pittman at her personal appearance in Dallas last week. I’ve been an admirer of her work, but there’s more to it than meets the eye! Since volunteering for the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative in Rwanda in 2006, Ashley has sought out ways to help East African communities in need. Her jewel line provides training and employment to local artisan groups there who use fair trade gems and carved natural horn to create these unique pieces. All of the jewels are true standouts. Made from recycled taupe bone, thespiked bronze and bone necklace provides a sense of authority to any outfit, while the marbled Almasi horn cuff gives you some polish. 10% of the profits are donated to fund schooling and healthcare for the Kenyan tribes that Ashley visits, so don’t be shy when you buy! Available on NET-A-PORTER.

Saint Laurent Opium Onyx Necklace: Chain of Command

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


Saint Laurent Opium Onyx Necklace

Saint Laurent nails minimalist chic yet again with this crazy good reissue from their archives. The geometric design hangs from a snake chain that centers around a piece of black onyx. This gemstone is thought to protect against negativity and build up your confidence (wearing it on a stunning necklace certainly can’t hurt your confidence either!). The price will make your jaw drop momentarily, but just think about the lifetime of wear you’ll get out of this. The gold-plated statement necklace is Art Deco-inspired, yet completely modern, and that’s the best kind of vintage – the kind that becomes timeless. You’ll have no trouble finding occasion to throw it on! 

Pair with: This piece is heavy on the metal, so choose a bag without hardware like Nancy Gonzalez’s white croc clutch . The sleek design coordinates perfectly with the simple style of Saint Laurent’s necklace.
