Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Jewels -

t all be­gan with an ex­otic Au­tumn/Win­ter ’16 col­lec­tion, a su­per­model, and a leg­endary last name thrown into the mix to cre­ate magic. The last name is Ave­don. Yes, that Ave­don, but not

for it is his grand­son Michael Ave­don that has taken on the lens and is carv­ing a name for him­self as a pho­tog­ra­pher. The young Ave­don is be­hind the Au­tumn/Win­ter ’16 cam­paign shots star­ring Bri­tish su­per­model Rosie Hunt­ing­ton-White­ley, the new face of the Ro­man jew­ellery brand’s ac­ces­sories line. There was a clear artis­tic di­rec­tion that summed up the en­tire col­lec­tion: rock ’n’ roll shades with glo­ri­ous gems in new man­i­fes­ta­tions of Bul­gari’s iconic Ser­penti and Bul­gari-Bul­gari col­lec­tions.

The ser­pent is one of the most an­cient sym­bols of Greek and Ro­man mytholo­gies. Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the se­duc­tive snake, Bul­gari rein­ter­preted finely crafted sym­bol­isms onto its bags this sea­son. The Quilted Scaglie bag with its two chevron em­broi­deries, adds a scale-like ef­fect on the bag, while the new clasps in the form of a geo­met­ric gem­stone ser­pent head in­spired by the high jew­ellery pieces, make it the talk of the town. The Ser­penti For­ever in glossy phy­ton bas-re­lief, made from the front cut of a ser­pent’s skin, is the rebel of this Au­tumn/Win­ter ’16 col­lec­tion. And
