Bulgari and Elizabeth Taylor

elizabeth-taylor

Elizabeth Taylor’s personal jewellery collection has been lauded as one of the most spectacular ever assembled. The jewels, and woman who wore them, have left behind a legacy that continues to intrigue and delight.

In 2011, the sale of Taylor’s collection at Christie’s set world records as the most valuable jewellery auction in history.
This year, Bulgari are showcasing an exclusive selection of the actress’ jewellery. The enchanting stones and exquisite craftsmanship on display evoke the love, glamour and fascination surrounding Taylor’s life.

Screengrab Liz

Richard Burton once said, “the only Italian Elizabeth knows is Bulgari”. And it is true that the actress found a perfect match for her lavish lifestyle in the bold and decadent sensibility of the house. Taylor’s lifelong affinity with Bulgari started in 1962, when she settled in Rome to film Cleopatra. It was during this time that her notorious love affair with Burton was ignited on-set, and sealed with the opulent Bulgari treasures that he gifted her with. Aware of the magnetic power these jewels had on her, it thrilled Burton to see them adorning the most beautiful woman in the world.

For Taylor, her jewels were a source of pure joy, whose magic she could share by wearing them. She believed that one cannot truly own jewellery: “I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it.”

The exhibition will run from the 30th of June until the 16th of July at the Bulgari boutique on New Bond Street. Opening hours are 10am until 6pm.

Colour Analysis with Quintessentially Style

3903CarbonCanyon57-e1433451173615

The arrival of a new season always calls for a sartorial refresh; refining and re-defining your style, letting go of the old to make room for the new. It can be all too easy to accumulate an excess of unworn clothes, pieces which clog up your closet and ultimately hinder your best-dressed self. Even the most covetable of wardrobes can benefit from a little editing – but on what basis should you begin? The answer is simple: less confusion, more cohesion.

Quintessentially Style offer sessions in Colour Analysis, a process that allows you to overhaul your entire look based on a specific selection of shades. Dressing in hues that complement your natural colouring has been proven to make you appear rejuvenated, illuminating your complexion with a radiant glow. After a detailed consultation, you will receive a report explaining your unique ‘colour season’ along with a precision-dyed spectrum of swatches, created exclusively to harmonise with your skin tone, hair and eye colour.

Understanding your colour season will completely change the trajectory of your shopping habits, enabling you to buy decisively and methodically. In a market that is oversaturated with options, the ability to distill your selection eliminates stress, time wasted, and money misspent. Never again will you have nothing to wear; streamlining your palette means that any ensemble you pull together will be perfectly polished and coordinated.

The result is a cleverly curated wardrobe: sleek, de-cluttered and full of forever pieces.

Part of Quintessentially Gifts, Quintessentially Style is dedicated to delivering an unrivalled styling service for both men and women. To find out more, please contact gifts@quintessentially.com

Custom-made shoes by Bionda Castana

The best friends behind Bionda Castana have gained a cult following for their blend of luxurious Italian craftsmanship and effortless British cool…

Label-to-watch_Bionda-Castana_shoe-designer_rosario-red-1660x1323

Bionda Castana, or ‘The Blonde Brunette’, began as a moniker for British-Italian duo Jennifer Portman and Natalie Barbieri when they met at University. Ten years later, the pair quit high-flying careers in the City to translate their business acumen – and their nickname – into a company of their own.

Adored by fashion editors, A-Listers and It-Girls alike, the label offers timeless, beautifully-made shoes with a distinctive youthful sensibility. The ladies champion the distinctive traits of their cultural inheritance when it comes to shoemaking, fusing artisanal Italian craftsmanship with a contemporary British edge.

Each pair is designed in London and handmade in a little town just outside Lake Como, with an emphasis on the finest materials and comfort of wear. Classic silhouettes form the basis of their collections, yet elevated with a twist or two – think contrasting textures, geometric cut-outs and opulent embellishments – in a kaleidoscope of colourways.

CUSTOM-MADE SHOES

You can choose your favourite patterns, fabrics and colours to create your own limited-edition pair of shoes, which will be handmade in Milan and arrive within 3-4 weeks. Please contact gifts@quintessentially.com to find out more.
