The boutique’s welcoming open storefront showcases an antique black marble entrance adorned with the iconic Roman lettered logo of the brand. Inside, the choice of materials and colour palette evokes a connection to ancient Rome. An inlaid brass eight-point star, a unifying symbol used in Bulgari boutiques worldwide, graces the entrance zone.

A centrepiece of the boutique is an elegant oval counter featuring a sculptured travertine top, as well as a private sales lounge.

Also on display are several works by pop artist Andy  Warhol, who famously once said: “For me, calling at a Bulgari shop is like visiting the  best exhibition of contemporary art.”
