Surely a jewelry collection reaches icon status once it blows out 20 candles – and who can accomplish such a feat better than the definitive Italian luxury label, Bvlgari? The collection in question is, of course, ‘B.zero1’, which has both defied conformity and introduced a classic by drawing inspiration from the storied Colosseum in Rome.
To commemorate its 20th anniversary, Bvlgari is once again doing what it does best: designing outside the box. This time around, it’s with the ‘XX’ anniversary collection that features four special new editions of the legendary ‘B.zero1’ ring in sublime shades of gold. As for the faces of this celebration? Bvlgari went bold by tapping regional favorites Arwa al Banawi, Tara Emad, and Mthayel Al Ali to showcase these pieces that practically border on objet d’art territory. Find out more about the burgeoning icons modeling Bvlgari’s design icons, below.
Arwa Al Banawi
When she stepped onto the scene, designer Arwa Al Banawi changed the game by giving women a style companion that took a cue from the boys – except she managed to elevate the typical suit by putting her own spin on it. Known for a distinctive approach to womenswear, Al Banawi executes her work with a little class and a lot of flare.
At just 25, Egyptian actress Tara Emad has become one to watch due to her immeasurable talent and striking good looks, but it’s her philanthropic heart that truly makes her shine. A perfect representation of the collection’s progressive aesthetic, she’s layered, complex, and completely individual when it comes to her style.
Mthayel Al Ali
Fashionable entrepreneur Mthayel Al Ali understands the power of social media to impact change, especially when it comes to the perception of modest style. Poised, refined, and never compromising on her values, Al Ali’s fondness for staying true to herself makes her an icon in her own right.
