Bvlgari High Jewellery Collection features at Mary Katrantzou's SS20 Show

On 3 October in Cape Sounion, Greece, Bvlgari High Jewellery and Heritage Collection pieces were featured in Mary Katrantzou’s Spring/Summer 2020 show.
The ancient Temple of Poseidon on Cape Sounion, which was built between 444–440 BC, served as the breathtaking backdrop for the runway show. Perched 200 feet above the Aegean sea, the Temple of Poseidon is one of the major monuments of the Golden Age of Athens. This is the first time a fashion show has ever been staged at this heritage site.
Designer Mary Katrantzou and Bvlgari Jewellery’s Creative Director Lucia Silvestri worked together to define the looks featured in the show.
One Bvlgari necklace was specially created for the occasion and featured an ancient Greek coin.
The Roman jeweller paid homage with this collection to the founder’s Greek origins, Sotirio Bulgari, who carved his name in history by crafting exquisite jewellery in Rome from 1884.
The show also celebrated the 30th anniversary of the founding of ELPIDA, the Association of Friends of Children with Cancer, established by Mrs. Marianna V. Vardinoyannis. It was a show in the present, celebrating the past, for a charity which gives hope for the future to thousands of children.
