Isabella Rossellini – who recently participated in a specially designed photo session on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the famous Italian brand, organized to raise funds for the humanitarian project “Rewrite the Future” – has collaborated with the designers of this Italian fashion house to create a special line of accessories.
Francesco Trapani, chief executive of Bvlgari Group, commented: “These purses gracefully expresses the essence of impeccable elegance of Isabella Rossellini. Sensitive, intelligent and blessed with an innate creative flair, she personifies the feminine ideal which always inspired the creations of the Bulgari brand”.
Isabella Rossellini, who for 14 years represented the image of French luxury cosmetics brand, Lancome, said that her admiration towards the Bvlgari house dates from childhood and she wanted to bring a “personal touch” to the new line of handbags launched by the Italian group.
The star aged 58 years said: “My emotional relationship with Bvlgari brand dates back to childhood, when I went with my mother to the famous store on Via Condotti in Rome. She loved Bvlgari jewelry, I still remember very clearly some of those”.
“The purse is an indispensable accessory for all the women and I tried to make it a stylish and luxury item, like a jewel. I wanted to bring a personal touch to the handbags, including in their design drawings that I created for my surreal films, thereby combining art, design, fashion and film, humor and elegance”, the actress added.
