Bvlgari | Iconic Women of Design

by Christopher Andrew Armstrong

Twenty years ago Bvlgari changed the realm of fashion forever when they introduced the B.Zero1 series featuring a ring whose band was meant to resemble the famed Rome Coliseum. Gone were the days of circular, old-fashioned bands and, suddenly, designers began to take note by producing bands which paid more attention to style and form. Bulgari celebrates the collection’s anniversary with Iconic Women of Design, a video series produced in partnership with T Brand Studios.

The video series focuses on different women who’ve helped changed the course of their profession with innovative, and creative ideas. Kim Gordon, the visual artist and founding member of the noise rock band Sonic Youth, speaks about her creative process, as well as her relationship with music.

Architect Toshiko Mori, the force behind such mind-bending projects like the Brooklyn Children’s Museum Rooftop Pavilion and the Syracuse Center of Excellence, is framed in her own lived-in environments where she discusses the intimacy behind spatial design.  

Tschabalala Self, whose art explores the black female body by using synthetic hair and chocolate milk, takes the viewer into her studio, revealing her inspirations behind the work she creates.

Celebrity chef, as well as Michelin Award Winner, Dalad Kambhu, whose restaurant Kin Dee breathed new life in the Berlin dining scene, is captured as she prepares a meal inside her kitchen, speaking about the powers behind collaboration, a central element in her creative process.
