BVLGARI TRIP - Rome & Vatican

So, here goes the last part of my #bulgaritrip in Italy: Rome & Vatican edition. I've already uploaded the video of the trip on my youtube channel last week and in case you missed it, you can watch the video above :)

We started the day having a cup of coffee of course but in a fancy way, at Bulgari's. Just kidding, we bought it right in front of the iconic store right before going inside and had a quick tour. The store is located at 10 Via dei Condotti, and it is Bulgari's first original store (after replacing the one in Via Sistina back in 1905) in the world.

A lovely store tour by Mr. Giovanni, thank you for having us and for filling us with interesting history about Bulgari, from the family, the iconic interiors, to the uniqueness of Bulgari jewelry pieces.

A quick stop at the Spanish Steps and also to learn about the fact that Rome's Spanish Steps had finally reopened in 2016 after its restoration funded by an Italian luxury brand and it's none other than BVLGARI.

Not forgetting to visit Fontana di Trevi to toss my coin and make a wish, and finally the Vatican Museum. Learning about ancient history is always exciting, you know ;)

Spending our last day in Rome with, first, a Sunday Mass at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican and seeing the Pope from the window while he's giving his Angelus blessing.

Then we went back to Rome to visit the other iconic amphitheater, the Colosseum just before going to the airport. Do you know that Bulgari's Bzero1 collection was inspired by the eternal perfection of the Colosseum?

"The design merging the imposing grandeur of Rome's great Colosseum, the most eternal of all monuments, with the strong lines of modern Italian design."

And it's finally the end of my trip together with Bulgari.

Last but not least, I would like to thank BVLGARI Indonesia and Tefi again and again for the opportunity and the experience, I surely had a memorable trip in Italy this year. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH.

The last of Autumn

Currently at the airport writing this entry while waiting for our flight to Sydney tonight. Well, it was the last of Autumn in Tokyo and I was wearing full outfit from my latest collaboration with Etiquette "The Morning After". The collection is all about comfortable wear that you can wear just any day, any time, day to night. Ranging from oversized pieces to all size dresses, from linen to velvet and more. My favorite from the collection has got to be the velvet series, the top and pants set and also the coat dress.

You can check the complete collection at
Pssst, we also have limited Christmas edition pieces (available at @etiquette_indonesia Instagram) that you wouldn't want to miss :)

BVLGARI TRIP - BVLGARI Manifattura in Valenza

Last September, I had the chance to visit the new BVLGARI Manifattura in Valenza and had a little tour inside; it was definitely memorable and very interesting to me. I can't thank Bulgari Indonesia enough for such wonderful opportunity. Witnessing the long process and the hard work of these people behind the excellent craftsmanship of Bulgari jewelries, making unique pieces that we normally see in stores. From mock-up wax to mock-up metal and finally the actual pieces, then to the cleansing process, the polishing and the application of stones and diamonds. Impeccable! I really hope you guys can see it live too, to appreciate every single piece of the jewelries.

You can also watch the tour video on my youtube channel.

Bringing this Serpenti Viper bag to accompany me inside ;)
