BULGARI debuts its redesigned corner stores in Istanbul Airport, fittingly bringing the magic of the Eternal City to another historical metropolis, both long-ago stops on the legendary Silk Road.
Today, Istanbul serves as connection point for Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, and at the heart of its major travel hub, in terminals 4 and 6 of Istanbul Airport, luxury-loving guests can tap the magic of Italy with BVLGARI. Created in partnership with Heinemann and Unifree, the Rome-inspired stores take travellers on a journey through the BVLGARI high perfumery collections, focusing on personalized gifting and bespoke services that cater to globe-trotters.
A JOURNEY FROM ROME TO ISTANBUL
To evoke its timeless birthplace, Rome, BVLGARI unites classic architecture, distinctly Italian design and traditional craftsmanship in its new store concept. The result? An expression of eternal modernity that seals the extraordinary commercial route between Rome and Istanbul.
Drawing on BVLGARI’s Roman roots, Italian Pavonazzetto marble suffuses each space with the grandeur of the Eternal City. The luxurious marble dresses up the display units, and a solid marble table anchors each shop. The table echoes the clean lines of Roman monuments with a pillar-like stand and creates an inviting spot for fragrance exploration. A saffron backdrop, a nod to a Roman sunset, captures Rome’s radiance and warmth.
Against the golden beige colour palette, the joyful colours of the fragrance collection and silk scarves shine with the boundless energy of Italy. The irresistible presentation invites guests to touch and smell the exquisite creations and to linger. For a moment in Istanbul airport, every traveller can soak in the Roman vibes and be whisked away by the exuberant emotions of the Italian lifestyle.
