Bulgari launches twin stores in Sydney

Bulgari has launched its new twin stores concept at 64-68 Castlereagh Street, on the ground floor of the heritage listed former Ushers Metropolitan Hotel building. The gala launch included a display of vintage Bulgari jewellery, including a necklace made for the Shah of Persia in 1967, worn by Keira Knightly for the 2006 Academy Awards.

The twin store setup was designed by Bulgari's in-house architects, as a way to showcase Bulgari accessories while maintaining a jewellery/watches salon. The same design team was also responsible for the via della Spiga in Milan and the recent makeover of Bulgari's flagship NY store.
