AUGUST 21, 2018 - DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, and Italy’s luxury jewelry house Bvlgari, are delighted to announce a new edition of LVCEA TUBOGAS, available exclusively at DFS and T Galleria by DFS stores from August 1, 2018 until January 31, 2019.
This exclusive DFS collection introduces two new brilliant Bvlgari LVCEA TUBOGAS pieces, the first major design evolution of the LVCEA collection since its 2014 launch. For the first time, LVCEA is presented with the iconic TUBOGAS bracelet, highlighting Bvlgari’s heritage as a jeweler. The TUBOGAS technique has been used in jewelry making since the late 1940s. The design was revived in the 1970s when Bvlgari introduced it into watches, bracelets, necklaces and rings. The effect of a stark, engineered coil combined with coins and richly colored precious gems created a fascinating contrast that marked Bvlgari’s style of jewels, intended to be worn and enjoyed every day.
“The new LVCEA TUBOGAS collection signifies what Bvlgari is and has always been about - homage to legacy, and the grace of uniquely designed watches from the brand heritage since the 1940s. Bvlgari is pleased to present this new additional LVCEA TUBOGAS with DFS. This premium network represents the ultimate luxury retail shopping experience in the travel retail channel. With Bvlgari’s unique products, combined with DFS’ expertise in delivering customized customer experience, we are certain to satisfy travelers’ needs,” said Kolia Neveux, Regional Managing Director, Bvlgari Greater China.
“At DFS we continually seek to offer our traveling customers new, exclusive and iconic product selections. We are delighted to work with our longstanding partner Bvlgari to provide first access to this beautiful and unique collection,” said Matthew Green, DFS Group Vice President Luxury Fashion, Watches, Jewelry and Accessories.
Bvlgari’s new LVCEA TUBOGAS range will be available exclusively for purchase at DFS and T Galleria by DFS stores worldwide until January 2019.
Seamlessly fusing its jewelry-making heritage and watchmaking skills, Bvlgari introduces the brand-new LVCEA TUBOGAS, embracing stylistic audacity and a penchant for rich, vibrant color:
Caressing the wrist with exquisite comfort, the new LVCEA TUBOGAS brings an everyday modernity to the LVCEA universe.
