Bulgari B.Zero1 gets an update with a little help from the late, great, Dame Zaha Hadid. After her demise in 2016, Hadid left behind a legacy unlike any other. Mega-buildings and curvaceous infrastructures, of course, but she is also fondly remembered for her pioneering ways, inspiring legions of female architects, Arab women and women in general to tirelessly pursue their dreams, break convention and shatter glass ceilings. Bulgari had been in talks with the architect since 2015 for this collaboration which consists of rings, a bangle (coming soon) and a delicate pink gold pendant. Inspired by the circular design of the Roman Colosseum, Hadid deconstructs the original solid stacked B.Zero1 design, resulting in the new Design Legend which appears like a floating, oscillating ribbon.

Shir Chong models the timeless new pieces in this video. The sleek, sophisticated design inspires the eye to take a closer look at the impeccable workmanship Bulgari is known for. For evening, wear multiple pieces at once like Shir, or dress them down with denim. The Bulgari B.Zero1 is a lesson in versatility and understated elegance. Now that's true luxury.

Shir wears Bulgari B.Zero1 Design Legend 3-band ring in pink gold, RM7,700; B.Zero1 Design Legend 4-band ring in pink gold, RM9,400; B.Zero1 Design Legend 3-band ring in white gold, RM8,700; and B.Zero1 Design Legend pendant in pink gold, RM11,200. All available at Bulgari boutiques.
