Blackpink Lisa wearing the Bvlgari Bvlgari x Lisa Limited Edition Watch
K-pop stars are currently receiving greater attention as news of new brand ambassadors at various high-end fashion firms has made headlines in the sector. Luxury companies are capitalizing on the rising success of these South Korean artists, starting with Jimin from BTS serving as Dior’s newest brand ambassador to other groupmate Suga at Valentino and Big Bang’s Taeyang’s new position at Givenchy. A new collaboration between Bvlgari and Lisa from Blackpink has been launched; it is a watch called the Bvlgari Bvlgari x Lisa Limited Edition.
The clocks are offered in steel cases measuring 23 mm and 33 mm in diameter. Aside from steel, the watch is also available in 18K rose gold with an engraved “BVLGARI BVLGARI” bezel. Its dial has a sunray design that changes colors from green to blue and purple depending on how the light interacts with the watch face or when the wearer views it from different angles.
The color palette’s adaptability parallels Lisa’s several personas, from singer to rapper to Celine muse. Bvlgari is a famous jewelry company with a lengthy history, in addition to being a talented timepiece maker. As a result, 12 diamonds serve as hour markers around the dials, which are swept over by two rose gold hands. Furthermore, the rose gold crown is set with a cabochon-cut rubellite, which is one of the brand’s distinguishing features. A quartz movement powers this gorgeous clock.
The etching on the closed caseback is of the Swiss Alpine flower, the edelweiss, which is also Lisa’s favorite flower. “For my first collaboration with Bulgari, I picked my favorite flower, the edelweiss, and drew the drawing with the ‘L’ initial in the centre of the rear cover,” the multi-hyphenate says in an Instagram caption. In addition to being Lisa’s favorite color, the edelweiss pays homage to Bvlgari’s Swiss watchmaking factories.
The Bvlgari Bvlgari x Lisa Limited Edition is available in a limited edition of 700 for the 33 mm variant and 300 for the 23 mm size.
