Marco Bicego presents three new extensions of the Africa collection ♦ ︎
The father of Marco Bicego, Giuseppe Bicego, started his business founding a gold chain factory, in Vicenza. The success of the goldsmith’s company, however, was not enough for the designer, who created his own proposal. In fact, in his father’s company, Marco Bicego started experimenting and learning the trade, until he opened his own brand in 2000.
His collections are often inspired by the places he has visited and which have him remained most impressed, such as Jaipur, Cairo, Murano and Africa. And the latter collection, one of the most successful, now has a series of extensions, with variations on the theme for now presented on the American market: the first is Africa Turquoise, which, as in the original collection, is composed of gold spheres engraved by hand with the Florentine burin technique «perfectly imperfect». But next to the 18 carat gold there are turquoise pearls. Then there is Africa Constellation, with brilliant-cut diamonds of various sizes set in the golden pearls and Africa Stellar, with rough, unworked diamonds. The collections will be available officially during 2018. Alessia Mongrando
