The luxury Italian jewellery and accessories boutique FORTEDEMARMI , based in Florence, Moscow and Dubai, has designed an exclusive collection of one-off clutches and jewellery for UAE bridal retailer DAR SARÀ Dubai. Each heavily jewelled masterpiece is handmade in Italy, and encapsulates everything FORTEDEMARMI stands for: beauty, harmony and exquisite design.
DAR SARÀ Dubai is one of the most sought after bridal boutiques in the UAE, led by celebrity fashion designer Joumana Al Hayek. Hayek is internationally renowned for her high fashion and bridal gowns, and has dressed stars such as Shakira, Carmen Electra and Britney Spears. She asked to collaborate with FORTEDEMARMI because she felt the two brands represented the same luxury style and her client base would appreciate matching accessories for their big day.
Alessandro Lotti, co-owner of FORTEDEMARMI said, “We were absolutely thrilled to be asked by Joumana Al Hayek to design and create this exclusive bridal collection. We have our own classic bridal range of bags and jewellery but it was exciting to expand on that and create these one-off pieces which won’t be available to buy anywhere else. Each piece is destined to bring beauty and harmony to its owner, so it is perfect for wearing on your wedding day.”
Notorious for its luxury glittering clutch bags, FORTEDEMARMI has created two utterly different clutches for the DAR SARÀ exclusive collection. Dripping in precious jewels, the 24k gold plated Acqua SD SIRIO handbag features a gold clasp, white diamonds and fuchsia sapphires in the shape of a cocktail glass. The name of the bag is also significant – Acqua is the Italian word for water, which is symbolic for life, blessing and renewal. Sirio is the Italian name for Sirius, the brightest star in the sky.
For brides with an appetite for alligator leather, then the Stella 1D JUNO clutch is the perfect choice. Made of grey and white alligator skin, the stunning clutch bag also showcases handmade patterns in gold. The solid gold clasp is in a 4 star shape, with a pave of champagne diamonds and one fancy brown diamond in the centre of the star. Again, the name has been as meticulously thought through as the physical design, as Stella can be translated into ‘star’ symbolic of hope and guidance. Juno is the goddess of marriage, birth and family and is known for her beauty.
Each handcrafted deluxe bag comes complete with a matching bracelet made of gold and exotic leather.
Select FORTEDEMARMI jewelled clutches are also available in Dubai DAR SARA BOUTIQUES, each of which pair perfectly with DAR SARA’s breath taking gowns
