CHINA. Italian luxury house Bvlgari has partnered with China Duty Free Group for the spectacular global premiere of the Bvlgari Allegra Maxi Shelley collection at the Sanya International Duty Free Shopping Complex in Haitang Bay (exclusively previewed here last week). The pop-up is located on the first floor of Zone A at the CDF Mall. It was officially opened on 25 September and will run until 24 October.
The Moodie Davitt Report is proud to present exclusive pictures and videos from the colourful, playful and joyous pop-up which celebrates the launch of the special line of Maxi Shelley silks.

As reported, Bvlgari Allegra Maxi Shelley combines the Italian brand’s fragrance and silk heritage in a 360° luxury experience at the CDF Mall, which offers enhanced personalisation to accessorise the fragrance collection. Bvlgari described the silk Shelley as “the Italian accessory par excellence.”
Allegra is an expression of cheerfulness or joy in Italian and that sense of emotion is evoked by the bright colours and rich textures of the Maxi Shelleys and the vibrancy of the fragrances.
Customers at the CDF Mall can choose from an exclusive selection of Maxi Shelley silks to personalise their Bvlgari Allegra fragrances, opening a rainbow of styling opportunities.
Each fragrance can be personalised by adding ‘Magnifying Essences’, including Rose, Bergamot, Patchouli, Vanilla and Musk, to suit every mood and occasion.
More creativity. More enjoyment. More Italian emotions. That’s what on offer in a sumptuous global premiere of the Bvlgari Allegra Maxi Shelley collection at CDF Mall in Haitang Bay
Endless styling opportunities: Customers can personalise their Allegra fragrances with Magnifying Essences and choose a brightly coloured Maxi Shelley silk to accessorise their fragrance bottles
The Magnifying Essences contain powerful concentrations of high-quality natural ingredients, giving the Allegra scents a personalised twist as customers are encouraged to #MagnifyForMore.
Just as the fragrances can be personalised with Magnifying Essences, the Bvlgari Allegra Maxi Shelley Collection opens up the opportunity for customers to accessorise their fragrances too.
The Allegra Maxi Shelley silks feature intricate handmade drawings that showcase Italian artistry. They can be used to accessorise perfume bottles, bags, hats or worn as bracelets and necklaces.
Niche fragrances are a growing trend in China. The Bvlgari Allegra Maxi Shelley line gives customers an extra layer of personalisation with silks while magnifying essences add further capability to tailor one’s fragrance to a particular mood or occasion.
“The Allegra Maxi Shelly represents a new dimension of personalisation behind the Bvlgari olfactive experience,” commented Bvlgari Perfume Managing Director Luis Miguel Gonzalez. “Following our unique creative philosophy, the Maxi Shelly has been created with the highest craftsmanship by our own artisans in our exclusive silk ateliers in the north of Italy.
“Each Maxi Shelly magnifies the superlative Italian emotions and stories; and magnifies another opportunity for our clients to wear a personalised perfume. They are colourful, emotional, playful and very joyful. Our clients will be able to express their emotions either by wearing them on their hair, decoratively to complement their fashion looks and to accessorise themselves.
With the CDF Mall being the best-performing travel retail location for the Bvlgari Allegra fragrance collection, it was the perfect door to launch the Bvlgari Allegra Maxi Shelley line globally, the brand said in a strong affirmation of CDFG’s luxury credentials.
The Bvlgari Allegra fragrance collection, launched by CDFG in Haitang Bay earlier this year, comprises five eaux de parfums: Riva Solare, Dolce Estasi, Fiori D’Amore, Rock’ N’ Rome and Fantasia Veneta, which are also the names of the matching Maxi Shelley silk scarves.
