——环球网时尚频道 独家视频专访BVLGARI宝格丽大中华区董事总经理Kolia Neveux
1.Why did you choose to join the diamond industry since your major is politics and business?您是研修政治和商科的，为什么选择进入钻石行业？
I had a strong passion for precious stones. And life is made of opportunities, and I met someone who gave me my chance to become a diamond dealer, I didn’t think twice. I was very attracted by diamonds. So, I decided to dive in fully, and I did it for almost eight years with pleasure.
2. Under what circumstances did you join LVMH, the world's largest luxury goods group?是怎样的契机进去到LVMH集团，毕竟那里是全球最大的奢侈品集团？
It was mainly a moment in my life when I became a father, so when the centre of the world was no longer me but my son and this new born, this birth, brought a lot of questions. I felt that I needed to develop myself and to learn more and I restarted my studies and after graduating I met with people representing the brand Tag Heuer and it was once again a very interesting opportunity for me to work for a very dynamic brand at the time and to work with people that I can learn with and develop myself. And what is better than a brand from LVMH (? 2:07), to develop marketing skills, to develop also a lot of competences that I couldn’t develop before. So, I made this choice and once again I dived fully into this new world.
3. Men's consumption power is underestimated in China according to recent analyses by some economists, so how BVLGARI responded in terms of tapping into the men's market in that country?最近有经济学家分析，中国的男性消费被低估了，对于男性市场的开拓，宝格丽是如何积极推进的？
I would say that our top priority is naturally the ladies segment because we are a jeweller, above all, even though we have in total five divisions, we have jewellery, watches, perfume, accessories and hotel and resort. The men’s segment is a very interesting segment for us, and we are growing heavily in this segment thanks to the Octo and the recognition by the specialised price and the consumer of the strengths of the Octo watch. We are still, I would say, a bit weak in terms of offers for men’s jewellery and we are taking into considering this opportunity and I’m sure Bulgari in the coming months and coming years will try to answer this growing demand.
4. As a brand with a long history of 134 years, BVLGARI is widely known for its signature serpenti and architecture design elements. What is the brand’s strategy in terms of serving young consumers today?宝格丽作为一个拥有134年的品牌，最让人印象深刻的是蛇头、建筑元素，锁定当下年轻消费群的时候有哪些考虑？
I would say that millennials are of course for most of the luxury brands one of the favourite targets. The best way to make them understand the strong icons that are Serpentine, B.zero1, Diva, is to be accessible and as much as we can to develop an approach where we will give some content, give some substance and explain what our brand stands for, what those strong signs are standing for and from this perspective, craftsmanship, heritage, traditions, big exhibitions are helping us a lot to gain legitimacy with those young customers.
5. Why can a piece of jewelry or a watch represent an individual style? How BVLGARI has cultivated its exceptional jewelry culture over its 134 years of business development?一件珠宝或者腕表，为什么可以代表自己的格调？宝格丽134年的探索，形成了怎样的珠宝文化？
Buglari is the magnificent women jeweller, master of colour stones. We have in all our creations a strong reference to Rome, the eternal city. B.zero1 has the same shape as the Colosseum, Diva has been inspired by the mosaic of the Caracalla Baths, so all our creations are really deeply related to our DNA. Take Octo, the octagon is a motif that was taken from a church in Rome, from the ceiling of a church. So, most of our creations are inspired by Rome, by the fact that we belong, that the company belongs to Rome and is a real Roman company. We tend to really be very close to our DNA and each creation has to relate very closely to our heritage and to our roots that make Bulgari so different. This is why as well we are very bold, we are very daring, if you look at Serpenti for example, Serpenti embodies those values of being different, being seductive, being proud and confident with yourself. This is probably at Bulgari the kind of clients we would like to have more and more.
宝格丽是意大利珠宝世家、彩色宝石大师。宝格丽根植于“永恒之城”罗马。B.zero1系列的造型源于古罗马斗兽场;Divas’ Dream系列的灵感来自卡拉卡拉大浴场(Caracalla Baths)的彩色扇形马赛克，无一不彰显宝格丽的品牌源泉。以Octo系列为例，八角形造型受到古罗马大教堂拱顶的启发。罗马是宝格丽的灵感之源，宝格丽属于罗马，由内而外散发着罗马气息。我们忠于品牌基因，为消费者奉上契合品牌传统的创作，传承品牌的精髓。这种追求决定了宝格丽果敢不羁的风格。这一点从Serpenti系列便可见一斑——Serpenti系列代表着自成一格、摄人心魄、自信笃定的态度与追求。我们期待吸引更多心意相投的消费者。
6. What will BVLGARI plan to do in terms of promoting its jewelry culture and art in the Chinese market?未来，宝格丽在中国市场上会有哪些针对珠宝文化、珠宝艺术的发展计划？
As most of our creations are inspired by Rome, by architecture, by painting, by mosaics, I would say that art is really part of our DNA. We have run several exhibitions in museums, MAXXI in Rome, we are doing a lot of brand exhibitions to make links between our creations and the art movements. One very nice exhibition that was touring the world was Serpenti Form, this exhibition was all about the theme of the snake throughout history and throughout art. And it was very interesting to remind people of the strengths of the snake symbol. Which illustrates why in the 50s we have chosen to rejuvenate this strong icon and why we are still today levering as much as we can the power of the snake for jewellery or for watch making.
