BLACK & GOLD: LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

While the color gold is often connected to wealth, extravagance, sparkle and loudness, its deeper association is to illumination, compassion, courage and wisdom -attributes we’re all in need of these days. Black, on the other hand, relates almost invariably to power, fear and mystery. But it also represents strength and seriousness, which, mixed with the former more humane characteristics of gold, make up an ideal formula for the world to stand as one in tough times.

In lifestyle, black symbolizes elegance, formality and sophistication; gold goes for glamor and glitz. Here are 5 items to spread magic on your day -and to add to your black and gold wishlist..

Bentley Mulliner Bacalar

The new Mulliner Bacalar, revealed in Crewe, England earlier this month, was presented to the world as the most exclusive and bespoke two-door Bentley of this era. Its ultra-modern ‘Barchetta’ design delivers the ultimate expression of open-top, driver-focused grand touring, in a gold-color body wrapping a black interior, livened up by touches of gold. The exceptional car is limited in 12 examples, guaranteeing its rarity and exclusivity, and has already been allocated to customers from around the world. Talk about precious! We can still dream though…
