The release, announced earlier this year, has received international attention and acclaim. The successful collaboration marks the beginning of a very exciting roadmap for the Asprey Bugatti Collection and the Asprey Studio.
The physical sculptures feature assorted colours matching their NFT artwork. Each coloured base relates to the iconic brand colours of Asprey and Bugatti, representing the partnership and history of both brands. The attention to detail and production quality means the sculptures will take a least six months to craft, reflecting the exceptional pursuit of perfection for Asprey and Bugatti.
Owners of the Asprey x Bugatti collection will be able to exhibit their sculptures and NFTs at Asprey’s flagship store in Mayfair, London. A dedicated Asprey Bugatti gallery will showcase the collection and preview the sculptures and making-of process, with the artwork displayed on Asprey’s large LED screens. Owners of the 261 collection will also benefit from additional Asprey Studio utilities, including; events, complimentary collectables and whitelisting to all upcoming releases.
Wiebke Stahl, Managing Director at Bugatti International, said: “BUGATTI and Asprey (Studio) both represent the rare combination of time-honored tradition, innovation, and groundbreaking technologies – qualities which overlap each brand’s exclusive creations over hundreds of years. This is the beginning of an exciting chapter, and we are looking forward to soon sharing much more about our inaugural works of art.”
Handcrafted at Asprey’s London workshop by master silversmiths. The skills involved are increasingly rare taking many decades to achieve master status. Our silversmiths have created many of the world’s most iconic and important silver pieces. Each sculpture will be made from sterling silver and will take several months to create upon minting the NFT, each one bearing the London Asprey assay mark. The 261 sculptures feature a large high gloss base hand painted in the colours of Asprey and Bugatti, reflecting the history and partnership to come.
“We have invested heavily in new technology and hired additional silversmiths to expand our workshop capabilities to ensure the La Voiture Noire collection is a masterpiece of the future. Bugatti and Asprey’s combined rich history will be reflected in the beautiful sculptures and artwork that I’m sure will be passed onto many generations to come. This is just the beginning of the Asprey x Bugatti partnership”.
Ali Walker, Chief Creative Officer at Asprey’s Studio
