Taurus started collaborations with some of the most important brands representing “Made in Italy” in the world. That’s how Taurus Bespoke Project was born. The initiative consists in the production of limited-edition bikes which will be sold exclusively through alternative channels. The bikes were designed in partnership with Design, Fashion and Lifestyle Italian brands. Taurus Bespoke Prokect’s firts product is the Taurus Corinto Excelsior Hotel Gallia model, created in collaboration with the famous hotel chain. These limited-edition luxury collection bikes are characterized by the timeless design of the famous Taurus Corinto model, coloured, this time, with an elegant glitter gray resembling the halls of the hotel.
The iconic Milan brand Excelsior Hotel Gallia and the historic brand of bikes Taurus have something in common: the passion for elegance, unique design and the “Made in Italy” style. So, they wish to offer their customers an exclusive touch of class. Thanks to the strength of these synergies, the two brands present their Taurus Corinto Excelsior Hotel Gallia limited edition.
The Corinto is Taurus’ most prestigious model, a timeless classic two-wheel lovers appreciate for its elegant design. It outstands for its details, such as the rod-brakes, the Taurus-branded brake levers, the chromed head of the fork, the armoured fenders, the handmade threadings, the front light matching the colour of the bike. The model also feature BROOKS B66 saddle, an original Taurus leather toolbox and a magazine rack. The model is available single-gear or with the famous Sturmey Archer three-speed hub gear. This special edition, dedicated to the Milan Hotel, wears its logo and was crafted in an elegant chromed gray, resembling the style of the hotel design.
The two special Corinto bikes for men and for women are exposed in the entrance hall of the hotel, beneath the monumental 30’s marble staircase, enriched with the spectacular Murano glass chandelier crafted by the Milan architect Marco Piva. The architect developed the whole restoration project of the hotel, which combines the Belle Epoque style with the best contemporary Made in Italy design.
“It is a great pleasure for us to collaborate with the Taurus brand and to promote the best features of the Made in Italy style in our hotel. We want to offer our guests the chance to get in touch with such a unique product” Marco Olivieri – General Manager Excelsior Hotel Gallia – says. Fabio De Felice, Taurus CEO, agrees with him: “The collaboration between the two brands, which represent the best of their respective fields, gives birth to a truly exclusive product. Our purpose is to renew and amaze, we like to reinvent ourselves taking inspiration from beauty and elegance. But what we like the most is to put people at the centre of our products. Corinto Taurus is a timeless jewel of our Historic Home. This bike will allow Excelsior Hotel Gallia guests to enjoy the city in a sober and elegant way”.
