According to Marco Costa, Boca do Lobo’s Creative Director the partnership has been an important milestone for the brand, giving it an international presence.
He added, “When we were first approached by Universal, we hadn’t fully grasped the size of contributing towards a project like a Hollywood blockbuster. Meeting with some of the set designers, such as Scott Baker – a big name in Hollywood and the industry – was an incredibly rewarding experience. Their team explained what they were looking for, from feeling, to some of the important details which needed to be found on set which could reveal more about the characters. In the end, we swapped some ideas, and I made a few suggestions based on what we discussed. It was great because there was a definite consensus with the design and materials we looked at, playing a lot with brass, and small luxurious details which subtly reveal taste and appetite for quality. I’m anxious to see how the pieces will play out in the sequels.”
