BVLGARI presents SS2020 leather goods and accessories collection, reimagining glam rebel mood with Serpenti Jewel-inspired details reimagined into a Glam Rebel mood, the power of red injecting charisma into new styles an imaginary world taking flight with magical fluttering wings: for SS2020 BVLGARI casts a new spell with Serpenti, infusing its creative savoir-faire into an eclectic and multifaceted collection. Jewellery artistry and Leather Goods expertise come together in the Glam Rebel mood. Glinting chains dressing exquisite leathers or morphing into brilliant geometrical patterns, gems turning into edgy studs and ultra-luxe skins shining as the most precious coloured stones: from Serpenti Forever to Serpenti Diamond Blast, BVLGARI adds a hint of irreverence to its Leather Goods icons employing unexplored craftsmanship techniques. Even the XXS option, the new Serpenti Micro Cabochon bag glows with preciousness, with prized skins dressing the mini-version of this ultra soft model.
Jewel-like craftsmanship, gem inspired studs and an unmissable touch of glitter: the Glam Rebel mood of the Collection leads BVLGARI’s irreverent spirit in crafting trailblazing jewels at the core of its Leather Goods artistry.
Wearing a glinting dress of woven gourmette chains is the new Serpenti Forever Chain Pavé. Applied in the shape of BVLGARI’s iconic diamond pattern, the metallic lace mixes up its golden sheen with the sleek elegance of Smooth Calf Leather frames – a meticulous process requiring 12 hours of work of a skilled artisan for each panel, just to create and adapt the chain design to the model. Available both as a shoulder bag in Black Calf Leather and as a cross body bag with top handle in White Calf Leather, the season’s newcomer elevates day to night styles with an injection of jewel-like sophistication.
Like in a mirror, the Serpenti Forever Graphic Chain Pavé reflects the same diamond design with switched materials: four gourmette chains are intertwined with each other, creating a flat golden ribbon that outlines the geometric Black Calf Leather motif. Practical, uncompromisingly cool and versatile in its look, the piece is the perfect 24 hours bag, for women always on the move.
Whispers of delicate chains make a loud statement on the Serpenti Diamond Blast Whispy Chain. An injection of jewellery charm into a sharp and squared style, the new bag reimagines the diamond motif with a texture made of two kinds of chains – a sophisticated technique requiring 12 hours of artisanal work for a single panel. To be carried over the shoulder or cross-body with the practical chain and leather strap adaptable in two length options, the bag comes in White Agate or Black Calf Leather: everyday glam with an urban edge and modern wear – with everything appeal. Also available in its miniaturized alter-ego, the Serpenti Diamond Blast Micro is an ultra-small expression of glamour with a playful edge: to be worn over the shoulder, cross-body or as a statement belt bag, this mini jewel adds a hint of refinement to any urban-chic look.
In the universe of Leather Goods, ultra-luxe skins are like the one-of-a-kind gems in the world of jewellery: blending its two fields of expertise and adding a rock-chic approach, BVLGARI introduces the Serpenti Forever Gem Python. Stepping out with a dangerously precious combination of Smooth Black Calf skin and back-cut Python skin, the classic cross-body shape with top handle glints with multi-shaped jewelled studs in onyx and mother-of-pearl. An extra sheen is given by the almost liquid, metallic finishing of the bag’s rare skin, achieved through a special colouring technique.
For SS2020, Calf Leather claims the same attention as the most cherished materials: with its mosaic of hexagonal scale-inspired onyx studs and mother-of-pearl appliqués, the Serpenti Forever Gem Calf Leather in Rosa di Francia infuses with glam rebel feel and jewellery charm one of the timeless classics of the snake family. A new way to play with gems, for an around-the-clock look with a defiant edge.
All that is beautiful glitters: drawing on its most precious skins and leathers palette, BVLGARI infuses an extra-sheen to an array of Serpenti styles, lending a jewel aura to each piece. Bright as diamonds, vibrant as colourful gemstones, the new Serpenti Forever Crystal Galuchat is covered in a mesmerizing glitter glaze in Flash Amethyst, brightening up the skin’s minute grains evoking a pavé setting. As a precious gemstone, Galuchat is a very difficult material to treat and requires the careful touch of expert hands. Showy and elegantly eccentric, this glowing Serpenti rendition is a statement jewellery piece as much as a handbag.
Freezing with its power of attraction at every gaze, the Serpenti Forever Ice Glam Python shoulder bag is the standout piece of the season. Impenetrable and refreshing as ice, shiny and precious as white gold, this one-off style is achieved through ingenious craftsmanship. An artisan recreates the natural livery effect through a UV print after having decoloured the skin, and a white pigment is then spread on the bag’s central part to create a shade on shade contrast with the silver shine on the rest of the body.
