《Bvlgari @ SS2012 Accessories Collection》

Bvlgari SS2012 accessories collection draw inspiration from the natural world while some items celebrates the nuances of rough, primordial materials like rock, fossils, minerals and crystals, the selection of bags and leather goods evoke the play of light and transparencies of water, source of all life and health, with maxi-bags in glossy karung minaudieres that sparkle with iridescent reflections. Patterns inspired by the natural world animate the ultra-soft Monete shoulder bags and alternate with weaves of the Leoni and Isabella Rosellini day bags, with the sculptural pleats of the new Monete totes, the exposed stitching of the Chandra and Serpenti lines, which can be used both day and night. To complete the look, brilliantly colored maxi foulards and captivating eyewear. 
The new season marks the official debut of this new line, which sees ancient coins, one of the most distinctive elements of Bulgari style since the 1950s, reappear in metal or colored glass reproductions on day bags and cocktail purses, bearing the profile of the nymph Arethusa, an homage to one of the most famous coins of the Magna Grecia.  Like collets on a jewel, the ample circular elements depicting a young woman wearing a lovely coiffure and stylish jewelry are set into the double woven metal grip like precious charms in the day bags, or transform into jewel-clasps in the evening bags.
 Noteworthy among the proposals for spring-summer are the Monete maxi bags, in both sack and bucket versions. The folds of the sack in sand-colored calfskin create an intricate motif that recalls the waving branches of a wind-blown willow, at the same time employing a honeycomb stitch, the most classic smocking technique. Equally sophisticated is the brand new version in glossy karung snakeskin. Fashionable and versatile, the strong point of the Monete bucket bag lies in the marvelous feel of the leather, a ‘cashmere effect’ calfskin that lends both suppleness and body to the model.
The Leoni accessories for spring-summer 2012 introduce a new mood that incorporates weaves and hand craftsmanship with bold natural colors. Avant-garde techniques and artisanal mastery triumph in the tinted, hand-woven raffia version, perforated with laser work. The ‘all-over’ effect of the fabric plays on the bright hues of coral and the more delicate tones of beige and clay.
Against the silence of North Africa, between Morocco and Tunisia, between endless dunes and sudden oases, stands the linear silhouette of the Isabella Rossellini handbags. Chalcedony, pink quartz and jade color the jewel-clasps of the bags with new pastel tones, combining with the hues of the internal linings, personalized with the actress’s signature. Strokes of white and brown mud distinguish the enamels that frame the semi-precious stones and stand out in contrast with the new chromatic proposals for SS2012. Three-dimensional suggestions adorn the Rossellini in clay patent leather. The wavy texture of the leather is obtained through a special procedure whereby the surface of the calfskin is first scored, then moistened; when it dries, it gradually retracts, creating a natural undulation that recalls the ridges formed by the wind on sand dunes. 
The shoulder straps and jewel-clasps inspired by the serpent – milestone of Bulgari style – are combined with a renewed desire for chromatic experimentation: from yellow and green to purple and amber, color has come back stronger than ever to the line of Serpenti bags. The new models have a unique construction of overlapping layers that help highlight their chromatic intensity. The visible stitching emphasizes the decisive, slightly retro shape.The maxi clasps come in new combinations of stones and colors: white and sky blue enamels are paired with amethyst eyes, while lapis blue stands out against a purple-white background of expertly hand-applied enamel. The versions in karung feature a new shiny effect and a more comfortable size that transforms them into practical day bags. Color coordinated pochette-wallets, embellished by stylish details, complete the look.
