Meet the sea­son’s new Bul­gari bags, and a young Malaysian de­signer to watch

ELLE (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

Bul­gari has al­ways ex­celled in com­bin­ing pol­ish and edge, and their ex­per­tise in this mat­ter is now win­ning hearts with their sleek ac­ces­sories col­lec­tion. The house is rock ’n’ rolling into the new sea­son with bold, sat­u­rated brights and metallics, ac­cented with stars and agate. The clas­sic Ser­penti For­ever flap bag re­ceives an up­date in jewel tones and new tex­tures: polka dot­ted elaphe, python slicked in sil­ver coat­ing, glit­ter­ing galuchat and quilted calf leather picked out in mi­cro studs.

Then there’s the new Di­vas’ Dream bag, in­spired by the ex­ist­ing Di­vas’ Dream jewellery col­lec­tion and in­cor­po­rat­ing the same el­e­gant fan-shaped mo­tif into an enamel pen­dant clo­sure. In quilted nappa leather dot­ted with pal­la­dium studs or python hand-dap­pled with bronze foil, the Di­vas’ Dream is beau­ti­ful, but also prac­ti­cal, with a roomy body and long chain and leather strap de­signed with busy city girls in mind.

And of course Bul­gari called on Bella Ha­did for am­bas­sador duty – the model is also the face of the house’s new fra­grance, Goldea the Ro­man Night, and her star is well on its way to go­ing su­per­nova. Her brand of cool and in­ten­sity is per­fect for the rock ’n’ roll vibe of the col­lec­tion; look at her whip­ping her hair and swing­ing a tan­ger­ine­bright Ser­penti For­ever and tell me you don’t want one too.
