Old and new; clas­sic and mod­ern – fash­ion’s di­chotomies are per­fectly re­flected in Bul­gari’s Diva bag. A true clas­sic, it was in­spired by pro­tag­o­nists of Fifties’ style, La Dolce Vita, and all its rich sym­bol­ism. Em­body­ing the golden era of fem­i­nin­ity, it stands apart in its ver­sa­til­ity and mod­ern in­sou­ciance.

Aes­thet­i­cally, Bul­gari has in­jected its sig­na­ture el­e­ments into the Diva bag while keep­ing to its roots in jew­ellery mak­ing. The bag is cut in the shape of an over­sized pill, us­ing a tech­nique sim­i­lar to dress-tai­lor­ing. Leather is ap­plied to a wooden struc­ture, en­sur­ing the per­fect bal­ance of vol­ume. Crocodile leather is sub­jected to the Agatatura process, giv­ing it a smooth and bright fin­ish akin to a pre­cious stone. The Ser­penti mo­tif, which has be­come syn­ony­mous with the leg­endary jew­ellery brand, adorns the clasp.

Avail­able in blue topaz, emer­ald green, tea rose, rasp­berry pink or del­i­cate aqua, its fresh colours hit all the right notes for sum­mer. While the con­trast­ing in­ner lin­ing and pocket-size mir­ror add charm, car­ried cross-body the clutch-cum­sling bag’s youth­ful magic re­ally comes into play. Wear with a white boyfriend shirt and jeans to get into a Parisian state of mind, or ar­rive ir­rev­er­ent with a jersey dress. In that spirit, why don’t you … get two Diva bags and pair them with your coolest train­ers?

Diva bags, both from Bul­gari. Jersey top; and jersey skirt, both from Car­ven. Sneak­ers, Nike.

Diva bag, Bul­gari
