4 THE CULT IN­VEST­MENT

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The List -

For the first time—in more ways than one—footwear de­signer Ni­cholas Kirk­wood ex­pands his reper­toire into the realm of hand­bags, as part of a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Bul­gari. In­spired by the house’s iconic snake-head clasp, the Ser­penti For­ever mo­tif gets a rock ’n’ roll twist with luxe riv­et­ing and un­ex­pected fab­ri­ca­tions. “I cre­ated the chevron pat­terns us­ing rub­berised studs, which have faceted ends that re­minded me of di­a­mond set­tings and some of the spec­tac­u­lar gem­stones I had seen in the Bul­gari High Jew­ellery ate­lier in Rome,” says the shoe de­signer.
