British designer Matthew Williamson is best known for bright, modern prints, and ultraluxury brand Bvlgari is best known for very, very expensive things, so it follows logically that a handbag collaboration between the two would result in a somewhat more modern step for the old Italian label. Williamson brought his signature patterns to several bags for the Matthew Williamson for Bvlgari Spring 2011 handbag collection, but he also managed stay true to his aesthetic in a slightly more muted way with the use of metallic-finished embossed leather. This collection is strongest in its small bags and clutches, where a little dose of pattern or texture goes a long way.
