There are few bags as beautiful as what Bvlgari creates and though many first think of the brand for its exquisite jewelry, those who love the bags are part of a growing and very loyal fanbase. And that is with good reason. I see a lot of bags, naturally, but very few tactfully combine the art of jewelry and leather as well as Bvlgari.
There is a constant want for designer bags that aren’t what you see on everyone, and Bvlgari fills that need. Here is a closer look at my personal favorite bags from the brand, the Bvlgari Serpenti Forever bags. Each features distinctive lines along with the iconic snake head closure which is the house emblem. The brass gold-plated snake head features black and white enamel with green malachite eyes. It works beautifully on the bags, offering a focal point that exquisitely stands out.
The Bvlgari Serpenti Forever Crossbody Bag (also pictured in the hero above) is the popular crossbody version of this bag, which offers a structured top handle as well as a chain and leather shoulder strap. The exterior features smooth calf leather panels, in a perfectly pretty rosa di francia hue of pink, that overlay to create a unique design element which adds dimension. When you open the bag, you’re met with three compartments and the back offers a small open pocket with an attached metal mirror, which is a really luxurious touch. The shoulder strap, which utilizes a snake-shaped chain along with leather where it will sit on your shoulder, is both removable and adjustable. Dimensions are 7.1″ x 5.9″ x 3.7″. Buy via Bvlgari for $2,450.
There are different sizes of this house staple, and if you are looking for a new mini bag, the Serpenti Forever Mini Bag is a stunner. The design elements transfer from each size of this bag, including the leather panels that sit atop the exterior of the bag. As the size is more compact, the interior offers two compartments and the back also has the open pocket with a mirror. I know we all have our cellphones and check mirrors via our camera on our phone, but a mirror in your bag is far more seamless and feels more classic and intimate. Dimensions are 6.5″ x 4.3″ x 2″. Price is $1,750 via Bvlgari.
