Bulgari ’s iconic Serpenti Forever bags, with their signature enameled snake-head clasp, are reinterpreted through the visionary eyes of shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood, globally renowned for his irreverently feminine shoe designs.
This collaboration makes sense artistically because both Bulgari and Nicholas Kirkwood draw their inspiration from innovation, architectural design, and graphic forms. They are both bold, unconventional, and daring in their creativity.
“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.”- Nicholas Kirkwood
