Bvlgari x Mary Katrantzou

Such a treat for the weekend to indulge in! I am delighted to show you one of the most beautiful collaborations ever with BVLGARI, «Serpenti: Through the eyes of Mary Katrantzou».

My dear friend Mary Katrantzou gives her own take to BVLGARI’s Serpenti, as a symbol of spellbinding metamorphosis for this exclusive capsule collection. Today, she sent me a beautiful message on Whats app: «I would be so happy if you would be part of this story, to celebrate this collaboration and our partnership with Natalia Vodianova to support the “Naked Heart Foundation” by sharing this message of optimism

Crafting joy through Haute Couture craftsmanship, Mary introduces three new styles – the Serpenti Metamorphosis bag, the Serpenti Metamorphosis Handle bag and the Serpenti Metamorphosis minaudière – completed by a selection of textiles.

«I wanted to first think about what Serpenti meant to me, through my own eyes. Serpenti to me is a symbol of femininity, transformation and rebirth. It’s symbolic nature dating back to Ancient Roman and Greek mythology. The Serpenti sheds its skin to allow for further growth and this idea of metamorphosis became the inspiration for our collaboration. Everyone experiences their own journey of growth and we all go through some type of metamorphosis through life. It is the reason Serpenti holds so much meaning to me.» – Mary Katrantzou

The official launch date for this capsule collection is April 15th.
Bravo, Mary, you never stop to amaze me!

LoL, Sandra

Jewel Crush: Serpenti by Bulgari

Bulgari Serpenti

Today, I would like to show you my new jewel crush: Bulgari‘s 2012 Serpenti collection which will be available starting this summer at all of the Italian brand’s boutiques.

I had a sneak preview and fell immediately in love with the pink gold bracelet and ring that are characterised by the famous stylised spiral form. The core of each jewel is constituted by an internal gold spring that ensures its extraordinary flexibility. Each individual scale vaunts a sumptuous surface of diamond pavé. A rubellite adorns the “reptile’s head”.

L1000734

Don’t those two pieces just look divine?! Loved them so much that it was hard to take them off…
But unfortunately this beauty has its price. Below you can find all the details.

Dear Santa, please be good to me!

LoL, Sandra
