Alexander Wang and Bvlgari have teamed up for a limited-edition handbag collection, blending Wang’s cool kid approach with the Italian jeweler’s luxury heritage. Titled Serpenti Through the Eyes of Alexander Wang, the glamorous collaboration presents a new iteration of Bvlgari’s Serpenti Forever Bag as well as other silhouettes, featuring the signature serpent head jewel. The Alexander Wang x Bvlgari collection is the latest installment of Bvlgari’s Serpenti Through the Eyes of series–which began in 2017 with shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood–and will be released on September 7, 2019.
Consisting of six handbag styles, the options in the new capsule are endless with each one available in a range of luxe materials and sizes. Natural python and shiny lizard make for timeless statement bags, underscoring the Serpenti collection’s reptilian motif. Classic styles include a shoulder bag, duette, shopping tote, and satchel, while new silhouettes brought by Wang, such as the Belt Bag, take an edgier approach playing on functionality and novelty. The Belt Bag includes two detachable straps, a detachable handle, and two serpent closures, making it a convertible option that can be worn as a crossbody bag, fanny pack, or over the shoulder. Transformation is a key feature for the Minaudière bag, too. The new style references Bvlgari’s heritage as a jeweler through its square jewelry box-like shape and its Serpent bracelet attachment.
Wang’s muse Hailey Bieber fronts the campaign for the capsule, appearing in a sparse display case with the new Triplette shoulder bag as the main feature in one shot. In another, the model poses with the mint green Duette bag, complete with two gold serpent head closures.
The Alexander Wang x Bvlgari capsule collection will launch in September 2019.
