Fashion & Style

MANILA, Philippines—In a recent sunny unveiling, the Philippines is looking to get a taste of Roman paradiso as global luxury brand BVLGARI proudly brings Italian summer to the Philippines with the Resort Collection 2021.

This brings in Limited Edition bags and matching textiles to the fore to celebrate the carefree and joyful spirit of the season with a nod to Roman ease and natural sophistication—perfect for days at the beach, and even in the city. The stars of this warm season are the Raffia bags, and the exuberant Canvas Tote Bags exclusively designed by Mary Katrantzou.

The raffia is a soft, nature-inspired material interpreted by BVLGARI with playfulness and sovereign craftsmanship. It dresses two styles of the famed Serpenti Diamond Blast: one with a top handle and thick gold chain strap, and the other with a flap handle. Extravagant beige fringes outline the bags, while the turquoise Calf Leather elements conjure an enchanting symphony between sand and sea, while the iconic snakehead closure features a shade-on-shade matte finishing.

Joining this Limited Edition raffia style is the BVLGARI Logo Bag. Practical and roomy yet exquisite in its elegance with its timeless silhouette, this squared bag displays richness of details from a maxi jewel-like decor crafted with golden chains, while the iconic BVLGARI logo embellishes the turquoise Calf Leather panel on the front, and the Calf Leather top handle and a detachable shoulder strap make it comfortable and easy to wear in two different sizes.

BVLGARI and Greek fashion designer Katrantzou also unravel a new chapter in their exciting collaboration with Special Edition Canvas Tote Bags—a true ode to summer with vibrant colors showing the endless metamorphosis of the Serpenti. Both in Aegean Topaz blue prints and black prints, this new style connects the fascinating symbolism of butterflies with the captivating transformative power of the snake.

To take the best holiday souvenir with you wherever you go, the Limited Edition silk shelley is the perfect en pendant with the raffia bags. A total glam look is achieved with its fine print and marine motives.

The Roman High Jeweler completes the Resort Collection with the BVLGARI 18-karat rose gold necklace set with malachite and mother-of-pearl elements. The necklace is an elegant fusion of culture and modernity, and has evolved into playful interpretations fit for the season.
