Guess what landed up in my inbox today to brighten a dull morning, and cause much mopping of drool dribbling down chin? These wonderful bags. And since I am such a nice girl, I am going to share them with you, for you to drool over too.
All from Bulgari. Since I am never going to be able to afford them unless they are being thrown away at sales with throw away prices (which will still have me counting out my small change, and checking with teeth in case any coins are not the real thing, but given the ridiculous thin metal junk that masquerades as official currency these days, its really hard to tell, and even cavitied teeth bitten delicately leave dents), the best I can do is ogle from afar. Like the street urchin staring into the delicatessen, nose pressed against the glass. Though that too would be tough given the dimensions of said nose which meant to be a proboscis and probably was what gave Rushdie inspiration for Saleem Sinai. Anyway. Digressions to one side. Here they are. And keep the drool mops handy.
And here go the cut pasted descriptions from the press release:
In the 1910 Collection the old art nouveau style advertising sign at the historic store on Via dei Condotti in Rome appears to be printed in contrast not only on leather but also on oiled linen and cotton canvas assembled with a chevron motif , the emblematic design formed by the continuous angular parentheses that recurin Bulgari tradition and that can be found in sketches and precious evening handbags from the early 1950’s. Trimmings and handles are made from calfskin and offered in three different colours: black, plum, and beige. This line also includes a model where the handle represents the ideal extension of the handbag,which is realized in an appropriately circular form. This model is embellished with a rich grip realised in two different tones of gold engraved with the name “S. Bulgari”.
offered in a new,wider version .The Twist model is also stylistically reinterpreted in the Twist String version, where the medallions are replaced by a pair of knotted laces that create leather undulations and ruffles in
purses with a bizarre and intriguing egg shape.
