BVLGARI Taps AMBUSH's Yoon for a Limited-Edition Range of Serpenti Handbags and Accessories
Unveiled through a campaign lensed by Tyler Mitchell and modeled by Ellen Rosa, Bella Hadid and Xiao Wen Ju.
Having collaborated with Alexander Wang last year, BVLGARI has now teamed up with AMBUSH for a collection of limited-edition leather goods. The range is part of the luxury house’s ongoing “Serpenti Through the Eyes Of” series, which kicked off in 2017.
Shot by Tyler Mitchell and styled by Carlos Nazario, the campaign features models Ellen Rosa, Xiao Wen Ju and Bella Hadid carrying the Serpenti Forever bag reimagined by Yoon. “For this capsule collection, I wanted to express the bold and contemporary character of Serpenti. Snakes are wondrous and fascinating creatures of nature but with BVLGARI, they also became a symbol of glamour in constant evolution. Natural beauty meets human creation, all guided by a contemporary aesthetic,” the Tokyo-based designer shared in a press release.
Taking inspiration from the Tree Python, a snake found in Southeast Asia and known for its striking colors, the creative delivers three new styles including the Serpenti shoulder bag, belt bag and Serpenti Minaudière clutch. Each silhouette, dressed in monochromatic tones, sports a snakehead closure along with the two label’s branding. The fashion accessories highlight versatility with different styling options using detachable shoulder straps. The collection also features small leather goods like a heart-shaped coin case and cardholders.
