“That’s Amore” as the saying goes. But for Bulgari, that’s “Amoroma” this season, as the house unveils their latest creative concept for their SS ‘22 leather goods & accessories collection. With the title fusing “Amore” (which translates to love in Italian) and Roma (the birthplace of the house since being founded in 1884), the new lineup of tasteful treasures sees the capital of the nation as its one true source of undying beauty.

“You can see the love that Bulgari has for Rome as its greatest source of inspiration exudes from every perspective,” says Mireia Lopez Montoya, head of Bulgari’s accessories business unit. “An unending creative heritage powered up by fresh, new attitudes and unexpected metamorphosis of the emblematic Serpenti icon.” With a range of accessories that boast the brand’s core ethos in luxurious materials and finishes, the Serpenti full metal mesh mini bucket bag is living up to Bulgari’s gold standard in quality as the petite carryall is crafted in a precious metal material that undergoes a gold-plated bath and takes over eight hours of expert craftsmanship for completion. “Working with this type of mesh is very difficult,” says Montoya. “What we really wanted was to show its sinuosity and the wonderful sensation to the touch which reveals the preciousness of this bag, a small jewel to be worn.” And as the Eternal City continuously exudes creativity and endurance for the house, the Bulgari woman will always follow suit as she evolves for a modern tomorrow.
