Slithering charm: Bulgari’s Serpenti Viper bag

Lethal staple

Bulgari enchants with a scaly addition to the Serpenti family this season

Meet the new little bag that has coiled up our hearts this season: The Bulgari Serpenti Viper, the Italian house's latest member to join the Serpenti arm candies. Inspired by the build and triangle-shaped head of a viper, the compact body of the handbag is perfect for women looking to tote around their everyday essentials in. And in a nod to the reptile's two lethal fangs, the snap closure is made of shining enamel and two malachite stones.

Conveniently slung or chicly carried, the Serpenti Viper retains the pull of its glossed-up exterior that comes in gleaming black, plum amethyst, teal topaz, desert quartz or royal sapphire. The arm candy's double flap cover sees the top layer gleaming with its black triangular parts that peer as the eyes of a viper. Its choice of smooth calf leather, gold-tinted python, tactile astrakhan or luxe croco are blended with the interior's Nappa lining that ensures plush safe-keeping. Now, the only hassle you'd have in scoring the season's fresh classic is taking your pick.
