Snakes have found a place in the mythological tales and biblical texts with their mystical character.

Here’s a look at a serpentine collection in bags that will evoke enigma and allure. Snakes have found a place in the mythological tales and biblical texts with their mystical character.

When it comes to dreams, these slithering reptiles which might look draconian to some, often manifest good omen. There is an enigma around them that makes serpentine totems fit to be embedded in high-end jewellery and accessories like bags which gives a statement look from the view of fashion.This month, Bulgari has roped in Greek designer Mary Katrantzou to reinvent its charismatic Serpenti Bag which is part of the series Serpenti Through The Eyes Of. This latest collaboration has resulted in the making of three new styles of bag namely: The Serpenti Metamorphosis Bag, Serpenti Metamorphosis Handle Bag and Serpenti Metamorphosis minaudiere.

This month, Bulgari has roped in Greek designer Mary Katrantzou to reinvent its charismatic Serpenti Bag which is part of the series Serpenti Through The Eyes Of.

Coming to each of the designs, the Metamorphosis bag is the most embellished one in the series with a snakehead in the middle and a web of naturally beautiful elements like butterflies and flowers surrounding the head. The bag appears like a piece of high-end jewellery with its crustal embeds and is available in Pink, Green and Black and Ivory colours. It can be taken in a crossbody manner and through a handle as well. The interiors include three compartments and a removable and adjustable brass snake body-shaped chain. Its dimensions include 7.1 X 5.9 X 3.7 inches.

This bag has a unique feature in its handle showing serpent in motion. Made in Nappa leather, its top handle features gold plated brass hardware.

The other bag in the series includes the Top Handle bag. As the name suggests it has a unique feature in its handle showing serpent in motion. Made in Nappa leather, its top handle features gold plated brass hardware. This bag comes with one compartment, a removable handle and a detachable shoulder strap and is available in Red, Beige, Black, Sky Blue and Ivory colours. Its dimensions are 7.5 X 5.9 X 2.4 inches.

Coming to the third style, Minaudiere, it is not for the faint-hearted given its bold design. The bag is shaped like a snakehead with crystal enamel snake scales. What adds a creative look is the crystal-studded eyes in the serpent’s body. The dimensions of the bag include 5.1 X 7.1 inches and it is available in multicolour. The three styles exude maximalist design, three-dimensional ornate embroidery and pictorial usage of natural elements like Snake that makes them stand out. However, the small dimensions of the bag limit their utility as they are more apt for adornments.
