Bulgari Diva’s Dream

Categories:Other Brands


A bag that’s so much more than its rather literal name, the Diva’s Dream was one that caught our eyes when we got up close with it during Bulgari’s recent Fall Winter 2017 presentation. A bag inspired by the Diva’s Dream line of jewellery pieces, the bag’s lock closure is interpreted from the arch pattern that is the highlight of the famed Italian jeweller’s signature collection.


Available in two sizes, the Medium (23 cm by 23 cm, SGD3630) is a great size that comes in 2 colours – Black and Linen Agate, but it was the former that really called out to us. Black works because it’s a colour that goes well with all your outfits (tried and tested), with the studs blending well against its quilted nappa leather body, providing just the right amount of character and attitude – something that pretty much describes a true Diva.

These square beauties will do well as an everyday bag thanks to its extra chain-and-leather strap that you can use to sling on or across your body, though in our honest opinion it should be one reserved for date nights and weekends when a little more dressing up is required. Coupled with the tone-on-tone enamel clasp that’s not too loud, the bag also comes in a Small size (SGD3200) which is slightly smaller at 18 cm by 18 cm. Smaller yes, but very cute with an additional variation available in an antique-bronzed python leather (SGD4590) that’s truly lush.

A truly unique piece from Bulgari that’s also a new silhouette for the brand, you can expect to see the Diva’s Dream available in boutiques from July 2017 in Singapore.

Bulgari launches skeleton version of the record-breaking Octo Finissimo Tourbillon

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

In 2014, Bulgari stole the show at Baselworld by introducing the record-breaking Octo Finissimo Tourbillon. The watch had set a new record for the world’s thinnest tourbillon with the movement measuring just 1.95 mm and a case thickness of a mere 5 mm. But in that timepiece, the watchmaker’s witchcraft of the ultra-thin tourbillon was hidden behind the dial. However, Bulgari has now introduced the skeletonized interpretation of this extraordinary watch.

The Bulgari BVL268 Finissimo caliber packs its 253 parts into a 32.60mm-wide and 1.95mm-thick wafer-thin layer and still holds the world slimness record. But adding to its complexity is its skeletonized structure and Bulgari did a little more than just remove the dial of the watch. A PVD coating has been applied on the bridges and main plate to increase the contrast and highlight the moving components inside the watch without disturbing the structural integrity of the movement. Water-resistant to 30 meters, the 40 mm case is crafted from platinum and enhanced by a platinum crown with ceramic insert. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is priced at €140,000 or about $124,000.

Available in a host of eye catching colors, Bulgari’s Serpenti Top handle bag is our must-have handbag this week. Its feminine shape is accentuated by the brass pink gold snake detail on the upper half of the frame and the crocodile leather adds a luxe touch. The Snake head closure is embellished with purple jade eyes and scales of oval-shaped green aventurine.

Though the hot pink Cerise shade is a sure winner, other memorable colors include Forget-me-not blue, Scarlet and Emerald green. Serpenti bags keep catching our eye! TheSerpenti Forever hobo bag had our attention back in March.

Taylor Swift Does Her Daily NYC Rounds with a Bulgari Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Taylor Swift Bulgari Isabella Rossellini Bag

Here’s Ms. Taylor Swift, taking her daily constitutional around the isle of Manhattan, carrying a sky blue Bulgari Isabella Rossellini Bag and wearing metallic Louboutins. Pricey handbag/cute dress/towering pumps is now T-Swift’s daily uniform. (I haven’t seen this girl in a pair of pants in at least two months.) You can find Taylor’s bag in burgundy red palmellato calf leather for$3,150 at Bulgari.

This is actually the second Bulgari bag we’ve written about in a week’s time (we recently saw Maggie Gyllenhaal carrying a Bulgari Serpenti Bag), which would be less notable if it weren’t a brand that we rarely spy celebs carrying in situations other than awards shows. Clearly, Bulgari is a brand on the rise, as of this week, at least from a handbag perspective.
