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.
