Luxury accessories brand Bulgari has unveiled the new Serpenti collection that was created with footwear icon Nicholas Kirkwood. Inspired by architecture and contemporary graphic elements, including a twist on the iconic snakehead clasp, the new line juxtaposes materials and colours — think black, white, pink spinel, royal sapphire and gold  while showcasing an artistry that is shared by the design duo.

Kirkwood attributed his creative stimulation, for the new collection, to two important events in Rome: his first visit to the maisons's jewellery atelier as well as the Serpenti Form Bulgari exhibition. "I created the chevron patterns using rubberised studs which have faceted ends that reminded me of diamond settings and some of the spectacular gemstones I had seen in the Bulgari High Jewellery atelier in Rome," said Kirkwood.
