The Latest Luxury Bag Drop to Covet

Providing a seriously luxe take on literal arm candy, BVLGARI’s latest collection of leather goods and accessories – titled Oasis – is inspired by the brand’s icon, the serpent and the concept of metamorphosis as seen in the snake’s ability to endlessly change its skin.

The nod to the transformative power of the serpent takes shape in amplified proportions, unconventional material combinations, maxi elements and playful details, but also through key motifs of the maison’s heritage, reinterpreted in unexpected ways.

Highlights of the highly covetable offering include a spectrum of opulent, tactile finishes from patent leather and python to raffia and blown-out quilting, and a playful yet still sophisticated palette inspired by a “magical pink sunset”. 

Decadent details, another BVLGARI signature, came in the form of jewel-like serpent heads acting as both adornment and as functional fastenings, and chain straps in snake-like, classic or matte-painted variations.

Whether you’re a card-carrying Slytherin, or just partial to a few python accessories, check out Oasis at BVLGARI’s newly opened Queen Street, Auckland flagship.

STYLE Editors Dissect the Golden Globes ‘Red Carpet’

Awards season was always going to look different this year, with COVID restrictions necessitating a heavily socially distanced take on what would normally be some of the most highly attended A-List events of the showbiz calendar.

But while it’s always difficult to be the first one off the mark, today’s Golden Globes ceremony set a solid bar for the weeks ahead, with many ‘attendees’ rising to the occasion of a digital ‘red carpet’, Zooming in from their homes in full Hollywood glam.

Here’s who we’re taking inspo from next #FormalFriday…

They say Emily in Paris didn’t deserve any gongs (or noms for that matter) but Lily Collins killed it in the style stakes if you ask me. I love the level of detail in this embroidered Saint Laurent gown, as well as her show-stopping Cartier jewels. – Ashley Wallace, culture editor

She looks unreal in the dress alone, but with its statement sleeves and regal train, the dramatic proportions of Anya Taylor-Joy’s matching overcoat take this emerald green Dior Haute Couture look to best-dressed territory. Celeb stylist extraordinaire Law Roach strikes again. – Phoebe Watt, associate editor

Count. Me. In. For every part of Julia Garner’s knockout GG look – from the black and white Prada dress with the plunging V neckline and ‘20s inspired detailing to the complementary chunky jewels and absolutely flawless makeup by Hung Vanngo (that glossy red lip!) to the perfect French twist finished with a crystal hair pin. *chef’s kiss* – Josie Steenhart, sub-editor

It’s very Chanel, but I also love the whimsical nature of Daisy Edgar-Jones’ daisy lace (how fitting!) number, even more so because she appears to be jumping on a bed and touching the roof in playful celebration while wearing it, which I can get down with. Sometimes awards looks can seem so static and statuesque – particularly as this year most are solely captured for the ‘gram, it’s nice to see some real joy and emotion, even though she didn’t win her nominated category.

A post shared by Elle Fanning (@ellefanning)

Of course if you are going for the perfectly poised look, my second choice would be Elle Fanning in icy Gucci. It’s a shame she had no red-carpet to walk because this look was perfectly ‘Old Hollywood’ without looking fussy, with the dress, the jewels, the hair and makeup all coming together like a dream. – Megan Bedford, beauty editor
