Bulgari Serpenti Lookalikes – The Ultimate Collection

Bulgari Serpenti Lookalikes – The Ultimate Collection

In this week’s designer dupes we’ll be honing in on various forms of the Bulgari Serpenti dupe. The Bulgari Serpenti is a stylish, top of the line purse, but with price tags well in the thousands, not many can afford a purse that is so expensive.

The Bulgari fashion line was founded in 1884 by Sotirio Bulgari, a man of Greek heritage who lived in Rome. The company started off by creating silverware and decorative items but began producing jewelry in 1905. Later they would branch out, making leather goods, fragrances and more.

In Greek and Roman culture, there is a great deal of symbolic importance in the snake. It represents rebirth, healing, protection, strength, seduction and eternity. Because the snake has been such a powerful symbol in the culture of the designer, it would soon be incorporated into the company’s jewelry, hence the creation of the Serpenti line.

 

Creation Of The Bulgari Serpenti Bag

 

It wasn’t until 2012 that the Serpenti line began carrying over into Bulgari’s handbag designs. These bags featured clasps shaped like a snake’s head with scales matching the color of the bag and a gold chain serving as a strap. The bag soon became one of Bulgari’s most popular designs.

A variation of the Serpenti is its evening bag variation. Here, there are two small snakehead clasps that have a body connecting them. These form a sort of ring that you can wear around your wrist to carry the bag.

Many celebrities have been seen wearing the Serpenti bag including actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Julianne Moore. Moore was even featured in an advertisement for the bag when it first launched. In the ad, she was wearing Bulgari jewelry while holding the exotic animals. Various styles of the Serpenti bags were positioned around her.

In 2016, an update was made to the Serpenti Forever flap bag, one of the designer’s more popular models. These now featured a Quilted Scaglie motif, adding a stylish spin to the classic. The closure was also updated to a matte enamel as opposed to the more conventional shine enamel.

The Bulgari Serpenti purse is known for its serpent head clasp which is a mainstay feature. Other than that, colors and styles can vary wildly. You can get this purse in bold colors, neutrals and metallics. Other additions may include stitching, studs, gems and more.

The Bulgari Serpenti is available in a number of styles. These include:

Serpenti Forever: Likely one of the purse’s most popular models, the Serpenti Forever is a rectangular purse with a triangular flap that ends about half way down the length of the purse’s front.

Serpenti Hypnotic: Similar to the Forever in shape and style, the Hypnotic differs in its flap style. This features a square shaped flap that folds almost entirely over the purse, stopping about an inch from the handbag’s bottom.

Serpenti Viper: Though available in some solids, these purses are mainly featured in snakeskin and other animal prints. Differing from the traditional Serpentis, they do not feature the serpent’s head, but rather a snake print latch.

They are similar in shape and style to the other Serpentis but feature the shortest flap of the three, ending just about three inches from the top of the bag. The flaps also feature some layering as there is a black square background that serves as a base for a triangular flap that features the bag’s main color or print.

But now, without further ado, let’s have a look at some of the best Bulgari dupes on the market right now!

Why Buy A Bulgari Serpenti Dupe

 

No matter what style of Serpenti you choose, one thing that always remains the case for these fashion items; they come with a hefty price tag. A new purse can cost you upwards of $2000 depending on the size and style. While buying used can be a more affordable option, you also run the risk of the purse’s condition being compromised. That’s why buying a Bulgari Serpenti dupe is a great option.

Before continuing the discussion about the advantages of owning a dupe designer bag, let’s clear some things up. A dupe bag and a fake bag are two different things.

A dupe bag will offer the same features of the original design, so much so that it could be confused for the real thing. However, nowhere on the bag will it claim to be made by the actual designer of the bag. If that is the case, the bag will not be considered a dupe, but a fake.

Obviously, the biggest advantage of purchasing a dupe over a fake is the price. Women who are looking for luxury fashions can get copies at just a fraction of the price. A bag like the Serpenti can cost $2000 or more. By going with a dupe, you can get the look for as little as $25. Most dupes sell for less than $100.

While the carefully trained eye might notice certain small details of luxury designs that are not featured on dupes, the overall fashion is there.

When buying a dupe, one must be careful to buy from a reputable manufacturer to ensure the bag will be a quality look alike. Luckily, there are plenty of online resources that can give you information on where to buy the bag that you are after. Many websites will give you examples of the bags you want and show you side by side comparisons on great and affordable dupes.

If you are in the market for a designer handbag, and just don’t have the money to spend, there are some terrific options out there. When it comes to the Bugari Serpenti, there are a number of retailers you can buy from to get the look for less. Be fashionable without spending your entire life savings by finding out about your options in dupe fashions!
