Bulgari-Serpenti-bracelet-watch-1967Earlier this month, we ushered in the Year of the Snake with Chinese New Year’s celebrations around the globe. So we thought it would be fun to share ways of incorporating the stylish style of the sinuous snake into your wardrobe this year.

And, anyone who wants some glamorous reptilian inspiration need only stop by Bulgari in New York City. Through March 6 in the New York flagship store at 730 Fifth Avenue, the luxury firm will be showcasing their historic Serpenti jewels including snake bracelets, belts, watches and rings made by Bulgari in last 70 years. Gems include this stunning bracelet watch from 1967, pictured above. The exhibit also includes images of famous fashion icons wearing the pieces such as Elizabeth Taylor, Marisa Berenson and Veruschka.

    I love this and believe I am in fashion this year just for being myself, a Snake. It is said that a Snake in the house means the family will not starve. In more detail, it’s the Year of the Female Water Snake, which sounds extra auspicious.
    Each of the 12 animals of the Chinese (and other Asian countries) zodiac has 5 elements: metal, water, wood, fire, earth. I learned more about this in a charming children’s novel: THE ARCHER’S QUEST by Linda Sue Park. The archer of the title is an ancient Korean king.

    Oh, what fun. One never knows where you will go next, but it’s always kicky and glam.
