Serpui Marie: Luxury Handbags


These bold and colorful handbags by Serpui Marie are inspired by the tropical gardens of Brazil and are handcrafted in Serpui’s São Paulo atelier. Each clutch features stunning mosaic inlay of mother-of-pearl shells collected in Brazil and Asia. These one-of-a-kind clutches are covered on the inside with luscious gold brocade and is small enough to fit comfortably in your hand.

Serpui Marie says: “We love the beach. I wanted to bring an element from the beach, and make it glamorous.”  The bags feature several lovely designs like sleeping owl, giraffe, zebra, kissing birds and more that are constructed by attaching tiny pieces of the sea shells, and layering them on top of the resin base. The 'sleeping owl' box clutch is available here.
