Don’t forget to visit the Bottega Veneta artisans who will be in NYC this week! For three days only, the brand’s artisans will be on hand to showcase the personalization service, Bottega Veneta Initials. The demonstration will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 25 and April 26, from 10:00am – 7:00pm and Sunday, April 27, from 12:00pm – 6:00pm, in the New York City flagship store at 699 Fifth Avenue.

Two years ago, Bottega Veneta introduced a personalization service, aptly named Bottega Veneta Initials. Vlad and I were part of the launch of this event in Italy and were able to see how the artisans from the Bottega Veneta atelier carefully added the letters to BV’s signature Intrecciato bags.
One of my favorite aspects of PurseBlog is the comments readers leave for us. It doesn’t mean I always agree, but I love to hear what people have to say about handbags, and many of our commenters are quite thought-provoking. One subject that tends to come up on different posts, time and time again, is brands that people say they would never carry for a variety of reasons.
My penchant for Prada has taken a significant upturn, mainly thanks to Scandal’s Olivia Pope. Liv dresses so elegantly yet always looks comfortable, and this combination is ideal to me. Her accessory game is spot-on, always relying on classic beauties, and her preference for Prada has caught the eyes of many handbag lovers.
Over the years, there have been so many great bags that have gotten away, and many of them still haunt me to this day. On top of that, plenty of bags are hard to track down even under ideal circumstances, like seasonal one-offs from my favorite designers or basically anything from Hermes.
When you hear the name Hermes, you probably think of the famed Birkin and Kelly bags. There are many other bags the leather house creates beyond those two icons, and most are fairly recognizable. Sometimes a true rarity pops up, though, and this time I ran into a bag I’ve never seen at Heritage Auctions.
