Bottega Veneta Fall 2014 Bags

Last season, Bottega Veneta’s runway handbag display was a little sparse for a brand that’s so widely known and beloved for its fine leather goods, and I couldn’t help but wonder if that meant the brand was attempting to shift more of the focus to Tomas Maier’s luxurious, elegant ready-to-wear. Based on Bottega Veneta’s Fall 2014 handbags, that seems to have been a seasonal variation instead of a new trajectory; over the weekend, Bottega’s Milan runway played host to a slew of beautiful bags, many in snakeskin.

The shapes are traditional, and split evenly between ladylike and businesslike – half short-strapped shoulder bags, half triple-gusset handheld satchels that are, for all intents and purposes, briefcases. They’re uniformly luxurious, though, especially when the snakeskins are rendered in neutral variations. Check out all the bags below.

    I think it works for the clutches but only for some of the bags.

    The first bag reminds me al LOT of the McQueen Heroin bag and a Pierre Hardy bag. The other bags aren’t that special either.

    Not keen on the bags that also have the handle on the front. For whatever reason they remind me of those old-school snake/lizard bags which have heads and limbs attached.
