One of my first major designer handbag purchases was a Bottega Veneta bag on a trip to Venice, Italy. It was a dream in every way; it was my first trip to Italy, the weather was immaculate and the store was beautiful. I picked a classic Bottega Veneta tote, and from that moment on, I’ve been hooked on BV. The leather is still some of the softest and most luxurious on the market, and the designs are subdued yet elegant.
The combination of ayers snakeskin, Nappa leather and Bottega Veneta’s famed intrecciato on the new collection of Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Nappa Ayers Handbags has me obsessing right now. I love the different materials paired together, which results in a beautiful, luxurious contrast. A tote and a messenger bag have been given this treatment trifecta, and while the tote would be a standout piece, the crossbody messenger is truly my latest obsession.
Offered in three colorways (nero, new red and trefle), the messenger adds a twist on one of the hottest trends of the season, a compact shoulder bag. I actually think the green lures me in most, providing a young and spunky touch to an already stunning piece. I could carry this bag from day to night with the greatest of ease. The tote is $3,750 while the messenger is $2,250 both via Bottega Veneta.
