For Spring 2011, the Bottega Veneta Cigar Cocco Lave Large Cabat will be released. This bag is the ultimate Cabat and my current weekend obsession.
For Spring 2011, Bottega Veneta decides to stick with clean white intrecciato leather along with frayed accents, leaving us with a bag that looks a tad unfinished.

It’s approximately 27 degrees outside in Atlanta right now, and when you consider that we’re usually in the mid-50s in December, I’m sure you can understand how much of a shock that was when I left the house this morning. I’m currently wearing double layers and huddled under a blanket, but I’m also hoping that the sunny, cheerful Bottega Veneta Large Check Shoulder Bag can help keep me warm.

Looking at the Bottega Veneta Snakeskin and Papier Elongated Knot Clutch makes it exceptionally clear to me why I’m a writer instead of a designer. Not only would I have never thought to combine purple-navy snakeskin and metallic green foil on a single clutch, but if someone had suggested it to me, I probably would have told them to think harder and come up with a better idea.

It is barely fall in my neck of the woods. In fact, the high temperature yesterday was 85 and I wore flip flops to the mall. We’ve yet to experience our first cold snap in Atlanta, despite the fact that mid-October is approaching quickly, and already fashion wants me to start thinking about spring.

While the entirety of Italian fashion is busy making itself over in technicolor, leave it to Tomas Maier and Bottega Veneta to step back for a moment to remind us all of the not-insignificant charms of a functional, neutral, well-made luxury bag.

Can I just tell you all that this picture made me want to run over to Bottega Veneta and buy every single wallet shown?! The kaleidoscope of colors and materials makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop. Only this is a luxury leather goods candy shop, the best kind of shop in my opinion.

Sure, alligator or crocodile versions of the highly collectable Bottega Veneta Knot Clutches might be enough to satisfty the luxury lust for some people, but for those who want something a bit more unique, the Bottega Veneta Sterling Silver Knot Clutch is just the ticket.

As seen last night at a private cocktail hour for the Miami Fashion Week SWIM: The Bottega Veneta S.O. Nero Intrecciato Karung Stretch Knot Clutch.

I’m not the kind of person who’s prone to inappropriate effusiveness or quick superlatives, but I’m not sure what other way to approach the Bottega Veneta Uniform Cocco Lave Briefcase. Superlatives were made for this bag.
