Let’s not mince words about the handbags that went down the Bottega Veneta runway last week in Milan: I cannot recall ever seeing a runway collection that included so many different kinds of bags, all of them utterly beautiful. I’m not even that enormous of a Bottega fan and I was still awed by the details that went into all of them, from oversized crocodile hobos to the tiniest embellished knot clutches.

Adding a burst of color, the Bottega Veneta Lizard Knot Clutch is the perfect companion. Buy through Net A Porter for $1,980.

It is that time, the time for bright and cheery Bottega Veneta Spring 2010 colors. One of my favorites is orchid, which I am fairly certain is being used on this bag (though it is labeled as grape). And the bag this color is being splashed over is the Montaigne, a popular duffel shape bag from the house.

You might want to sit down, if you aren’t already. At first, I was really excited to see the Bottega Veneta Leather Fringe Shoulder Bag. But then, I saw it and I became extremely conflicted. As I’ve mentioned several times before, I am totally in love with the leather Bottega Veneta uses on its handbags.

We talk a lot about Bottega Veneta, and for good reason. They’re doing some of the most interesting things with some of the best materials on the marketplace, and their bags often have an element of visual trickery with them that I find delightful.

We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on some of the most beautiful Bottega Veneta handbags available. While I can’t get enough of the signature BV intrecciato woven leather design, I am always intrigued by some of the other intrecciato-less handbags available.

How can I begin to describe our final day of Bottega Veneta without typing in all caps followed by an absurd number of exclamation points?
