Bottega Veneta Aquatre Bags - Christmas Ornaments, BV-Style!

♪On the eighth day of Bottega Veneta we have a great gift, this simple woven bag in many colors that will give your wardrobe a lift! ♪

The Aquatre Bag from Bottega Veneta is already proving to be a big hit. The reason behind this bag being a success is rather simple. The bag is inherently plain while staying true to its Bottega Veneta roots. The Bottega Veneta Aquatre Bags feature Intrecciato Nappa leather in a variety of cruise collection colors.

There are two versions of the bag, one with a longer shoulder strap and one with double top handles. Our vote goes to the longer strap, which makes this an accessible messenger bag. Let’s go over the pros and cons.

Pros: Intrecciato leather, suede lining, hidden interior zip pocket, cell phone compartment, press stud closures, sleek shape, light weight.

Cons: Shallow depth, which does not fit large amounts of content. It was purposely designed to be flat, which may pose a disadvantage to those of you who like to pack your purses.

The folks at Bottega found a way to bring us a small, stylish, leather bag (dimensions are 13.7 X 12.9 inches). The Aquatre Bag goes for $1290 via Bottega Veneta.

Bottega Veneta Neon Knots

“On the seventh day of Bottega Veneta neon colors shine bright, in the classic Knot clutch it’s a sheer delight!”

From the moment I laid eyes on the vibrant Bottega Veneta Knot in neon lizard skin, I was hooked. The pairing of neon pink, orange, and yellow lizard skin with oxidized silver hardware results in a scintillating optical feat. This Bottega Veneta Knot Clutch screams out FUN, offering the much needed pop of color that our little black dresses or jeans and plain tops desire. (more…)

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Nappa Tote

♪On the sixth day of Bottega Veneta dive under the sea, with the color of this Intrecciato tote named Anemone! ♪

Is the color of this supple leather bag blue or purple? The color is officially deemed Anemone, which is the genus name of 120 species of flowering plants. The name may be more familiar with the word sea placed before it, which instantly leads me to think of Finding Nemo. Anyway, back to the bag…

The Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Nappa Tote is a small bucket bag with two tubular handles and strips of black Intrecciato leather atop the supple Nappa leather. A simple shape is dressed up with the combination of smooth with woven leather and hidden wire piping to help keep the shape of the bag. The inside of the tote features a zip pocket, cell phone compartment, and suede lining. Keep in mind the dimensions are not overly spacious, measuring 12.1 X 9.4 X 4.3 IN. Buy through Bottega Veneta for $1850.

The Bottega Veneta San Marco bag was one of my personal favorites from the fall line. This bag is a piece of intricate craftsmanship, showcasing every bit of design ingenuity that Bottega Veneta offers. Individual straps of leather are bonded to Karung and twisted which gives us this effect. The shape and overall style of this bag lends it being more of a classic. (more…)

Bottega Veneta Gladiola Caiman Sandal

♪On the fifth day of Bottega Veneta we must totally get, a pair of sandals that are sexy and the perfect fit! ♪

As we continue through our twelve days of Bottega Veneta, this is the last pair of shoes we will be bringing you. This shoe is love at first sight. The perfect amount of sass and class are combined to make the Bottega Veneta Gladiola Shiny Caiman Sandal completely lust-worthy.

This sexy, strappy sandal will be sure to catch the attention of each passerby with its elevated platform bottom. Perfect for dressing up or down, these sandals will transition from day to night. My favorite aspect is the Caiman crocodile straps, which add the perfect bit of dimension. Day 5 is truly a good day, don’t you agree?

Buy through Bottega Veneta for $1350.

Bottega Beach Accessories

♪On the fourth day of Bottega Veneta let’s hit the beach, with a tote and sandals, you will need each!♪

Add a little simplicity to your life with the Bottega Veneta Nero Sardegna Canvas Tote Bag. This Cruise 2009-10 bag features a large body, 16.4″ X 12.5″ X 12.5″, and the option of double canvas handles or chic metal chain shoulder straps with leather muff. We like this bag as a beach bag option, for the warm summer days and vacations. Buy through Bottega Veneta for $980.

Bottega Veneta Wallets
♪ On the second day of Bottega Veneta we can not resist: wallets and cases hard to miss! ♪

Continuing with our Twelve Days of Bottega Veneta, we are at Day 2. And day two brings us an array of wallets, coin purses, and card cases. We love the colors of the karung skin, a type of snakeskin, on these items. Karung is gradually becoming a favorite not only of Bottega Veneta but also of shoppers.

I was gifted a card case a few years ago and I have not stopped using it. It may be a small item, but the usability factor is major. There is also the ‘High-Tech’ case, for the fashionable person who loves to listen to their iPod. My pick of the pack is still the card case. I would not mind having the entire lot.

Details from top: Truffle Intrecciato Shiny Karung Coin Purse $280, Pourpre Intrecciato Shiny Karung Nappa High-Tech Case (for ipods, etc.) $460, Fever Intrecciato Shiny Karung Nappa Document Case $560, and Intrecciato Shiny Karung Business Card Case in Fever, Pourpre and Truffle $360.
