Here at Purse Blog our yearning for more supple leather almost always leads us to Bottega Veneta. We adore the understated simplicity of the designs and can not get enough of the super soft and luxurious leather. When our bank accounts grow to exorbitant levels, we will have our office and homes decked out in Bottega Veneta leather. That is how much we love it.

Looks like Leighton Meester is Bottega Veneta’s latest muse. The stunning beauty continues to wear Bottega Veneta to red carpet events. While we adored her Bottega Veneta Nero Mineral Galuchat Knot she carried to the MTV VMA’s, we are equally as impressed with the luscious hue of red on the Bottega Veneta Soft Crocodile Knot she carried to the 2009 Emmy Awards.
We covered the black version of this clutch and now we are equally obsessing over the cream version, color is called mineral. After spotting the Bottega Veneta Nero Mineral Galuchat Knot was spotted on Leighton Meester my level of love for this clutch catapulted into a realm that I can not put into words.
I wrote about a Marc by Marc Jacobs man bag today for PurseBlog Savvy, and it got me thinking about man bags in general. Most of them are fairly unisex – a woman could easily use most of them as travel or office bags. Also, many are beautiful in their own right, although they don’t show up when I go looking for handbags to write about at Saks or Nordstrom.
Every designer has their signature. Bottega Veneta’s is of course their woven leather, known as Intrecciato. When a designer departs from their signature the end product can turn out totally wrong or better yet the end product can turn out magnificently. Bottega Veneta rarely misses with their bags. Some say they err on the side of caution, but I believe they know what a quality timeless product is and they continue to stand behind their work.
We hope you all enjoyed our exclusive Bottega Veneta day on Tuesday! It was the first exclusive day at Purse Blog and we were so thrilled to have collaborated closely with Bottega Veneta. My reviews of the bags were not altered just because we had the chance to review them, I truly loved every bag. There is an appreciation factor that goes along with Bottega Veneta.
One of the many reasons I love Bottega Veneta is for the understated elegance the brand conveys. When it comes to celebrities wearing Bottega Veneta, the crowd is typically the Hollywood starlets that we all adore for their personal style, sophistication and class. A long line of celebrities can be seen in the fabulous designs from Bottega Veneta and here are some of our favorites:
Penelope Cruz: In Cruise 2009/10 Fever Spring Gabardine Jacket [$1,900], Fever Jersey Top [$260], Fever Spring Gabardine Pant [$790], and Fall/Winter 2009 Whiskey Satin Karung Shoes [$860]
Earlier today we brought you information on how the Bottega Veneta Cabat is constructed. You all adore the Lilac Cabat we featured. I love it too. The Lilac Cabat is simply elegant. Truth is that a different Cabat had my heart all along and finally I have the pleasure of featuring it for you all.
One of the staples for Bottega Veneta is Intrecciato. Intrecciato is the technique of weaving the leather, which as all of you know is now synonymous with the company. We wanted to find out more information about the history of Intrecciato from Bottega Veneta, how did it become such a large part of the company today? Here is what we were told:
