It is as easy as this, I like this handbag. I am sure I have said it before, but I’ll say it again, one of my favorite things is looking at a handbag, a shirt, a pair of shoes, etc. and just really liking what I see. No justification is necessary. Well, that is exactly how I feel about the Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Maggiore Bag. At first glance, the color and texture of the bag caught my eye. I love the shade of red, so rich and warm. The woven leather is impeccable. I personally love woven leather that doesn’t look like it has been woven too tightly or too loosely. I don’t know about you, but when leather is woven too tightly, the seems to lack movement. While at the same time leather woven too loosely makes me worry that something small like an apartment key or my favorite lip gloss, *GASP*, could fall right out. I mean really, losing my favorite lip gloss, which mind you I can only find online, would be absolutely tragic!

Ok, ok, back to the bag. The double top handles and silvertone hardware continue to compliment the bag very well. The bag has a magnetic closure, one inside open and one zip pocket (perfect for my lip gloss). And of course, in true Bottega Veneta fashion, the bag has suede lining. I have to say, I am quite a sucker for suede lining. Who isn’t? Overall, the bag is absolutely gorgeous and to me, a great addition to any handbag collection. I personally think the style is totally classic and chic; the kind of style that can be worn for seasons to come. And hey, if you don’t think it fits your budget, it’s never too early to put it on your holiday wish list! Buy through Saks for $1,850.00.

    This beauty also comes in a large version, in black, which I just purchased. I LOVE this bag!!! So soft and supple, yet structured, with a very subtle sheen. Here is mine:

    Black is only being sold through dept stores that carry BV. BV boutiques carry the large version in green only.

    Oh and one more thing: “Maggiore” means goatskin. It’s divine.

  • BV does goat skin like no other!! Your bag is beautiful jane!!!

    I better stick to the lip gloss for now, What is this favorite lip gloss?

  • andee – this is my fav lip gloss: i started using it in high school and haven’t gone back. It’s nothing fancy, but it is without a doubt fabulous!

    I’d choose this bag over the blue croc ‘n diamond birkin that was posted earlier…this one is so different and just stunning!

  • Love the color and the draping. I want to make a pillow out of it :)

    I love the shape and color. I have not seen green one. anyone has a link?

  • Very pretty, the red is something different! BV truly is the king of the woven leather. This bag, or any BV bag, will be certainly worth the investment. Just love it!

  • jane

    The green version in the large size can be found only at as far as I know.

    As a long time admirer of BV bags, I have to say that it was love at first sight when I laid eyes on this picture. I was beyond thrilled when seeing the link, but heartbroken when I saw that Saks was sold out of that particular style and colour.

    Does anyone know where there’s one available?

    This is one of the most fabulous BV designs of recent time. The goatskin is superb. The subtle wave is perfect.
