Yesterday, Megs wrote about a Bottega Veneta-ish bag that Kim Cattrall was carrying. Seeing the woven leather re-sparked my Bottega Veneta interest. I’m not a BV owner, but one of these days, yes, one of these days I will be. The intrecciato weave that is used with BV bags is not only a signature feature but also absolutely timeless.

Bottega Veneta Mini Woven Shoulder Bag

The Bottega Veneta Mini Woven Shoulder Bag is yet another BV bag put together seamlessly. Whether you prefer the bag in white or black woven leather, the goldtone hardware pops either way. The stand out piece I really like? It would have to be the 14½” shoulder strap. In addition to that, I love the top zipper closure. This bag is a bit different from other BV bags, and this is a good thing. It would be a great bag to grab, throw over your shoulder and just go. Buy through Saks for $720.

    Luv BV. Luv this new design. I have two of the Maxi
    Veneta’s (one red, one black) and they are constant “go to” bags. I really like this one as well, but would like it to be just a wee bit bigger and perhaps in a dark, rich brown. I could not stand it if I got a white one and that pretty baby got grubby. I really see the BV bags as work horses.

    The bag doesn’t make a statement but it is a classic purse. It would look better in a black though lol

    This bag is both beautiful and cute, mixing the timeless woven leather with an adorable design. I definitely agree that the gold pops, especially in the picture above, and it adds more to the design. I usually love the Bottega Veneta bags, and this one is no exception! A good find.

    I’m having a hard time with this one. I LOVE BV for their beauty and timelessness. However, this particular bag looks like something I’d normally avoid. It could be simply because small bags with long straps are just not my thing. I don’t like to knock BV too much though, as they rarely do any wrong! This is a great way to get a much more affordable BV as well. Can’t go wrong with white.

    I love BV. Finally, after a full year of longing after the Roma in silver/gray, I took the plunge, and have not suffered any buyer’s remorse (unusual for me) because of the timelessness of BV bags. But I gotta tell you – occassionally BV strays and offers bags that I consider “faddish” rather than classic. That’s all well and good, I like designers who are willing to step out of the box; I’m just not willing to spend a ton of cash for a style that mimics something from Urban Outfitters, no matter how beautifully done. When I look at this bag, I’m reminded of the purses that I wore in 8th grade – saddle pouch with long skinny strap, worn off of one shoulder or, better yet, across the body, and because of my petite stature, practically hitting my knees with every step. And you know what? It looked horrendous then, and, 20 years later, I’m betting that it’s not gonna look much better on me now.

    Do they have this in the Bottega Veneta store in London?
