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…)
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.
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.
Always better late than never! Our third day of BV brings items from the Bottega Veneta Home Line. That is right — not only can you wear and carry Bottega Veneta, you can also use it to accent your home. Two of our favorite picks are the BV Uniform Intrecciato Book End and the BV Intrecciato Vaglia Clock. (more…)
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.

I may live in Florida, but it is still the most wonderful time of the year! After our last partnership with Bottega Veneta we knew we had to bring you more BV goodness. Now is the time.
Beginning tomorrow and for the next twelve working days we will be bringing you twelve different Bottega Veneta items that make perfect holiday gifts. Day one will begin tomorrow with the lowest priced Bottega Veneta item and the value of the items will go up from there.
So log on tomorrow for Day 1 and continue to log on through December 18th for twelve of our favorite items from Bottega Veneta this Holiday Season.
I’m usually a bit dubious when Bottega Veneta decides to layer a pattern on top of their signature intrecciato woven leather. The material itself is so beautiful and luxurious that it seem a waste to mask it, and often the extra patterns compete with the weave’s natural lines.
This time, though, I think they got it right – the argyle pattern of the Bottega Veneta Argyle Veneta Intrec Argyle Boston Bag works on its own and with the weaving. (more…)
One of the most amazing aspects of my job is the opportunity to look at handbags in showrooms. It is triple the delight when the bags we are looking at are months away from being available to the general public. If you asked me five years ago what I would be doing today, this would not be on my list. But I am beyond thrilled it is.
Visiting the Bottega Veneta showroom was a highlight of our NYC trip. Just as we arrived in the showroom, we were greeted by a fresh set of Spring 2010 handbags. The bags had only been seen previously on the runway in Milan a week prior. Now it was our turn to examine them closely in all of their glory.
When you look at a Bottega Veneta bag, one of the main aspects that intrigues me (and should be taken into consideration by any buyer) is how exactly the bag was made. Tomas Maier and the Bottega Veneta team continue to go above and beyond when creating their pieces. There is a story behind every item, every color, every technique, and every material. Now if we could have the pleasure of sitting down with Tomas Maier to see into his vision our lives would be complete. We can dream, right? (more…)
One of the most coveted Bottega Veneta handbags is the Cabat. Hop over to the Bottega Veneta forum on the Purse Forum and you will find thread after thread of avid Cabat collectors. What is all the hype about?
The bag is relatively simple, an oversized tote with a woven body and double handles. But the love for this handbag runs deep. No one can seem to get enough. There are limited edition Cabats, like the Reflet Cabat we covered, along with classic Cabats that are released in seasonal colors. (more…)
Alright, I am trying to contain myself, but it is a bit tricky. See, Bottega Veneta is having one of their amazing trunk shows tomorrow and it is in San Francisco. It’s only a 7 hour drive from San Diego, so I am half tempted to get in my car and head north, like, now! Well, truth be told, I probably can’t attend, but for those of you lucky ones in the San Francisco area, you have got to check out the BV trunk show tomorrow! Here’s everything you need to know:
