We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on some of the most beautiful Bottega Veneta handbags available. While I can’t get enough of the signature BV intrecciato woven leather design, I am always intrigued by some of the other intrecciato-less handbags available. Case in point, this luxurious Bottega Veneta Woven Shoulder Bag. I am absolutely in love with how buttery smooth this leather looks. Being part of the resort collection, this is one bag that will completely live up to its price tag. (more…)
How can I begin to describe our final day of Bottega Veneta without typing in all caps followed by an absurd number of exclamation points? It is nearly impossible. I want to stand on top of my couch with my lap top in my hands and scream my excitement over these two bags and the photos Vlad took.
To answer one of your first questions, yes that is a live alligator in our photos. To be precise, he is a four year old alligator named Wally who lives at Everglades Holiday Park in Florida. Next answer is also yes, that is two exotic Crocodile BV bags that Wally is posing with. So let’s get to it! (more…)
Our fabulous Twelve Days of Bottega Veneta are nearing an end. We could not bring you twelve days without a Bottega Veneta Cabat. An entirely simple design, the Cabat has garnered a cult-like following. Each season new Cabats are released, along with ultra-desirable Limited Editions. (more…)
Before you even stare at the screen and try to shake the computer, let me preface this post by saying I know.
Luxurious travel luggage generally does not make any sense. Flying commercial, whether first class or coach, your baggage that is checked under is treated just about as gently as Mike Tyson handling his opponents in the boxing ring. (more…)
As we near the end of our Twelve Days of Bottega Veneta, the items continue to increase in price and continue to impress.
When I first saw the Bottega Veneta Karung Nappa Umbria Shopper on the runway, I fell in love. This shopper consists of a nappa leather body with triangles of intrecciato leather and intrecciato karung. (more…)
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.
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…)
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…)
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.

Two of our favorite picks are the BV Uniform Intrecciato Book End and the BV Intrecciato Vaglia Clock. (more…)
