One of the most well-known brands in the handbag world is Coach. Both men and women recognize the Coach logo and millions continue to support Coach bags season after season. Established in 1941 as a family run workshop in Manhattan, Coach quickly became renown not only for their style but also quality.

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.


An elongated clutch, the Bottega Veneta Parure Karung is inspired by decorations from haute couture. The beauty of this bag is that it is a clutch, but Bottega Veneta heard the requests from their audience and added a strap to enable comfortable shoulder wearing.

Updating the classic Veneta, the Bottega Veneta Tornabuoni Maxi Veneta is named after the technique used to create the dimension on this bag. The effect is created by carefully double twisting individual strips of leather. This technique is seen vertically across the entire bag.

This is not a clutch, it is a piece of art that belongs alongside Queen Elizabeth’s Crown Jewels, locked up in the Tower of London. Everything about it is extraordinary, from the overall design to the craftsmanship and work that goes into making it.

It took me a few minutes of looking at this bag and holding it to decide that I did not like it. Rather, I love it. The Bottega Veneta Python Belly Veneta has the classic Veneta shape, yet has been reworked into a shopper, which Bottega Veneta coined the Croquet.

Continuing to love, support and discuss the brand, the Bottega Veneta fan base on the Purse Forum has helped our Exclusive Bottega Veneta Day come to life. The Purse Forum is the largest gathering of handbag enthusiasts world wide, as well as the most active fashion forum online.

We are excited to be the first site online to bring our readers a look at the Bottega Veneta The Art of Collaboration video for Fall 2009. Shot in New York this past March, the video was taken during the Fall 2009 photo shoot, captured by famed photographer Steven Meisel.
