Two of the bags that mean the most to me in my collection are my special order Bottega Veneta Knot Clutches. Not only are both of my bags incredibly rare (Bottega Veneta made a small number of them for a group of PurseForum members), but they are totally stunning. When they were made, we were told that after a Bottega Veneta bag reaches approval for special order, it can not be made again for production. That means both of the bags I have are of a super limited run for very small group of people, and if that weren't special enough, getting to work with PurseForum members on designing what we were looking for was such a great experience.
Bottega Veneta isn't a brand that seeks to draw attention to itself with trend-setting bags; instead, the brand prefers discretion, and I don't think that's a problem. With so many brands fighting to release more items each season in hopes one will really stick with consumers, it's nice to see a brand like Bottega Veneta staying with what it does best and honoring its tradition of quality craftsmanship and beautiful products.
I looked around and ended up seeing a few items I really loved from Bottega Veneta, and then a couple turned to five, which turned to eight. Focusing on evening bags and small bags, these are eight bags Bottega Veneta has right now that are worth a look.
