A sure fire way to make me feel like I’ve been doing this for a really long time, is realizing that my first Bottega Veneta bag I bought after I started PurseBlog was in 2007 on a trip to Venice, Italy. Another way to realize we’ve grown a lot is checking out the pictures we took of that bag – those few pics were taken by Vlad and I think we can all agree his photography has also evolved quite a bit!

When I started PurseBlog, I really started delving into handbags and researching brands to learn more. I immediately fell for Bottega Veneta and the brands beautifully made products. I loved the meticulous attention to detail, the intrecciato and the beyond divine leather that’s used. I’ve been a part of not one but two special orders (here and here) and always had a very special place in my heart for the brand.

I think it’s easy to sometimes get lured away from the classics into the what’s new and trendy, but I never want to forget Bottega Veneta. A couple weeks ago, Bottega Veneta launched a new shape for the house, the Bottega Veneta Bucket Bag. Tomas Maier designed this bag with intrecciato nappa leather which is finished with smooth leather drawstrings with metal loops and chain. The bag is rather slender though the interior has plenty of space with smartphone and zip pockets and is lined in suede. Just like most bags that I love, this bag comes with an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap along with the double handles which allows for cross-body or over the shoulder wear. The Bucket Bag is available in Nero (black), Pacific (deep blue), Vesuvio (orange), and Peony (pink).The price on this bag is really reasonable especially for the quality that Bottega Veneta provides – $3,550 via Bottega Veneta and the Madison Avenue Bottega Veneta store.

    I can’t carry bucket bags. They’re a bit of a black hole, and I would spend half my day digging around trying to find my car keys. That said, this is an attractive bag. I love the vibrant red.

    • Kate

      Oops, I guess it’s orange! That’s a bit unexpected and makes it even better.

  • Amazona

    A bucket with two short handles? Love it! I have a SH bucket and, with the addition of a long strap, it would be perfect. This BV is nearing it – it speaks to me on every level and is actually looking refreshingly modern and practical as well as stylish and classic.

    • Amanda

      I agree with you on the longer strap. I wish more brands understood that that strap is really valuable to women on the go!

      • Amazona

        It’s essential, and the lack of one has caused many of my lovely bags to go unused. But also, on this specific bag, I find the two short handles both very pretty and practical. It’s possible to keep the bag in your hand and still have it stay open while you’re getting things from it.

    • LPS

      As Meg’s describes it in her review, it *has* an adjustable, detachable long strap.

  • Sara

    Love Bottega. Love to own one day. It’s my holy grail. This bucket bag is simply gorgeous.

  • Smithy

    I generally like it, but I’m not so sure on the metal tabs that attach the short straps.

    These are gorgeous! Love the double handles and the neutral hardware.

  • Aliza Zibkoff

    Like the bag but not getting the Spanish Inquisition hardware.

  • klynneann

    The bucket bag trend has been going strong for a little while now. Wonder why it took BV so long to decide to come out with its own version?

  • Dwightinha

    I like it. Black or Peony.
