For the most part, I’ve always considered Bottega Veneta to be a classic, iconic brand. The intrecciato weaving technique is one that can be spotted from across the room or even across a busy street. Personally, it is the classic element of the brand that I love and have come to always expect.

Now, just because there are certain things I expect from a brand like Bottega Veneta does not mean that I cannot appreciate when they think and design a little bit out of the box. Certainly, in order for the design to work, what has *made* the brand what it is needs to be upheld and visible at some point. Thankfully, in this instance, BV tried something a little different and it worked.

The Bottega Veneta Perforated Leather Bag received a double take from me. When I came across the bag I wasn’t really that sure it was BV since the intrecciato weaving didn’t jump out at me. Fear not BV handbag lovers, this is acceptable. It appears that this bag takes classic brand and makes it a bit edgy. I can appreciate that. The smallish leather bag is adorned with open grommets and tiny studs that seem to sparkle. There is a small hint of that classic intrecciato weaving along the front flap which in fact assists in making the bag seem a bit more edgy than one might expect. While I might imagine some of you could say there are too many design elements on such a small bag, for me, it works. This is definitely the kind of bag that can, and I am sure will be worn by a variety of women who possess very different tastes. Buy through Saks for $1550.
