bottega veneta bag GASP! I’m so smitten I can’t even think of a clever preamble for this post! This Bottega Veneta Soft Crocodile Clutch is just dreamy. I love Bottega clutches. The pillbox structure and the signature pretzel knot detail on the closure are so elegant. Not all Bottega clutches are created equal, however, and this is one of the most beautiful clutches I’ve ever seen. The crocodile! Well, first of all, it’s freakin’ croc, so it’s pretty much as luxe as you get. Second, it’s amazing croc. This croc leather doesn’t even look reptilian in that scaley vaguely creepy way some other lesser exotics do. The texture is almost tiled in a gorgeous, soft, yet natural pattern. I feel like I could touch this and it would feel as buttery as the most delicate lambskin. The color is utterly wonderful too. I can’t even put my finger on what color it is. The description doesn’t help – it’s called “ebano,” and if that’s a color, it isn’t in English. Anyway, it looks like a soft rich brown with some purple and silvery undertones. I would love to see this bag in person as I imagine it would be even more breathtaking. If you’re swooning like I am, but with a lot more cash to plunk down on an evening bag, pre-order this gem from for $2,400. Seriously, that isn’t bad for croc!

    Maybe by “ebano” they mean ebony…dark woody colour. It’s my favourite clutch, by far the most stylish.
