One of my first major designer handbag purchases was a Bottega Veneta bag on a trip to Venice, Italy. It was a dream in every way; it was my first trip to Italy, the weather was immaculate and the store was beautiful. I picked a classic Bottega Veneta tote, and from that moment on, I've been...

Stretch Knot clutch is one of Bottega Veneta's most beloved handbags. Bottega Veneta Blue Intrecciato Stretch Knot is classic elegant clutch with tradition intrecciato woven leather and anelegant knot clasp. This handbag is made in new style confirming the irresistible beauty and timeless...

eeck!! I don't even know which one is better (or shall I say worse?), in the battle between Bottega Veneta's take on the creepy insect and Dominc Jones'. Above on the left is Bottega Veneta's Sterling silver scarab beetle earrings ($290) and on the right is Dominic Jones Beetle 22-Karat White...

handbag display was a little sparse for a brand that's so widely known and beloved for its fine leather goods, and I couldn't help but wonder if that meant the brand was attempting to shift more of the focus to Tomas Maier's luxurious, elegant ready-to-wear. Based on Bottega Veneta's Fall...

Despite a design or two that doesn't quite pass muster (riveting just make ostrich skin look strangely mottled on a few of these bags), Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 stands out as a very strong handbag collection in a season that's seen a few stinkers from brands that are usually reliable....

If you haven't enjoyed the occasional deconstructed, undone intrecciato bags that Bottega Veneta has done in the past few seasons, you might want to skip a fair portion of this post. If you liked those ideas, though, Tomas Maier sure has a collection for you. Bottega Veneta Fall 2011 takes the...

In September I shared a closer look at one of the exclusive Bottega Veneta bags created to celebrate the new Handbag Main Floor at Bergdorf Goodman. This bag was probably my favorite of the lot, as the bag itself showcases a three-dimensional effect to highlight a map of Manhattan with the...

I like the way that Bottega Veneta picks up the teal again in the braided shoulder straps. This strap is so thick and rope-like, I'm sure it's up to the task of carrying around all your essentials, and some luxuries beside! The dimensions of this shoulder bag are generous too, so you won't...

During his tenure at Bottega, Tomas Maier has so expertly crafted the Bottega Veneta woman into someone who can't be easily hemmed in by a few adjectives, as he mentioned in the run of show for Bottega Veneta Spring 2013. If you enjoy looking at top-flight detail work that's both exquisitely...

com For a brand that uses no external logos, monograms or even so much as a tiny name stamp, a Bottega Veneta bag sure is easy to spot from a mile away. Not only does any handbag addict know Bottega's signature intrecciato woven leather well, but Tomas Maier's reign at the Italian company...
