Bottega Veneta has re-introduced their famous Lauren 1980 clutch for 2017!

Categories:Other Brands


The silver screen has given us some unforgettable fashion moments, from Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress and pearls combo in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Alicia Silverstone’s iconic yellow plaid skirt suit in Clueless, some of the world’s most iconic trends were created by movies. In 1980, Lauren Hutton probably had no idea that the intrecciato clutch by Bottega Veneta that was on her arm in the movie American Gigolò would cause such a stir.


Now, decades later, the brand brought back that iconic clutch christened “The Lauren 1980” for their Spring/Summer 2017 runway show. At the show Hutton herself carried the bag down the runway in the same red shade as the one that was featured in the movie. The name of the shade? Gigolo Red of course! The special re-edition of the clutch will be available exclusively in this fiery hue. On the inside is a tag engraved with the bag’s name “The Lauren 1980”.

Lovely, Lovely Bottega Veneta Milano ’17

Categories:Other Brands

milano-17-1

We’ve seen the Roma bag, and it’s so beautiful. The Milano ’17 bag is a similar, daintier version. Just as classy, too.milano-17-2

It has a smaller top flat leather handles. It’s two compartments dimples the bag in its side, where a detachable sling can be attached to.milano-17-3

It has several compartments, in this bag it is down to two, instead of three like in the Roma. It has the same clasp as is with the Roma. In a way it’s a bag that I would prefer over the other.

milano-17-5

It’s a beautiful everyday bag, for work or play. And what’s more convenient is that this bag comes with a cross body sling.

milano-17-4

The Milano bag marks a signature vintage Bottega Veneta design, reinvented for 2017 and onwards. Functional and stylish, and I can’t wait to have one.

Exclusive Look at the Making Of a Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Olimpia Handbag

Categories:Other Brands

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 clasp being Bergdorf Goodman.

In late October, artisans from the Bottega Veneta atelier in Vicenza, Italy were on hand atBergdorf Goodman to showcase and demonstrate how this bag was crafted. Vlad and I have had the pleasure of seeing the Bottega Veneta artisans at work three times now – once in Italy, once at the NYC flagship, and in October at Bergdorf Goodman.

The experience is something to behold and it helps showcase the craftsmanship that goes into creating a Bottega Veneta bag and continues to show me why I love my Bottega Veneta bags so much; not only are they beautiful to look at but also they are made by hand, and that can’t be said for many bags anymore. This bag is exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman and a limited edition. Price is $3,500 and you can buy each version here: pink, yellow, black, red,blue, and gray.

Bottega Veneta ingeniously put a mini map of Manhattan on one of their handbags!

Categories:Other Brands

For Bottega Veneta’s latest handbag design, the maison’s creative director Tomas Maier sought inspiration in the memorable Big Apple. Manhattan has inspired many artists, designers and writers, but we’ve definitely fallen in love with the way Maier incorporated New York’s most densely populated borough into his handbag design. Called the “Manhattan Olimpia”, the bag offers a smaller version of the brand’s iconic Olimpia handbag, this time adding a 3 d effect to the much loved Intrecciato woven leather design with the addition of strips of snakeskin leather.

But the snakeskin leather does more than just that. Woven into the bag’s pattern it actually references the street grid of Bergdorf Goodman’s Fifth Avenue store and Central Park. This is naturally no coincidence considering that the bag has been created exclusively for Bergdorf Goodman and celebrates the store’s recent remodel of their first floor. More details include the metal clasp which marks the position of Bergdorf on the map and a darker section of nappa leather which indicate the location of Central Park.

The bag is available in six shades each one priced at $3,500. As usual my picks are the bold and bright China Red and Dusty Rose which go perfectly will with dresses, trousers, casual or formal outfits. Give your inner Manhattan fan a reason to rejoice with this portable and stylish map of Manhattan!
