What can I say… I LIVE for LUXURY and Bottega Veneta is just that! I have several pieces from this fabulous fashion house and if
I had to play favorites… I would definitely reach for this one!! The Veloures woven leather in maroon with crushed velvet. Saying it just sounds sumptuous and it is exactly that. The warm maroon color makes it perfect for the darker days of winter while the subtle leather makes it easy to snuggle up to.
Compared to other brands such as Louis Vuitton or Gucci, Bottega Veneta isn’t what most people would think of as “mainstream”. It is a pricey and distinguished brand that not just anybody knows about. The products aren’t ridded with logos or branding so one could carry this expensive item and have it be discreet and unsuspecting. Which is just one of the many reasons why I love this empire.
The brand has had a strong following and can be seen in the hands of many elitist and celebrities. It hasn’t been until recently that more mainstream buzz was created when the likes of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were pictured carrying the pricey bags. As for myself, I have been purchasing this brand long before The West’s have been seen with it. Not to mention I have been following and admiring this artisanal leather goods maker LONG before I was able to afford purchasing such accessories.
This lifestyle brand offers investment pieces that will last for decades. I have been fortunate enough to have acquired quite the personal collection for myself. Everything from belts, handbags, wallets, travel bags and even fine jewelry.
Understated elegance will never go out of style.
I will do more entries highlighting my different pieces, when and how I use them and post different sale opportunities through one of my favorite Bottega Sales rep.
