Over the last few years, I have become a full-fledged Bottega Veneta girl. I started with their handbags and slowly began adding shoes, and before I knew it I was buying their clothing as well. This is a brand I know and love and hands-down can proclaim that if I could, I would wear and carry Bottega Veneta every single day. As the brand has grown, so has its offerings. From home accents to furniture to jewelery, Bottega Veneta continues to expand into a luxury lifestyle brand.
Recently Bottega got us talking with its Initials Project, and now I am excited to talk about the introduction of Bottega Veneta Intrecciomirage and Intrecciolusion.
The Fall 2012 Bottega Veneta collection marks the launch of a new line for the brand, including Intrecciomirage and Intrecciolusion. A large amount of products, from bags to small leather goods, are being offered in an array of colors. The Intrecciolusion line features items made of twill that have gone through an artisnal process by the printing method to deliver a signature intrecciato pattern. As for the Intrecciomirage, these bags are made of a thinner Nappa leather and shows an engraved intrecciato finish.
These new bags are simple but still breathtaking, just as we have come to expect from the brand. With a much lower price point, these materials are a great way for customers to begin their Bottega Veneta collections if their budgets don’t allow for a full-on Intercciato bag. For the established Bottega customer like me, this line is perfect for an added place in my life. I am constantly on the run and while I carry my handbag, many times I have to bring along another bag that will transport everything from gym clothes to my laptop. Instead of a no-name tote, I would love to store my necessities in one of these bags, and I’m certain this is what Tomas Maier had in mind when he developed the new Intrecciomirage and Intrecciolusion. This inclusion is simply another addition into the luxurious Bottega Veneta lifestyle brand. Shop the collection via Bottega Veneta.
I personally love the look of the BV Intrecciolusion. I saw the Plum and Canyon last week at the Scottsdale BV boutique. The are beautifully rendered - like a subtle water color in true BV craftsmanship. David, my Scottsdale SA almost convinced me to replace my family of leather pouches with Intrecciolusion pouches. He also recommended an Intrecciolusion tote to protect my BVs when flying. You never know what's under that seat. I recognize that some BVettes aren't falling for the new line up. I'm not liking the Intrecciomirage, but I do see the Intrecciolusion as a future purchase. I say future because I'm buying a new car and I know DH's radar is up on any cc charges that say Bottega Veneta. I managed to sneak home a BV Violet bracelet from Scottsdale last week.
