Intreccio Collage - a new treatment for S/S 2013 mostly seen on the Men's line. This is not a woven bag. Each square is laser cut on perforated leather to give off that effect.

Intreccio Imperatore - imagine 4 of BV's treatments all on one bag. The 4 include the mini ponza, standard intrecciato, standard intrecciato on tubed fettuce and scolpito. (as seen on the weave pic)

Available on both Men and Women's collections from F/W 2012.

Hi annie, I'm doing well and still enjoying all my Bottega's, just haven't been purchasing new ones. So its harder to look at all the new ones. Just so tempting.

Ricamo Rete a treatment where leather is stretched over a metal mesh framework. I believe this is S/S 2013.

Also from the look of the clutch, there must be some vacuum treatment, don't you think?.. to get the leather to conform around the metal.

Shown in the Nero Ricamo Rete Knot ($1,380) and Ricamo Rete Clutch ($1,480) from Barney's, then the Poussin Knot and Krim Clutch from NM:

Metal stitching - back in Early fall 2012, BV released a Cabat that had metal mesh yarn inserted in between 2 layers of fettuce accenting the outline of the weave. To my knowledge, this particular treatment was only done on the Cabat and was also only interpreted in one color combination: Gainsboro/Oro.

It's called Nodini (which means knot). It is back for Pre-Fall 2013 but BV actually resurrected it from the early 2000's.
