Yesterday I made the pilgrimage to the San Francisco boutique after receiving a call from my SA with the good news that something special in Violet finally arrived. Thanks to Ivan's up-selling, I am celebrating Spring 2012 with a BV Violet triptych. Here's a hint...
Is that silvery stiching the PVC? I wonder why they don't use a leather weaving? In any case, I agree, I love this new violet!!!!!
The shiny effect is the PVC weave. It is over stitched with black. The PVC is also used in a new "double" lambskin hobo. I actually had the large violet cabat on hold but fell for the edginess of this new weave treatment. This bag was one of the runway looks for SS12: http://www.bottegaveneta.com/default...TW/SS12/Look21
The duo are TDF. 'Can't wait for the third piece to arrive next week. This is my holy grail of BV colors. I love purple. DH was teasing me last night because Violet exactly matches the color of our front door. Now when I need to have the color matched again, I can just show my bag to the guys at Dunn Edwards.
