If you’re a Bottega Veneta fan, then you in for a big surprise once you check out one of their latest accessory pieces. It’s the Iridescent Nappa (leather) Beetle Clutch, a newbie to the upscale French couture house. The first question that came to mind was, why a beetle?! The second, where did this inspiration come from? With the little rain shower received in my neck of the woods, there has been an increase in the variety of arthropods that one sees. With that in mind, picking a favorite bug to adorn on my accessories is the least of my concern.
Taking the giant beetle out of the picture and focus on the accessory itself, I actually like how this clutch reveals three roomy flat pockets and one zip compartment. I’d say this layout keeps you slightly more organized than a single compartment would. Of course, Veneta had to apply finishing touches of its infamous interwoven leather braiding, throughout the giant bug and the edgings.
The price for this one-of-a-kind French accessory… that’ll be a whopping $1,980! Personally this BV bug clutch won’t do much for my personal style, but if the bug trend does bite one day, I’d say an embellished pin or charm would do the trick.
