Is it me or does Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato leather feel a little overdone? I know, I know, it is their signature look. But after seeing it over and over again, it just starts to feel old and even a bit boring. Therefore, you can imagine the relief I felt when I saw the bag pictured here. Yes, it features the intrecciato leather, but it has a fresher look to it. Take a moment and discover the Bottega Veneta Olimpia Mosaic Embroidered Intrecciato Shoulder Bag, a new addition to the Autumn 2016 Handbag Collection.
The Olimpia has been a longtime staple for Bottega Veneta and it’s really nice to see it updated. It is amazing what a little bit of embroidery will do! I love the loop embroidery on this piece, it adds such a rich texture. And I love the flower-like mosaic in transitioning colors – claret, chartreuse, and black. All of this on an ivory background. The color combination is unusual, but I’m really drawn to it for some reason. I think this bag would be perfect for the upcoming fall season. I think Net-A-Porter is on the right track here with their modeling picture. This bag would look great paired with a neutral colored sweater and jeans.
The Bottega Veneta Olimpia Mosaic Bag is available at Net-A-Porter, where it retails for $3500
