Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato leather has always captivated me. When I think of this designer, it is the first thing that I envision. However, when it comes to styles, the Olimpia is what pops into my mind first. After all it is such a classic and iconic piece. So I was excited to see the style had been given a little makeover. This newly updated version really took my breath away. Take a moment and discover the Bottega Veneta Olimpia Bag!
This is not the first time I have seen snakeskin on a Bottega Veneta bag. Snakeskin is so striking and it looks beautiful paired with the intrecciato leather. The contrasting textures really compliment each other quite nicely. However, there is something different about the Bottega Veneta Olimpia Bag that sets it apart from other snakeskin Bottega Veneta bags I have seen. I am talking about the unusual cross-stitched border on either side of the snakeskin panel. The cross-stitching is unusual because they are what I would call casually placed, meaning they are not in straight rows or even straight up and down. They are different sizes and colors too. The overall look is actually quite pretty and even prettier when you take the blush pink color into consideration. Neutrals are great for spring and summer, with blush pink being one of my favorites.
