Bottega S/S 09 Trunk Show

Sorry it took awhile for me to actually blog about the BV trunk show but blame it on the rude ladies at BV who wouldn't let me take pics this time around. I had just started taking pics of the bags when I got yelled at and was told "No pictures allowed". I told her that I was with my SA and she apologized and backed off. When my SA rejoined me, I wanted to make sure that it was still okay to take pics and this other random lady next to her cut in and explained that since none of the items had been officially published in catalogues, pics were not allowed at this time. Watevs...thats why we have style.com! Anyhoo...if you hadn't already seen the collection during the fashion show or on style.com, the color for the upcoming season is ORANGE. Orange ranging from yellow to copper. Orange isn't exactly my favorite but there were some bags that deserved honorable mention:

Some bags and shoes had this flower motif on them and the leather comes in this yellowish color. Now I probably wouldn't fork over the thousands of dollars to buy these goodies but I think they totally fit in with the spring season ;)

**UPDATE: Here is the one and only picture I was able to snap before I had to put the camera away...**

Cute and whimsical flower print on the classic weave.

Its hard to see from this picture but there were bags that had the Bottega weave with embroidered flowers. Pretty cool craftsmanship but again, I personally wouldn't spend money on such a seasonal piece.

Now this WE LOVED!!! DZ and I went crazy over this weaved ostrich bag in copper. Gorgeous!! The only problem is the price tag...$8000! I could buy TWO YSL ostrich muses with that money!

This was a funky but gorgeous hobo. Again the details are hard to see but up close and in person, the color and craftsmenship is just out of this world. Probably my second favorite piece after the weaved ostrich. Great everyday bag...sturdy and would probably be able to fit a whole lotta your crap!

Finally...this funky bag caught my eye cus it looked like a bean bag sitting up on the shelves. Its HUGE and pretty darn out there (translation: I wouldn't spend money on this but I think its cool...). Once again, hard to see but amazing craftsmenship.

In conclusion...while not exactly a fan of orange, I am in awe of the work that goes into Bottega pieces. If I had all the money in the world, I would've ordered the weaved ostrich and the copper hobo. But since the world is not perfect, I'm opting to save my money for my navy large ostrich Muse :)
