Taitai....I think the perforated leather takes some getting used to. I have the large perforated veneta in the nocce colour and at first I wasn't at all keen on it. I think what I like most about the perforated bags is the ruffled edges that come along with it. It just makes the bag a little different from all the rest. I'm still not sure about the colour though. It seems like a lot of money to spend on a bag if I am not convinced about that.

Pinky, thanks for the tip. I'm just not a red-bag kind of gal, just trying something a little different. Its either this bag or a large purple compagna bag. Any other colour, style, you recommend?

nizlay, I actually do think the colour of the red bag is gorgeous and would make a wonderful accent/accessory! IMO, I quite like the ruffled edges too, it adds a feminine touch to the bag.

After reading the last few posts, you guys have got me itching for another BV......

Taitai, I read that article too last week!! I remember sitting in front of my laptop and spazzing out to my Mom by saying "Mom, you got one before Madonna!!"

Nizlay, you're right, the perforated leather does jazz up the bag. I guess I tend to associate perforated leather with those old Luella Gisele bags. I think if you aren't 100% sold on the color, you should wait. There are just sooooo many gorgeous BV designs out there, you are bound to find out that you totally love. The green one you posted earlier is pretty unique!

You might want to wait until the F/W collection is out? It's bound to be stunning!

Taitai, I ended up going for the red ball bag. I'd better make good use of it! By the way, check out Saks.com. They have updated their Bottega collection and some of them are gorgeous. I love this new Cocker bag....but check out the price!

does BV make any accessories other than wallets: like checkbook covers, coin purses, make-up bags, etc.?

The Cocker is gorgeous, but at almost $4000 I'm going to have to resist the urge and take a pass.
