Radio Maier
Bottega Veneta turns industrial trash into awards show treasure

LOS ANGELES: Wednesday, February 25, 2004

WHAT: Bottega Veneta’s Gold Catena Knot Bag

WHY: You couldn’t miss a scarlet-frocked Poppy Montgomery at the SAGs, but her gold catena knot Bottega Veneta clutch almost stole the show. Creative director Tomas Maier fashioned the sleek knot-shaped piece out of radio coils and crafted the bag exclusively for the awards season. “Tomas likes to fashion luxurious pieces out of ordinary materials, like the radio coils,” said a company rep. “Each season, he creates a different ‘knot’ bag, so that a person eventually would amass a collection of different knots.” Celeb stylist Jessica Paster worked with Poppy and was thrilled to discover the clutch. “It’s a beautiful accessory…I just thought it looked like a piece of jewelry,” she said. “And Poppy loved that she could fit all her things inside.”

WHERE: Bags are custom-made. Call 877-362-1715

PRICE: $1,050

Bottega Veneta Bags
We need a topic for Bottega Veneta bags! Once you've owned (or perhaps even felt) one... there's no turning back. The feel is unbeatable and only gets better with time, and the signature woven leather is classic

My first Bottega bag is this but in brown. I am in love.



I'm sure there's tons of Bottega fans out there! Please share by posting stories, pictures, questions, news... anything really

I absolutely agree. I have two and adore them, especially my black woven hobo. The workmanship is flawless and they wear forever.
I cannot wait for the new fall bags to arrive.

My mom is absolutely obsessed with them! She has been buying Bottega Venetta Bags for over twenty years and has like 20 of them. They are her absolute favorite.

They arent my faves really, although I do from time to time borrow this one clutch of hers.

Nice bag chocsta

Bottega Veneta! Absolutely amazing quality bags and a price tag to match! They are so luxurious, and the weave is classic. They use some lovely dark browns too.


I'm gonna head to Bottega Veneta in London this weekend for a look!

Oceanharlot, 20 BVs! That's impressive

About a 1000 pounds I think, from the BV boutique. I'll ring them and check up!

Thank you! I just love their dark brown leather... my bag is in the dark brown and it was the first colour I fell in love with

Hope you find something you like this weekend... if not just looking at the bags is an experience in itself

Good point here

I think they are a little too classic and don't appeal to a cool, young generation

People always seem to say 'my mother/grandmother has a lovely BV bag'

i own the deerskin hobo and i must say that i really agree with all of you who said that bottega veneta's bags are amazing quality... because they really are! they're extremely durable, and the leather is some of the most supple and gorgeous i have ever felt.
