    Yet another company bought to be milked as a cash-cow by Gucci Group. Bleh... :sick: :yuk: Unless it's exquisite woven leather - it's not Bottega Venetta. BTW, what should we call it, if YSL is Gucci II, should BV be Gucci III?

    while i agree with faust regarding all the hoopla around bottega...this time, i don't think the hype is really working...i don't think sales are all that good at bottega... i may be wrong...maybe somebody can shed some light there...

    thanks for the post-igni

    i am glad to see tomas maier spreading the wings of this company...like tom ford alluded, bottega really is more an understated luxe company...these brands have a very specific customer and it takes a while to grow it, but i know i am not the only one that fell for the leather cuffs of a couple seasons ago...one of the best investments i've made...although i don't know if it'd technically qualify as jewelry.

    (btw maier is a doll, they just did an article on him recently in elle, he's definitely got the cool factor down)

    I wish they were taking it the way they said they would. Did you see the BV a/w 2004/05 ready to wear "collection"? It was a bad imitation of already bad Balenciaga.

    yeah i was completely unsatisfied with the latest collection -- one has to be very careful with the understated brands like hermes and veneta and others to not make them stuffy and/or boring...they must still be fashion items, just not trend items.
