Is this the season of the black bag or something? Lately I’m seeing quite an influx of black-on-black designs. Naturally, some, like this Bottega Veneta Glossed Watersnake and Intrecciato Leather Tote, are more engaging than others. This, like other Bottega Veneta purses, is meticulously crafted with a combination of textured materials. The leather is timeless and handsome, while the shiny snake adds an element of sex appeal. The entire package is beautiful, even without a hint of hardware for contrast. Well done. Available for $6245 at Net-a-Porter.
