My mom, being an AmEx Platinum cardholer was invited to the launch of the 2006-2007 Fall/Winter Collection of one of my fave brands, Bottega Veneta. But since she's working in Las Vegas (and watching the Pacquiao-Morales fight with ringside tickets too!) I went instead.
A couple of months ago I already saw the collection in the internet and I loved it! Specially the evening gowns. Here in the Philippines however, they don't carry the clothing line as it is too expensive.
I have yet to own a Bottega Veneta bag despite being one of my favorites. I just couldn't bring myself to spend half a years salary for a bag! Further translation: I could already feed about 200-250 people in my wedding with just one bag!
But alas! I'm a dreamer and I know I'll have the courage to splurge THAT much.
The whole collection was only accessories: bags, shoes, wallets, key chains and planners.
The leather they used vary from lamb, deer, goat and even sea snake. Here are some of my favorites...
