For a brand that uses no external logos, monograms or even so much as a tiny name stamp, a Bottega Veneta bag sure is easy to spot from a mile away. Not only does any handbag addict know Bottega’s signature intrecciato woven leather well, but Tomas Maier’s reign at the Italian company has brought with it signature flourishes that make the leather goods uniquely Bottega without making them any less elegant or subtle.

Maier’s use of crocodile, for one, is always a highlight, and that’s absolutely true for Bottega Veneta Fall 2012. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is – perhaps something in the quality of the colors that he chooses, or maybe the hardware in which its trimmed – but those bags always look not only so chic, but also so Bottega. This collection plays slightly more with layered embellishment than Maier has done in his handbags in the past, but the effect is one of slightly restrained, utterly elegant adornment.
