Not all flowers needs to be big and bountiful to make a statement. Embroidered geometric patterns in the softest nappa are stitched like 3-D microblooms on the freshest white woven leather to craft Bottega Veneta’s new Intrecciato Mosaic Mist shoulder bag. Appearing like the terrazzo tiles of a gorgeous Tuscan villa, the workmanship is more complex than what the eye beholds, involving five solid hours of embroidery and more than 300m of thread to make a single bag. “I wanted this collection to have lightness, so that it can be worn right through the summer through the first months of fall,” says Tomas Maier, creative director, who celebrates 15 years with the Italian luxury label, which turns 50 in September. And this slice of pretty is the ultimate party piece. Priced at RM14,990. Bottega Veneta, 2.30.00, Level 2, Pavilion KL. Tel: 03-2143 7880.
