The Material Boy #160
Bottega Veneta Sile Lace-ups In Bianco Intrecciato Paladio Calf
Finally, the long-awaited catalogue of Bottega Veneta's Fall Winter 2008/2009 collections are up online at their website. Although the clothing is much too mature and formal for my taste, I do fancy a few of their bags and shoes. The baggy silhouette is just not my cup of tea. However, as usual, their strength in making great lloking accessories came through as usual.:-P
First up, my shopping radar from the collection is this pair of beautiful, drool worthy Bottega Veneta Sile Lace-ups in white intrecciato calf leather. Featuring the brand's signature woven leather as the shoebody and a wooden sole and heel in a raw untreated colour. I like the wooden sole's natural wood colour which to me, is beautiful and compliments the white colour very well. I would say this pair of lace-ups is more spring summer than fall winter. You can easily pair this with shorts for a summery resort chic:-P But then again, the classic design also works for fall winter looks.
Of course, such beauty in footwear does come with a huge price. Despite, the hefty price tag, I am sure investing in this pair of lace ups will ensure your money goes a long way in both style and quality:-P
