As part of the fun & fabulousness of the Salone del Mobile 2012 furniture exhibition in Milan, Bottega Veneta is premiering their new "Initials" service which allows you customize your bag, belt or other intrecciato nappa-leather goodiess with your initials.
1. First, pick your product. Women can choose from 2 shoppers, various wallets, a belt, a variety of cases & other small sundries; men get a tote, a messenger, cross-body, belt & 2 wallets.
2. Then select the color leather you want: nero, ebano, blood red & antique white (for women) or nero, ebano, a deep, celestial blue & vermillion (for men).
3. Lastly, choose the color of the letters. There are 8 to pic from: white, nero, ebano, indigo blue, sunset yellow, blood red, antique pink & Irish green (you can stick to just one or if you're feelin' sassy, mix it up).
Also, if you're thinking this would make a great gift, you'd be right, and if you don't happen to know the lucky recipient's middle name, you're in luck because they can also design something with just two initials. Also, Initials will be available for luggage starting in July. "I'm excited to be launching Initials because it allows us to take the customer-centered philosophy of Bottega Veneta one step further," adds Creative Director Tomas Maier. “The service is truly personalized and the process is fun. The best part is that the products look great."
