Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Document Case For Fall Winter 2014

Below: Still one of my favourite 'man clutches'... the Bottega Veneta Intrecciato VN Document case now gets better with contrasting colour stripes woven into the middle... The Edoardo Intrecciato Club Fumé Document Case (below) are a must have!
Below: Tired of the usual black or browns, these new Bottega Veneta Intrecciato VN Document case in Signal Blue and Aubergine is a nice way to spice up your winter colour choices!

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Document Case For Fall Winter 2014

Portfolio bags or ‘man clutches’ are now a staple fashion accessory for the well dressed guy. Often paired with suiting styles... these handy and versatile bags are most ideal to hold all your belongings while not overwhelming your style. Often than not, they add to your look and has become an indispensible style statement in its own right.

Bottega Veneta has done a great job offering guys an functional and appealing option with their Intrecciato VN Document Case. Featuring their signature leather weave, these zip portfolio bags are sophisticated and a true testament to believers of  the brand’s philosophy ‘When your own initials are enough/. Individuality without blatant use of logos. It’s no wonder these are now a classic and favoured choice of savvy gentlemen time and again.

For Fall Winter 2014, the Intrecciato VN Document case (USD1080) can be found in bright tones of Signal Blue or winter appropriate Aubergine (Burgundy) colours... a nice break from the usual blacks, browns or navys. I especially love the aubergine colour, somehow the crimson hue is the ideal balance of being eye catching without overbearing.

But my excitement gets over the top when I spotted a new variant, the ‘Edoardo Intrecciato Club Fumé Document Case’ (USD1580) which cleverly introduces more colours thru contrasting coloured leather weave in the middle. I want these! I’d pick the burnt red/aubergine option as well as the green and brown version which are refreshing colour choices for guys.

Besides the VN Document case, I also love another of BV’s portfolio bag, the Intrecciato Vachette Document Case (USD1250) which features a flap closure and partial woven leather panel. If you are looking for something more suited for work, this is it! Most professional in black, they looked super smart for those power dressing days.

Valentino Fall Winter 2014 Mens Rockrunner & Rockstud Sneakers

Below: Are you a Valention Rockrunner sneaker fan? Good news, gorgeous colours and new materials are being offered for the new Fall Winter 2014 collection! Love the leopard haircalf version as well as the red/burgundy camouflage variants:-) Also check out the Rockstud designs which features even more of the brand's signature square studs... this time in gorgeous greens and reds:-)
 Below: Loving these sporty fabric and leather rockrunner sneakers... especialy the ones that feature a brightly yellow/orange leather accent:)
Valentino Fall Winter 2014 Mens Rockrunner & Rockstud Sneakers

Ever since the launch of Rockrunner sneakers several seasons ago... Valentino have created a cash cow tapping into the luxury sneakers market. Not only have they created the frenzy for sneakers with high fashion looks, Rockrunners have also become a staple item in the brand’s collections thereafter.

If you have been a fan of Valentino’s sneakers, you are in for a treat this Fall Winter 2014. After the fluorescent Rockrunner Fluo collection, this fall season sees even wider variations to satisfy the ever expanding fan base for these footwear. From leopard haircalf to  burgundy camouflage print (€620) to winter appropriate hues of forest greens and browns (€620)... I love them all! The pair with leopard haircalf (€620) gets my vote... when exotic meets sports meets luxury... what more can one ask:-P I also adore the more affordable fabric ones that come with a pop of eye catching orange or yellow leather accents (€570).

Also check out the Rockstud sneakers (€640) that feature multiple rows of square studs running on the sides further reinforcing Valentino’s signature design detail. The previous season only offered black coloured ones, so it is welcoming to now have hues of deep greens and reds. A nice way to add sophisticated colours to any winter wardrobe.
