Some bags make more of a whisper than a shout – but a whisper can be just as effective, and sometimes even more so. Just look to Bottega Veneta for a prime example of a softly beguiling creation. Sure, the design may not be earth-shattering or revolutionary; it is just a shopper tote, after all.

This season, Charlotte Olympia and I are on the same page when it comes Chinese appreciation. Well, I always have Chinese appreciation, but I will be taking a trip to Taiwan this fall to spend extended time with my family, so my reverence is at a high.
