Arm yourself for Boston Fashion Week and beyond with Bottega Veneta’s new “Rialto” bag, done up in striking emerald elaphe skin. Named after the iconic Venetian bridge, the rare chain-strapstunner is available at the Italian brand’s just-opened 2,500-square-foot boutique at Heritage on the Garden, where you’ll also find clothing for women as well as fragrances, shoes, jewelry, and more for both sexes. That is, if you can drag your eyes away from the bewitching carryalls.
