Dream Ticket: Bottega Veneta's Friendship Bracelet For Grown-Ups

Ahh, the return of the friendship bracelet. Despite this being a trend among hot young things, lots of grownups are getting in on the action, too, piling on colorful braids and beads and countless wraps of fun fluorescent string. They're pretty when they're plenty, and, well, the whole point of friendship bracelets is that they're high on sentiment, low on cost. However, one look at Bottega Veneta's signature braided-leather bracelet makes us want to rethink the concept completely. It sure isn't as economical as the disposable styles you'll find at street markets, but ringing in at a doable $180, this is definitely the kind of graduation or birthday gift worth bonding over...and wearing forever and ever.
Bottega Veneta Chene Intrecciato Nappa Bracelet, $180, available at Bottega Veneta.
