Well-worn denim, the perfect vintage Chanel jacket and an amazing Bottega Veneta handbag. What do they have in common? Sometimes being a little frayed around the edges is a good thing.
Bottega Veneta has some of the most incredibly sumptuous leathers on the planet. Supple and luxurious as well as easy to wear. While many premium designer handbags are structured (think Hermes Birkin/Kelly and Chanel 2.55), Bottega Veneta is the ultimate in squishy. Their hobos are iconic and highly coveted by the fashion elite and aspirational shoppers like me!
Instead of the handle being a continuation of the body of the bag, this hobo has a handle connected by brass rings. The rings go through the side of the bag so that the sides fold inward. A patchwork of intreccatio (woven) leather is connected with angular seaming highlighted by the fringed ends of the leather. The handle is completely covered with fringed leather as well. It’s a soft effect and provides even more tactile elements for you to enjoy.
Each bag is lined in suede and features an interior zippered side and open pocket. This bag will hold it all too. A very roomy 21″ x 12.5″ x 9.5″ with a 6″ handle drop. It will fit comfortable on your shoulder. Enjoy the jealous looks you get when you carry it. A dream bag for $3,250 at Saks Fifth Avenue. It’s available in black and a beautiful rust.
