Bottega Veneta Utility Fanny Pack
I never and I mean never-ever bash Bottega Veneta. Well that was until today when I discovered this bag. I adore the house of BV for their simple logo-less iconic hand woven intrecciato leather pattern design on a classic palette rather than trend-driven designs. But this â€œtravel packâ€? reminds me of a heavy duty utility belt. The thick (1.5”) wide belt features a masculine heavy clunky pack (Bag measures 9” wide (excluding side compartments) x 10.5” tall) with a cellphone holder with snap top closure on one side and on the other end a water bottle holder thatâ€™s secured with a (oh my lord) a thin belt strap that oddly wraps around your thigh.
I couldnâ€™t imagine the purpose or the occasion where one would wear this Bottega Veneta fanny pack. I guess if you are a stylish gardener or a trendy hiker then maybe this would be the purse of choice. Other than that, I say pass. I would rather spend a little bit less and get the (fabulous for spring) Bottega Veneta white woven leather mini clutch which is on sale for only $448. Also available in brown.
Retail Value: $790.
Sale Price: $632.
