Q: Hello, Please tell me what you think of the Botkier Sasha Duffle? I am torn between the Mini and the Medium, probably in Black patent. It is hard for me to decide on size without being able to see the real thing! And is Botkier even available in Singapore?
A: Dear Pamela P, first the bad news. Botkier can be found at 693 Fifth Avenue by Takashimaya New York, a small concept retail space on Level 2, Takashimaya Department Store at Ngee Ann City. However, only a small selection is available, which means you may or may not find the Botkier Sasha Duffle.
Now the good news. I love both bags you picked, and honestly if they were more widely available in Singapore I would do more posts on this brand. And if I had to pick one, it would be the Botkier Sasha Mini Duffle (shown above in Medium). I just like how it is more compact and yet lacking none of the omph, with all the bell and whistles still present. You can’t go wrong with Black patent (but do consider the Marine patent, I think it rocks!), and at around SGD1000 or so, it ain’t a bad price either.
Guess it is time to ring Takashimaya Department Store or getting a friend in the States to get one for you.
