It’s 2 am now and all I am doing is obsessing over the Bottega Veneta Oversize Intrecciato Tote. I always go back and look at stuff I can’t afford, and this is definitely one of them. Priced at SGD4182 or so, this large tote measures 54 cm across and 42 cm in height. The size probably means you can use it for short weekend trips or for work with your gym gear packed in. Besides being hand-held, it can also be shoulder slung by way of a detachable shoulder strap, though I seriously think it’s just cosmetic. Why? The strap is much too thin to really carry any real weight, and it will probably ‘cut’ into the shoulder as well.
Still I love it. Just look at the interior. How can anyone resist the suede lining? Understated, classy and timeless, it’s exactly the type of bag (and brand) that’s still missing from my collection. A boy can dream, can’t he?
