Having just ogled at (and physically molested) the new season Bottega Veneta Pewter Multicolor Washed Cervo Bag, I can safely say this. If you’re looking for a small, casual messenger/brief that’s as soft as baby’s bottom, this is it. Measuring 36 cm by 33 cm, this is one of those bags you use over the weekends or casual Fridays, the pewter leather contrasting nicely with bands of red, black and cream going down the sides (which you’ll see clearly when you click on this link).
And there’s more. The edges of the bag (and the strap) are intentionally left unfinished, which does complement the washed leather perfectly.
Also, you can carry it one of two ways, so you know for sure you’ll be getting some mileage out of it. Which is important since you’ll have to fork out GBP2040 for it online at Mr Porter, or at Bottega Veneta boutiques locally where it should be launched soon. Do I love it? Yes. Would I pay for it? Maybe, maybe not.
