Simply put, the Gardena Messenger is Bottega Veneta’s F/W14 answer to the men’s messenger, the ever reliable companion that I’m pretty sure every guy in the world has owned at least once in their life. And because it’s Bottega Veneta, they’ve naturally taken it many notches higher, with the soft and unstructured messenger made functional with its roomy interior and the hardy canvas strap that’s also adjustable.
It’s also one of those brands whose lineage you’ll instantly recognise, that signature intrecciato weave an icon in her own right. Priced from SGD4960 and up, you’ll find the Gardena Messenger in a variety of colours and leathers, from buffalo and calf hair to exotics like ostrich. Available from Bottega Veneta come early August, this would be the perfect bag for the guys seeking something safe, timeless and utilitarian.
