Bottega Veneta has always been known for making its signature bags available in a wide assortment of colours (just picture the Intrecciato-weaved bags of seasons past) that typically include Cammello and Nero, along with seasonal favourites like Mustard and Rust, just to name a few. And the same can be said for the brand’s latest icons like The Pouch and its smaller sibling, The Mini Pouch, both of which come in exciting colour options for you to lust over.
Now, what was originally called The Pouch 20 back in June 2019 is now referred to as The Mini Pouch, and there’s no difference in terms of size and function between the two, save for the fresh addition of colours that have recently arrived for Spring-Summer 2020. Measuring 22 cm wide and 13 cm high, The Mini Pouch opens via the magnetic frame closure sitting right on top, cleverly tucked under the luscious folds of buttery soft calf leather. Contrary to its name, the bag is anything but tiny, considering it has a voluminous base that’s guaranteed to hold a good day’s worth of essentials. The soft leather body is lovely to touch as well, coming in a unique shape that some of you have lovingly referred to as the ‘dumpling’.
The other plus point about The Mini Pouch has got to be the addition of the slim shoulder strap, which allows you to sling the bag casually across the body as you please. That’s an added advantage over the original design, which could only be carried by hand or clutched under the arm. Priced at SGD2010, you will find them in colours like Bordeaux and Light Orange over on Bottega Veneta’s online store, which currently offers shipping to Singapore from the brand’s distribution centre in Hong Kong. Alternatively, you can head over to NET-A-PORTER which has a great selection (USD1490) for you to choose from as well.
