PHOTO COURTESY OF BOTTEGA VENETA
A Bottega Veneta bag that’s all Bottega Veneta might feel like a tongue twister, but it rings true for the Mount that’s new from the Italian luxury house. For one, that’s nothing more BV now than that V-shaped cut-out flap, with the same motif echoed in the logo. Then there’s the use of thick chunky hardware chains, another BV signature that’s slowly showing up at other houses. But at first glance, even from afar, you’ll know where the Mount is from.
Offered in 2 sizes, the small measures some 21 cm by 16 cm while the medium is slightly larger at 27 cm wide and 20 cm high. No matter which size you’re going for, the bag opens to reveal 3 accordion-like compartments, giving you plenty of space to store your everyday essentials. Some advice? The small will be the perfect size for all your grab-and-go needs, but tthe medium will fit a tad more, so take that into consideration if you’re the one who almost always needs to have extras in your bag. And if you love being spoilt for choice when it comes to colours, there are at least 7 different colours like Maple and Raintree, to name a few.
Fans of grained leather will also be pleased to see several options in the scratch-resistant material, with the icing on the cake being its slightly more affordable price point in comparison to its smooth leather counterparts. Bottega Veneta has also made a rather surprising reveal with a third option in suede, a lush alternative known for its tactile appeal.
You can choose to sling it via the leather shoulder strap (a drop length of 50 cm), or hold it up by the chain so you get a short handbag style that’s all the rage for now. Prices start from SGD4190 for the ones in grained leather, before going up to SGD5300 for the medium sizes in smooth calfskin leather. The best news?
