PHOTO COURTESY OF BOTTEGA VENETA
What looks like a bar of chocolate but really isn’t? Well, it’s Bottega Veneta’s Cassette Bag, which also really isn’t a cassette in any sense of the word. Perhaps only inspired by the shape of the cassette tape, the rectangular icon introduced by Daniel Lee has slowly become a firm favourite of the Italian luxury house, complete with a padded woven exterior and finished with an eye-catching chain sling or leather strap.
And while there are a few permutations in terms of finish or size, they mostly come in leather, be it shiny bonded lambskin leather or bonded lambskin leather (sans shine) and even bonded suede leather. The standard size measures around 26 cm across by 18 cm high, with the ‘unpadded’ ones coming in a tad smaller.
Priced at SGD4480 and SGD5740 respectively depending on which type of sling/strap finish you decide on, the Cassette Bag comes in enough colours to make the rainbow jealous, from classic neutrals to deep and rich jewel tones for the reason. Intrigued to pick a new bag with a difference that’s also made to last a lifetime?
Well, you can always head down to Bottega Veneta boutiques in Singapore at ION Orchard or Marina Bay Sands, or check out via their online e-commerce site for more information, including direct-to-door delivery upon completion of your purchase.
