There are no rules when it comes to bags. Evident in Bottega Veneta dressing up its iconic Cassette bag with an exciting new tie-dye twist. The interwoven ruched leather heightens the effect further, causing the pale green and dark green hues to ‘spread’ all over the exterior and shoulder strap in a mishmash manner.
Spotted on the classic size which measures 24.5 cm wide and 15 cm high, the foulard intreccio tie-dye leather Cassette retails at SGD5590, slightly higher than classic versions with a similar make. Opening via two magnetic snaps at the edges, the crossbody bag boasts full lambskin bonded intreccio lining.
Behind the Cassette lies a deceptively simple-looking brown shopper that some might mistake for the new Bottega Veneta paper carrier. But it’s actually a new-in design called the Brown Bag crafted entirely in leather with a paper-like texture.
Call it cheeky or witty, the ‘paper’ shopping bag even folds inward with a wrap-around handle style completing the look. It comes in small (SGD2730) and medium (SGD3650), measuring 26 cm by 20 cm and 32.5 cm by 32 cm respectively.
A Cassette bag to-dye for (pun intended) or a leather paper bag that will get people talking? The choice is yours.
