PHOTO COURTESY OF BOTTTEGA VENETA
In case you haven’t been keeping up with Bottega Veneta, several new-in creations feature the interwoven leather material synonymous with the Italian fashion house and its Italian craftsmanship. These include the Andiamo, Jodie and Sardine, as well as the latest Small Cabat Bucket.
Yes, even the iconic Cabat is back in Intrecciato leather. And for Fall-Winter 2023, it takes on a new contemporary silhouette measuring 35.5 cm high and 21 cm wide. Its basket-like frame is the result of using hand-braiding leather techniques to form its inimitable shape. It also comes with a detachable interior zipper pocket.
Interestingly, the Small Cabat Bucket comes free of any lining, hardware and additional straps. Instead, the sides are designed to overlap and form a neat flap closure. Besides keeping the bag lightweight, it also means you can easily reach for its contents by easing the flaps open. Either hold the cleverly integrated loop handle in the palm of your hands or slide it over your elbow.
Form and function clearly go hand in hand with the Small Cabat Bucket. You just have to decide whether it’s Amethyst, Barolo, Light Brown or Teal Washed for you. Retailing at SGD8430, the leather bucket bag is available online, and at Bottega Veneta boutiques in ION Orchard and Marina Bay Sands.
