The IT Bag in Town – Bottega Veneta Pouch

If you know me, you know that I am not a trend person. I love them, but I usually don’t hop on the trend train till I have weighed in the pros and cons of the trend itself and see a more worth of the investment I make, and it applies to everything that I buy always. So, you can say I am a bit picky.

So, when I saw some of my favorite youtubers and bloggers wearing this bag and it immediately grabbed my attention. Now, what did grab my attention initially was why are they so obsessed with this simple bag. A bag that is so basic to probably most of us. Bottega Veneta is one of the Classic timeless brands established in 1966 way before I was born masters the art of intricate weaving technique is all of its exquisite designs called “intrecciato”. A company with craftsmanship of detail and simplicity. I had many times crossed by the store in the valley fair mall and to be honest felt like this is something that a 50 year old myself would wear and was waiting for that day to come.

But, let’s face it, I was totally wrong. This exquisite bag made out of a single piece of leather is a masterpiece of the true essence of design excellence in simplicity. Yes, we often think that something simple would not be exquisite or luxurious, but this bag defies all of that. Its simple pouch style makes it versatile with any outfit. And the biggest reason why I bought it was because I wanted a bit of Indian ethnic touch to my bag when I am clad in a saree and now, I am so excited that I will totally carry this bag everywhere. When I went into the store, I was instantly attracted to the smaller pouch, because of its elegance in and softness in the look itself. Though this bag also comes in the Bottega Veneta signature weave “intrecciato”, I still was so into this simple black pouch. Something about the simplicity of the style was beyond resisting for me. The bag comes in so many colors, but for me the black stands out.

To me it portrays the ancient craftsmanship work that I have only seen in museums. The pouch has magnetic clasp opening, which is perfect because that makes the bag more flexible and you could keep a variety of things in it because there are no shape constraints unlike other bags where you would have to think of what length or depth of items would fit in. I think this is the biggest reason that this bag has reached enormous popularity in the fashion industry.

The dainty string like straps are actually detachable which converts this shoulder bag to a clutch which is just amazing because, I love carrying it as a clutch, but love to have the option of straps when I need my hands free.

I can totally predict the Bottega Veneta pouch to become the next classic timeless bag like the Hermes Birkin bag and the Chanel Envelope flap bag which are such timeless pieces that they become more precious as they age. This pouch comes in 2 sizes and with the signature weave pattern leather as well.
