The Material Boy #90


Bottega Veneta Sardegna Canvas Shopper

Bottega Veneta canvas bags are of no frills and understated elegance in terms of design. The canvas range has been revamped each season with slight variations. But to be honest, I have rarely seen them offering hideous designs for their canvas bag range. I always love the colour combinations as well. This Sardegna Shopper is perfect with the use of beige canvas and tan brown leather. Antique finish hardware adds character to the bag as well.

This bag is wonderful in many ways. But I find the canvas bags kinda heavy. The bag itself is even without contents is 'heavy'. Try to imagine when you start packing them up. I say this becos' I own one canvas bag myself and I had tired arms after carrying it around for a day. Plus, the handles are also not very comfortable to hand carry as it is flat and stiff. In spite of these small 'flaws', this is still a delightful bag I dun mind adding to my bag collection. If only Singapore stores stocks this!:-P I'd buy it!

Update:
This bag is in stock at Bottega Veneta Boutique at DFS Scottswalk at SGD $2300.

Retail price: US $1250. Where to buy: www.bottegaveneta.com

Hi! would you happen to know the name of a Bottega cotton canvas bag... am not able to find the name or model of the bag. Saw it at Paragon on Monday, went down ytd, wasnt there already.

It's overall grey, has leather strips at the sides, an internal pocket, the handles are leather. Has got two buttons at the sides to make it compact, or to make it look like a cabat.

I think I know what you are referring to. It's a grey canvas bag with black leather trim. I saw it today at the store. it is placed on the lower shelf. So you can still find it in the store. Go check it out!:-P
