Although the tote is structured, it is not overly boxy since the leather (either French Calf or supple Nappa, based on your choice) works seamlessly with the plan. I can testify to the truth that Bottega Veneta utilizes a number of the best leather from the world, and I’ve had more than 1 individual touch one of my luggage to inform me how great it felt. I am aware that it will wear well over time and not lose it’s shape, but it is also not so structured it feels bulky. It is the great structural blend, and many brands have difficulty reaching that middle earth, but Bottega Veneta did it.Though you are able to take the bag just from the top handle, you know how much I live for an optional crossbody strap. This makes for a statement piece in and of itself, which is such a excellent touch. Talking of additional standout attributes, I really like the front grip. I know it seems like a small thing, but it actually pulls the bag together and stands out. Hardware can break or make a bag for me and sometimes be too over the top, but that is never the case with Bottega Veneta. On the Piazza, the dark golden and brunito complete on intrecciato-patterned hardware is simply perfect. It stands out without being distracting, and it is one of those perfect touches which Bottega Veneta does so well.
Long before Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo bestowed their daughter with the name Dusty Rose, the shade was an omnipresent favorite among fashion people, and it’s still is a color of the moment. I fell as hard into the dusty rose trap as the next girl–you see, I love pink, but bubblegum pink is too overt, in my opinion, and not really my vibe. Enter dusty rose, the color: it’s a combination of pink and taupe, and a color I can’t get enough of.
Bottega Veneta has always used some of the most divine colors in the handbag rainbow, and when I found this Bottega Veneta Messenger in Dusty Rose, I fell so hard. It’s perfect. The color, the simple style, the leather. Everything about this bag is perfection. The size is just right to fit all of my personal essentials so I can carry this for myself while also carrying a diaper bag for Millie. For the first time in a while, I added this bag to my cart and am ready to check out.
