Style and Substance: Intrecciato Cross-Body Bag
A simple sling bag, with a functional purpose.
What a beautiful thing to behold. A bag should be both beautiful, and useful. There’s too many bags out there that are either too small, too stylish to function, or just doesn’t makes sense. But Bottega Veneta, with their perpetual old school style, sends us a bag our consideration. And what a wonderful break from all the handbag flash we are subject to gawk at.
It’s a flap bag, with great compartments inside. Called the Intrecciato Cross-body bag, Bottega Veneta brings us a wonderful and simple bag, but doesn’t compromise on beauty, quality and style. The magnetic flap comes with dangling leather strips that serve as design and something to pull at when opening the bag.
Lined wonderfully in tan suede, it’s a great contrast to the beautiful blue exterior. Inside you’ll see two compartments for your everyday items, and a zippered pocket standard across many bags.
It has a chained sling, which is okay. But it wouldn’t be a disaster if it was leather through and through. But if you step away and take an over all look to the bag, it’s wonderful as is. Glad that the part that actually rests on your shoulder is leather, instead of actual chains that can get caught with hair. I have a beard myself, and believe it or not, it gets caught in chains too.
