Reaching for a Bottega Veneta Mini Montebello

If it wasn’t for the Intrecciato leather, I’d have mistaken this for a Chanel Boy bag.

That’s a good thing. I happen to like Chanel’s Boy Bag very much. But this is not Chanel, it’s Bottega Veneta. And in the spirit of my search for the perfect small sling bag, add this to my list of great bags to choose from.

This is the Mini Montebello bag. BV has a nice wide collection of sleek and sexy Montebellos. They also come in regular sizes, but it feels too big for my taste of late. It’s a nice flap bag with a detachable chain sling so you can carry it cross body, or just clutch it sans the chain.

Though similar looking to Chanel’s Boy bag, I like this better. There’s no clunky hardware getting in the way, the chain is detachable, and the size is generous to fit your daily needs, or evening errands. There are no discernible logos (but Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato/woven leather could very well be its monogram print).

Inside is a nice parted interior, splitting it into two parts. You should be able to fit a relatively useful bunch of items to carry around. Somehow, accordion sides seem to be everywhere, and the Mini Montebello sports one in its simple structured form factor.

It’s a damn sexy bag. Get one.
