Introducing the Brand New Bottega Veneta Bucket Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Bottega Veneta Bucket BagA sure fire way to make me feel like I’ve been doing this for a really long time, is realizing that my first Bottega Veneta bag I bought after I started PurseBlog was in 2007 on a trip to Venice, Italy. Another way to realize we’ve grown a lot is checking out the pictures we took of that bag – those few pics were taken by Vlad and I think we can all agree his photography has also evolved quite a bit!

When I started PurseBlog, I really started delving into handbags and researching brands to learn more. I immediately fell for Bottega Veneta and the brands beautifully made products. I loved the meticulous attention to detail, the intrecciato and the beyond divine leather that’s used. I’ve been a part of not one but two special orders (here and here) and always had a very special place in my heart for the brand.

I think it’s easy to sometimes get lured away from the classics into the what’s new and trendy, but I never want to forget Bottega Veneta. A couple weeks ago, Bottega Veneta launched a new shape for the house, the Bottega Veneta Bucket Bag. Tomas Maier designed this bag with intrecciato nappa leather which is finished with smooth leather drawstrings with metal loops and chain. The bag is rather slender though the interior has plenty of space with smartphone and zip pockets and is lined in suede. Just like most bags that I love, this bag comes with an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap along with the double handles which allows for cross-body or over the shoulder wear. The Bucket Bag is available in Nero (black), Pacific (deep blue), Vesuvio (orange), and Peony (pink).The price on this bag is really reasonable especially for the quality that Bottega Veneta provides – $3,550 via Bottega Veneta and the Madison Avenue Bottega Veneta store.

Don’t buy any ‘By The Way’s’ yet before you read this.

You see, we were excited when the newer version of the Fendi By The Way Bag was getting a tale with lots of Swarovski crystal embossed.

READ: Fendi Mini By The Way Leather Bag

Not only because the size was ‘mini’ but the tale was like… a crocodile tale. It was elegant, beautiful and shiny – basically our taste!

The Swarovski stones matches like twins to the color of your bag. The black with black stones and the pink with light pink and white stones. Lovely!

Now Fendi reintroduces the By The Way Bag in Snakeskin, completely embellished with beads, sequins and crystals.

Besides that it is in beautiful yellow – the color of the summer, it has the same crocodile tale that we’ve mentioned earlier. And to make it even cuter than ever, it’s stitched with cute miniature creations of the Fendi classics everywhere on the bag.

It comes with a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, featuring an internal zipped and slot pockets, measuring 5’ x 8’ x 4’ (H x W x D), priced at €2990 euro via MyTheresa.

Is Chanel Discontinuing the Grand Shopping Tote?

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Grand-Shopping-Tote-Discontinued

It’s somewhat rare that brands discontinue popular bags from their popular collections, but we’ve been hearing a lot of buzz lately about the potential end of the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote–it might be a thing of the past in the near future. Or maybe it’s just getting a huge price increase. Or perhaps it’s simply being yanked from the American market because of its relatively low price point and market over-saturation? No one seems to know.

I first read of the GST’s looming demise yesterday on Mizhattan, which posits the story as fact rather than a rumor and reports on low stock level at several NYC-area stores. We then looked to our Chanel subforum over at PurseForum, which has a discussion on the GST’s theoretical disconinuation that dates back to December. In it, members from all over the world report on what they’ve been told by Chanel sales associates; many in the US have heard that the bag will soon be gone, while European readers are more likely to report that their SAs were baffled when they asked about the GST’s pending disappearance. One tPFer even contacted a Chanel boutique in Paris, where the associate told her that the GST is in the permanent collection and isn’t going anywhere.

Among the European Chanel lovers, the talk is instead of a future price increase; the GST is among the brand’s most attainably price bags for its size, and Chanel may be concerned that it’s diverting customers away from its other, more expensive bags of a similar size and type. Rumors about the GST also went around last year around this time, so who knows if this might just be another game of telephone gone awry.

We’ve reached out to our sources at Chanel; if we hear anything definitive back from them, we’ll update this post. In the meantime, have any of you heard any news from your regular SAs?
