It’s a wonder men hate shopping or think they don’t have much to choose from when they can have a bag like this blue messenger/backpack bag by Bottega Veneta. This bag is an addition to the already wide range of men’s bags on the Italian luxury brand’s website and includes detailing from previous styles. The bag is made from Intrecciato Leggero and vachette leather, which is a supple untreated calf hide, and dyed a deep shade of Prussian blue. The inside of the bag is lined with soft cotton and is branded with a leather embossed accent; while on the outside has a woven pattern along the front and the back with sheer leather accents on the lower end of the sides. The straps are made of sturdy cotton and are made to take the weight of the bag and its contents. The bag measures 14 inches high, 15.4 inches wide and 6.8 inches deep, while the strap measures around 70 inches.
The bag is extremely versatile and has great functionality with its two compartments, one zipped pocket and a smaller double slip-in pocket for small electronics. The mouth of the bag can be fastened with a buckle detailing that is then covered by a leather flap that has the woven patterns on the outside and sheer leather on the inside and can be shut tight with metal buttons. The beauty of this bag besides its chic sporty look is that it can be used as a cross-body messenger bag or a backpack depending on your mood with its simple strap and slider system.
The bag retails for approx. $4000 and can be bought off the brand’s website.
