Bottega Veneta Resina Lambskin “Cobra” Bag: Urban Beautification


There are the Bottega Veneta bags meant for indoor occasions, the elegant lunches, charity events, and sit-down affairs; then there are the rare few made for hitting the streets. The “Cobra” bag is one of those experimental pieces that just nail it, no holds barred. A subversive feast for the eyes in all its autumnal-hued glory: shiny python, grainy leather, and texture weave (the effect is almost glamorously prehistoric), adding up to a big-city bag with big-city attitude.

The girl who carries this bag has enough personality to command the entire room; she is one tough cookie who gets what she wants, all the while remaining sweet and charismatic. Hmm…sounds familiar! (Confidence is a state of mind, right?) This bag is so exquisite, I could live with the “Cobra” and nothing else for the whole season, and this time I really, truly mean it! Which is exactly how I’m going to justify the hefty price tag. So worth it though! This season confidence comes in the form of a once-in-a-blue moon bag. She will be mine. Oh yes, she will be mine! To be sold at Bottega Veneta for $5,250.

  1. It won’t be mine (can’t justify the price), but I love, love, love this bag. BV is not on my radar because the basket weave is not my thing, but this one is.
