Satchel or life organizer? What about a Bottega Veneta bag that’s both?! While on the outside, this has the look of a quintessential day bag, it opens up to reveal a supremely innovative interior with compartments as detailed as those of a steamer trunk. Accordion-style expansion means you can luxuriously fill this with a day’s (or a few days’) worth of essentials, while the smart separation means no irritating fumbling.
It’s almost needless to say: Bottega’s quality is unquestionable. The mirrored corners bring a sense of modern appeal to a timeless shape, while the contrasted trim subtly punctuates the weave. The price is a bit steep, but you get what you pay for: this gem is perfection. Rarely do desirability and practicality come together so well. Bottega Veneta double handle tote available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman for $4,750 (expect delivery by May 16th).
