Bottega Veneta Bags
I have been thinking about buying this bag for a while now, but I'm not sure about the quality of these bags. Also, has anyone seen this one in real life? Is it as beautiful in person as it looks in the picture?

Thanks,
Maxi

BV is an excellent brand...the quality is top notch. I haven't seen this bag in person, but it looks beautiful.

That is so good to hear about the quality. Actually, I think I'll take a stab and order it. If I don't like it, I can return it .

My husband bought me a Bottega Veneta bag for Christmas, and it's absolutely gorgeous and beautifully made. I don't think that you can go wrong with one of these :-)

I'm so glad I posted today because I wasn't sure if I should order or not. With all these replies, I'm definitely ordering. I just hope it's as beautiful in real life as it is in the pic. Thanks everyone :p .

I have a BV hobo from last season and I love it to bits.

It's sturdy, the leather is of a good quality and it holds everything I throw inside.
Plus, I get compliments on it everywhere I go.

I am glad you decided to order your bag, I am sure you won't regret it.

Hello! I just received my bottega bag today. Wow! Wonderful! I'm italian, my grandmother was a tailor,a perfectionist, so, you know, I'm quite obsessed about the quality of the materials, I am often unsatisfied. But this bag! Great! But are you sure about the color? Shouldn't you buy a more classic one? I personally had it in light-brown/dark tan, and I think that in a color without shadings the bag has a hippie twist but is still classic. I have the feeling that one could be tired a day about the shadings, you see?

Elsa, I am absolutely positive about the color. I have so many colors of bags, but this will be my first orange (and a shiney one at that). If I do like the quality, I will definitely buy a much larger shoulder bag in a neutral color.

Elsa, wasn't it you who was looking into buying a Balenciaga and changed your mind because of the quality? If so, I'm glad you found a bag that you really love and is of such great quality . There's nothing worse than spending so much money on something you feel is not wonderful. (However, I still am getting 2 Balenciaga bags )

If you can, please post pictures of your bag. I'd love to see it.

Maxi

I saw pictures of the hobos from last season and was so tempted "many" times to buy one, but I was afraid of the quality and the size. I am hoping that BV is going to be a brand that I can trust and love .

Yes, it's me! So you want this color + the quality is really good=you'll be more than satisfied! My boyfriend has a digital camera, I will ask him to show me how to use it, and I will post the pics tomorrow!

Just to let you know, mine's a bright orange origami hobo from F/W04.
I feel it just the ideal size for all my junk and the colour's bright and gorgeous.
It's amazing how many colours orange can go with..except purple maybe..

I use this bag a lot and I am really torn between my BV hobo and my Balenciagas. I think the leather from both is different but fantastic!!
