I have been trying to decide what color Bottega hobo I should get for a long time. I first bought the white one, but got scared about maintaining the color, so I exchanged it for the hazelnut color. Now, I think I like the chocolate brown better.
If you had your choice between the white, hazelnut or chocolate brown, which one would you get?? Thanks so much!

dgie - I've been wanting the hazelnut ball bag. BV said its a perm color. I think the color is beautiful.

I got this recently after lusting after it for months. I love the color and knew I had to act fast before it disappeared. Bottega has the softest leather!

Taitai, I have to admit I'm a little disappointed you've decided not to get the tartan bag though I'm sure anything else you choose will be just as beautiful.

I wanted to find out if anyone here knows anything about this bag I recently got on eBay - I saw it months ago and didn't win it, but I couldn't get it out of my mind... so when I saw it again, I jumped on it. It has feathers woven into the leather - pheasant, I think? It's quite amazing. It's a limited edition, marked 002/100. Anyone seen it before, or know when it was made? I don't know how to figure it out from the bag itself.

Nizlay, dgie, puccimama - thanks for your input. I did as suggested and bought the chocolate cabat (medium size, which they call the European size) and I LOVE IT!!!!! It is the softest leather, I think the best way to describe it is SQUISHY BABY soft.
I love the buttery soft lambskin pouch it comes with. I think I can use this as a cocktail evening clutch.

I will post pics soon.
Btw, the cabat does not have those straps in the middle. It's just a very simple, clean open tote.

The cabat comes in seasonal colors and for F/W I saw the greyish-silverish (more silver than gray actually) matte cabat. It is also coming in the color translated in English as NUT, which is a medium brown. The color is sweet, but not deeply rich enough.

Dgie - get chocolate brown. It is just so luxe looking!

Louisey - Stunningly unique bag!! Congrats!! I have a bottega book given at the recent luncheon. I think they have a very similar design. Let me look for it and scan it for you!
Btw, the tartan is just too small for me. I do like the design but I wanted a bigger bag.

Pinky, not sure about the sizes for the green one. The red tartan with the croc handles is only coming in one size. I posted a few pics sometime back showing the proportion of the red tartan when worn by a model. I think the width is about 30 cm, too small for me.

Dgie - have you decided what color you are getting in the hobo?
