I'm no bottega expert but the defining feature of bottega bags is the quality of the leather, and the pics kind of look like shiny, plasticy leather. Also the construction in the handle looks a little sloppy. But the main factor that leads me to think it's not authentic is the BIN price. Who in their right mind would sell a bag that goes for $1500-$2000 for that cheap?
Again, I'm no expert, this is just the feeling I get from the auction.
anybody in here has this season BV intrecciato shopper in large???? i really like the bag but would like an owner of this bag to comment on the practicality and does it stand on its own when there is not a lots in the bag.
i also have the cocker cerf in chocolate brown and love the leather but not sure whether to keep it cos the strap hurts my shoulder when i wear the bag. shall i keep it?
I don't understand why Bottega Veneta bags are so expensive? A trip to BV store in KL got me choked. A simple woven interciatto handbag was price tagged at a cool sum of RM 90 000.00 or $24000.00. Isn't that absurd?
^ but i've noticed a rapid rise in prices with the increased popularity of the brand- before a mens bag would be had for about £1k now they pretty much all start at 1.2K. But it's amoung the best leather out there- love the smell and feel of them.
