A relaxed, everyday version of its antecedent, the Crush bag is crafted with exceptionally supple leather characterised by diagonal quilts to emphasise its tactility. The bag’s crinkled finish and soft form take the unmistakable curved figure and pointed edges of the Hourglass, but with a pliability that allows it to expand and collapse with pressure. It comes in three sizes, as well as a choice of silver or gold chain straps that can be worn effortlessly across the body, or looped and doubled for shoulder carry.
Bottega Veneta Mini Cabat
Bottega Veneta’s Cabat family has been graced with a new addition of the Mini Cabat, reinterpreting the House’s most iconic bag with fresh dimensions.
