Be&D Bowery Leather Satchel Without knowing for sure, I am guessing the Be&D Bowery Leather Satchel is in fact named after Bowery which is a street and small neighborhood in the southern part of NYC. I am sure Be and or Steve will confirm. The reason I can 100% tell you that this bag is awesome is because of the leather. The leather on Be&D bags is beyond supple. It is so soft that you will find my oddly caressing my Be&D bag from time to time. Odd but you will see what I mean when you touch their leather.

Be&D is all about the studs, but it is a welcome treat to see a studless bag from them. The Bowery Satchel has a downtown cool feel, most likely the feeling associated with the Bowery District. The front zip pocket is perfect for easy access and there is a magnetic snap closure there. The chain shoulder strap brings a nice touch alongside the double handles. I know this handbag is simple, but sometimes simple is what we all need. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $665.

    I agree it’s the comfort food of bags! I love it. The color reminds me of fudgesicles. Anybody else?

    After having the opportunity to stroke one of the bags, I can definitely say…smooth like butter!

    Be&D…the ones I love are always the bags over $1k. Nonetheless, gorgeously made. I would love to add 1 of their bags to my collection this year or next. ….oh and to see these bags in person….hands down (IMO), they were the most beautiful of all the designer handbags I’d seen recently.

    Hello, where have I been?
    I saw this bag IRL only a month ago at a Nordies and was so surprised at how wonderful the leather felt and the workmanship at this pricepoint….AND thank goodness I just bought one of sale at Bluefly…….WOW!
