Earlier today we brought you information on how the Bottega Veneta Cabat is constructed. You all adore the Lilac Cabat we featured. I love it too. The Lilac Cabat is simply elegant. Truth is that a different Cabat had my heart all along and finally I have the pleasure of featuring it for you all.
The Bottega Veneta Reflet Cabat makes my heart go pitter-patter. This version is completely enthralling, romantic, whimsical, and ever-so-lovely. I am having withdrawals letting this one go. There is a metallic finish that is applied to the leather and then it is hand buffed with a two-tone color mixture which gives the unique marbleized effect. This bag speaks to you. Each slight movement gives you a new color. Helping the color variations stand out, the woven Nappa leather showcases the metallic finish magnificently.
This is one of those bags that I feel speaks for itself. Words do not do justice to the beauty of the color. The curious thing about the metallic treatment of the leather is its direct reaction to the temperature of the incident light that hits it. Cold, indoor studio light will make the leather shimmer in a cooler purplish tone, while warm, afternoon sunlight will have the metallics radiate with hues of bronze and gold. There simply is no ONE tone to this bag, it varies in appearance and changes like a chameleon.
Is there a sophisticated way to beg for this bag? The Reflet Cabat in medium size is limited to 120 pieces worldwide and from what we have seen and heard, it is selling out quickly. Contact your local boutique or call Bottega Veneta to inquire at 877.362.1715. The Cabat will set you back by $5,950.
