It is barely fall in my neck of the woods. In fact, the high temperature yesterday was 85 and I wore flip flops to the mall. We’ve yet to experience our first cold snap in Atlanta, despite the fact that mid-October is approaching quickly, and already fashion wants me to start thinking about spring. I’m just not ready yet, but the beautiful color of the Bottega Veneta Large Lambskin Hobo provides plenty of distraction from my reticence.

As always with these types of bags, the key word in the name of the design is “lambskin.” Bottega’s is particularly wonderful, and in person, this bag is surely light as a feather. A very expensive, soft feather, but a feather nonetheless.

I tend to gravitate toward black and grey even in warm weather, so the bright bags in my closet serve an essential role in making sure that I don’t look like I’m constantly headed to a funeral. This bag in particular checks a lot of the boxes on my personal list: it’s oversized, comfortably shoulder-carried, and light enough that I can load it full and not make my shoulder ache. I keep telling myself that if I preorder it now, it’ll show up like a wonderful surprise in February, exactly when I’ll be impatiently anticipating the return of warm weather. For the moment, though, I still want to concentrate on fall. Buy through Saks for $2350.

    Not appealing and don’t care for the color! BV seems to like very wide bags.

    I love the colour, and the kind of stiff slouchy-ness.

    Not sure about the very light weight leather, but this color is just amazing. A cabat in this color would be irresistible. (ipad)

    That color is actually the same color as my child’s sippy cup. And I like it. Like a resort, Caribbean blue. (ipad)

    Hey BV designers: Would love to see this color in the cervo hobo. (ipad)

    Beautiful…like the IDEA of turquoise….but really prefer that beautiful light blue that they do. There’s a Target aspect to this color. I LOVE the comment about the same color as the sippy cup!!! (right?)….Bottega should probably stick more classic.
