Bottega Veneta Reflet Cabat

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.

Bottega Veneta Limited Edition Reflet Cabat - Folded

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.

BV Reflet Cabat Limited EditionThis 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.

    My fingers are crossed for you, Megs. This bag is so crazy gorgeous I’m actually thinking it is going to spark a trend for gigantic evening bags. And sparkly day bags.

  • jburgh

    Reflet is such a beautiful multi-dimensional color. I have seen it in person and it seems to change color with the lighting conditions. No one can outdo Bottega Veneta in metallic finishes. They simply leave everyone in the Dust (another great BV metallic, btw). Now if Peltro would come back my life would be complete.

    I has been travel to Europe many times but never thought of getting a Bottega Veneta Cabat bag. Till May this year when I planned my Europe summer holiday cum shopping trip; Bottega Veneta’s brand just came to my mind… and now I came back with my medium size Cabat and a wallet which cost me 3950 euro & 490 euro, I got my cabat bag in Italy Florence.
