Beautiful braided bags at Cole Haan

  1. I've always admired Bottega Veneta's braided bags, especially a grey satchel from last season I kept seeing on Neiman Marcus' website. I saw the Small Triangle Tote (actually not so small at 15" L X 9" H X 6" D) today at a Cole Haan store and it's so striking in person (the photograph doesn't begin to do it justice). It feels verry summery to me, in terms of color and shape. The marigold (golden yellow) color is very pretty, and the braiding is so intricate and pretty in person. Any thoughts on this bag? There are several other styles of braided bags offered also Thank you.

  2. I'd like to see it IRL- love the shape and color online, but with weaving it REALLY comes down to the execution and it's really hard to tell from that pic.
     
  3. I don't care for the weave pattern, but I do like the shape of the bag.
     
  4. Cole Haan bags are top quality craftsmanship ! I saw this bag at the CH store and I loved it but there are others I like better for the price like the Tripple Zip Satchel
     
  5. I saw these recently at the Cole Haan in Northbrook Court. They are beautiful! :love:
