Hi. I'm new in this subforum. I usually hang out at the Hermès and VCA subforums, but I'm interested in this bag. Could someone please authenticate it for me?

Item Name: BV Cabat large (Transparent)
Seller name or ID: Kerstin
Working Link to pictures:
Comments: the proportions of the handles are a bit suspicious; they seem longer than the actual runway piece but it could just be the angle the photo was taken

Thank you! :heart:

EDIT: This thread seems to break the URL I pasted above for some reason. It generates a preview but the underlying link is broken. If it goes to the homepage of VC, please just enter 30171758 in the search field. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Authentic, very unique piece. Crafted of PVC and leather.

ETA: You probably already know this, but this was known as the Crystal Cabat, from S/S 2012 - also comes in a partial leather/PVC version.

Hello everyone! First timer here :smile:

I bought this bottega veneta clutch from Cudoni, could you please help me to authenticate? It is very similar to one I own but I wasn’t too sure about the leather material around the opening. Is it water snake? Python? Either way it isn’t as smooth as the one I already own. Please help!

It is authentic; it appears the snake material is lifting just a bit; you might contact BV and see what they recommend for conditioning of their exotics leathers like this.

Hello,
I bought this from ebay. It is my first time buying newer Bottega Veneta. Listing said it is new gift and just didn't like it. But quality does not seem like it is from luxury brand. Could you help me with authentication so I can return it if it is fake. I really appreciate the help.
It was very hard to take the picture of the authentication tag because it was way inside the pocket where it is hard to reach.
Thank you.

I think it’s actually trying to be a “Disco” Bag, but no, it is not authentic.

It’s hard to see the authenticity tag, but from what I can see by really zooming in, it appears to be authentic.
I think the colour is Thunder and it’s just called something like Embossed Bifold Wallet.
I hate to say it, but IMO, very few of the newer pieces (Daniel Lee and later era) are of great quality - especially since Bottega moved to calfskin instead of lambskn. They just don’t have the luxury ‘feel’ H it again, it’s just my personal opinion)

Thank you so much for taking your time and looking into it. The leather feels good for me. I honestly am not used to luxury items so I don't really know what to look for. But edge coat has cracking already when it is supposed to be new. Also, little bit of glue sipped through the thread holes. It does look new so that is why I thought quality wasn't as nice as I expected. I guess it was just sitting in a very dry and hot place for a while. Once again, thank you so much for your time and effort to look it up for me.
