So I'm browsing eBay tonite and came across a couple of Botkier Sasha Duffle bags that are listed (I already have one, but was just looking to see how much they're selling for) I pulled up the pics & enlarged them, and noticed that the leather on these bags looks drastically different than the leather on my bag. So I went to the Botkier website and looked at the Sasha bags there and saw the same thing. The leather on these Sasha bags looks much smoother and not as "mushy" as the previous season's bags. The leather on my Sasha is a lot like Gustto's leather on the Baca bag - soft, smooshy, wrinkly and even "bubbly" in places. I had read in a few other posts, that the leather on Botkier's F/W bags were pretty inconsistent. Even the Bianca bags - which have always been really soft - weren't nearly as nice as the previous season's bags. If that's the case, I'm so glad I got my Sasha when I did. I absolutely love that bag and the leather is big part of the reason. I don't know if I'd like the bag as much if the leather wasn't as soft & mushy. I also think the soft leather is what gives the bag it's unique look & shape - stiffer leather would change the look of the bag completely. Does anyone here own a Sasha from previous season AND one from the new F/W line? If you don't own one (from each season), maybe you've seem them IRL (both previous season's and the current ones) and can give me your thoughts. If they did change the leather, that was pretty dumb! I hate when designers do things like that - they make a bag that's a HUGE hit, then when they come out with new colors for the following seasons, they go and change the leather or some of the features. Don't they get that it's the ORIGINAL designs that made the bags such a hit in the first place?!
