Oh wow! These are so Bottega...


.... said no one ever. :annoyed:

Thank you for posting though, @OneMoreDay :flowers:
The words "printed" calfskin and "bonded" leather sound so much more sophisticated than "cutting costs while increasing prices" wouldn't you agree.

And I truly do not mean to dis anyone who likes the new styles. I will admit to being older and loving the old ones. BUt the fact is that this is one way for them to increase profits (as told to me by another handbag designer and manufacturer. These are not my thoughts.)

I ventured into the BV store in Crystals/Las Vegas and the sales associate told me that they are now only going to be sourcing from the top 3% of leather in the world as opposed to the top 4% thereby justifying the price increases. The fact that he said it with a straight face is impressive.
