Bottega Veneta Bag Review (Is It Worth It?) This bag got a MAJOR refresh with a huge rap star size chain. The original Bottega bag was not as cute. It never spoke to me. When the chain cassette handbag was released I was like WOW, this is a whole new level. I was able to get mine a little discounted by buying it pre-loved (but always authentic). Today we are going to do a FULL review of everything you need to know!
Bottega Veneta Bag Review (Chain Cassette Bag)
Is it heavy?
Yes, but surprisingly you get use to it. The chain is one of the heaviest chains I’ve ever felt on a handbag. If you have back or shoulder issues this is not the bag for you.
I feel like if the chain was flimsy we would complain. For the price tag it seems right that a really nice chain would come with the bag.
The chain is NOT removable- but you can wear it by holding the top of it or using the long chain over the shoulder (or crossbody).
Is it worth the price?
For $4500, you are getting an amazing quality handbag. The chain is sturdy and really a showstopper. The leather is puffy and luxurious. However, only you can decide if your bank account is ok with dropping a few grand.
It recently took a huge price increase! It was originally $3900.
It’s a unique bag and I don’t see it in “the wild” very often, if ever. I’ve seen the older style out in public but not the one I have.
Can I buy it on sale?
You can buy it pre-loved. I bought mine here and was able to get it for a cheaper price. This website is 100% authentic and I’ve bought tons of bags from here. It’s the reason I’m able to own as many as I do.
Does it come in other colors?
Yes- tons of colors! Mine is the color “almond” but there is white, black, yellow, blue, and many others!
Can I wear it year round?
Yes but spray it with this first! This will protect your leather so that if you get rain drops or even lipstick you can wipe it off without ruining you bag! I have a whole video walking you step by step on how to spray your bag if you are nervous or not sure how.
