I’m sure by now most of you’ve seen Bottega Veneta’s The Pouch in editorials and numerous street style photos. Creative Director Daniel Lee’s modern interpretation of the Lauren clutch has catapulted to a highly covetable ‘it” item, although I think it will become a classic and keeper for the long haul.
I waffled, perhaps too long, on which variation and color would suit me best. There are four sizes and they sell out as quickly as they’re listed. The larger two options are generous in scale and come strictly as a clutch. My favorite, the Pouch 20 above, is a perfect size and has the bonus of an optional crossbody strap. I like the versatility it offers for transitioning between day and night and its compact size for travel. The smallest of the four is a “charm” miniature version with a leather cord to carry as a wristlet.
