Botkier Bianca Bella Bag, Handbag of the Day
Alliterative though the name may be, there is nothing particularly poetic about the Botkier Bianca Bella Bag, but it does have a softer look and feel than some of the fall bags released recently. It is made of black leather, but it is a soft lambskin, and the bag is unstructured with slight ruching at the front pockets, so there are no hard edges in the design. The bag has a narrow shoulder strap and a top flap closure, which fastens with a satin brass turn-lock. There are a total of 5 pockets on the bag, both outside and within the suede-lined main compartment, making it very practical as well as attractive. It measures 8"H X 11½"L X 3"W, the perfect size for a versatile, everyday handbag. $445.
