Thought of the Day

I don't believe in morality, but I believe in ethical conduct as set out by His Holiness the Dalai Lama: "Ethical conduct = a way of behaving that respects others’ right to be happy".

style notes (part 1): botkier

inspired by frau blucher, encouraged by my forthcoming bonus, and taking advantage of the favourable dollar exchange rate, the sales and carrie's kindness in collecting it, yesterday i ordered a *botkier bombay satchel* in twilight, i.e. blue. here is the damage:

i opted for this colour because its distressed look makes it rather casual and goes well with jeans as well as with a day/evening dress. an added (ethical) bonus is that it is made of goat skin and not of baby skin (lamb) like my other bag.

below is the same model in black:

and the large version in twilight:

made of resistant italian leather, botkier bags are stylish but also extremely practical with their many pockets and recesses. frau baucher firmly states that her bag went through all sorts of adversities with praisable dignity. monica botkier adfirmed herself in the fashion panorama with her first collection in 2003. trigger bag is her classical piece. below an example in egg-shell colour:

what i like most of these bags is that they are still relatively unknown in europe.
