Enjoy a little bit of Bottega Veneta
Sadly we can't all stretch to a Bottega Veneta box clutch or shoulder bag - but if this house of Italian finery sings to you as it does us, you might be consoled by the idea of a tiny little bit of its magic, in the form of one of its neat little card holders. Each one is made from the same luxury leather used to make the bags, prepared in Bottega's signature giant scale weave.
For those who live in a major city, a 'pass case' or card holder such as this one has become an absolute necessity as we wend our way through a maze of automated doors, security checks, train stations and other gateways where we're required to 'tap in'. Here at the Bag Lady we think it's important that the case you use for your passes makes you feel good when you look at it - because we have to flash the things a good dozen-or-so times a day!
BV's card holder is no cheap option at £160, but unlike your plastic case, it won't disintegrate after a season's use. We also think it would look rather fabulous in our handbags...
