Botkier Angie Satchel | Soft Pleated Lambskin Leather Handbag

Posted on: Jan 22

The details on this Botkier bag are subtle and not nearly as flashy as some styles available today. Devoid of fringe and studs that even many other Botkier handbags have, the Angie satchel is understated but not too simple in design and definitely not boring.

I wouldn't call the Angie particularly exciting, but it does have some very pretty features that catch my attention. The front panel is gathered in the middle with tight pleating to create a focal point and give the handbag an appearance of being relaxed and slightly slouchy without actually losing any shape.

There are pockets on either side of this Botkier satchel that have the same pleated detail but on a much smaller scale. Because of their size, I'm not sure exactly how practical they are for carrying much around, but the ruching is a nice decorative touch.

I like most of the aspects of the Angie's design including the soft lambskin material and color options available, such as this berry purple, but I do have one complaint about the design. The double rolled handles seem fine, although a bit short to be comfortable for all shoulders. It's the single strap option that I'm not in love with. The chain insets on the strap aren't my favorite, but I dislike the detail more when combined with the fact that the strap is not detachable. When not in use, the strap just flaps around unattractively with the shiny chainlink making it obvious.

Despite what I consider its main design flaw, the Angie is still a well-crafted, quality satchel with some pleasing features. This mid-sized version of the design retails for $545.
