Botkier Bianca Satchel | Cherry Red Lambskin Medium Satchel

Posted on: Dec 31

Botkier always has a slightly different take on handbags. Regular, almost predictable, styles are given some type of detail that makes them stand out. The designer has used buckles, fringe, and texture to make bags like the Morgan and Sasha unique.

The Bianca Satchel is another example of typical bag gone edgy. However, I'm not completely sold on it. The soft lambskin material is great, of course. The satchel silhouette is always one of my favorites. My hesitation is the different spin on this one.

In an effort to make it hip, no doubt, Botkier has given the Bianca a pair of rounded, slightly gathered and zippered front pockets that extend the width of the bag. Pardon my frankness, but I can't help but think of another pair of rounded something-or-others that grace the front of every woman. It almost looks like the Bianca is wearing an undergarment. That's not exactly what I want people to be thinking about when they check out a purse I'm carrying.
I am sure this isn't everyone's first impression of the handbag, though. Don't get me wrong; I love the idea of exterior pockets for easy access to lip gloss, cash, etc. Perhaps the cherry red version makes the detail stand out even more. In one of the darker colors available like black or brown, the pockets become much less noticeable and almost blend right in like hidden storage. Be sure to browse all of the color options before forming an opinion about the Bianca. You might find one to your liking.

On a positive note, the rich red is fabulous for this season, and the super soft lambskin is ideal for a comfortable bag. This Botkier also has several interior pockets, a zip top closure, and decorative flap with a turnlock detail. The Bianca might not be the ideal satchel, but it definitely isn't short on storage.
