Black lambskin,natural snake calfskin, nickel and this one pictured above is in saffron lambskin. The Rivington collection comes as small priced at £190 or large at £238.

Next in the Botkier range is the  “Bowie” with its distinctive pyramidal leather stapping with decorative D-rings giving added support to the body of the bag. This Hobo comes in two colours,  black or gold as seen below at £180.

” Bowie” also comes as a  satchel, but you are restricted in colour choice with only the camel colo4r, made from cowhide. With an  asking price of £238 , would this get into your wardrobe? Tell us what you think of the “Bowie”on our Voulue Facebook page.

For those of you who  prefer the crossbody style there is the “Brooklyn”  a little less costly at £158.00, but crossbody bags are not my favourite type, I find them a little uncomfortable so this “cement” coloured bag wouldnt be for me.Though I like the design of the threaded leather working its way through the slouchy soft material of the body.

Voulue handbagsFinally I chose the Venice satchel (£240)  with the strong horizontal zips and vertical pulls, they give this bag a stregnth of character that I like, and this blue appeals to me, giving me a sense of freedom and rather less urban than the cement colours Botkier offers.

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on March 30, 2010

Botkier has just launched a new  family of collectable handbags , the  “Howard Street” collection. With five options in this line to choose from.

Voulue handbagsThe classic black bag accompanies most leading fashion houses, but Botkier have put this gem into several “skins”. The artist Andy Warhol  was the inspirtion behind this bright snake print creation with black tassels.

Voulue handbagsI’m not  sure where Andy Warhol fits into this design, I will have do some more research and I will let you know if I find out.

Voulue handbags This “Cement” lambskin with dimensions of  14″ x6.75″ x 7.5″   (5.5″ handle with 29.5″ shoulder strap) offers plenty of space for about town bag . With vertical zippers and tassel pulls, it gives a lot of style.

Voulue handbags“Espresso” lambskin with a  price tag of $465 , (about £186.00) this is my personal favourite, a classical subdued number, which to me, would be one for everyday use.

Voulue handbagsFinally on Howard Street is the Magenta, Monica Botkier the downtown New Yorker, has worked her magic once again for those that like to carry the eye catching member of the collection, and what do you think girls…and boys, dont be shy, lets us know what you think.
