Okay, here’s what you’ve been waiting for – the Bottega Veneta Cocco Glacé shoulder bag in Dark Pacific Nero (not pictured). Seen at the Fall/ Winter 2016 runway, the Bottle Crocodile shoulder bag is crafted out of refined Cocco Glacé crocodile leather which was chosen for its texture and pattern to emphasise the appealing silhouette of the dark sides, enriched with the hand-made stitching along the black edges of the bag.

The structured purse charms with its alluring dark navy hues, and is a perfect size as an everyday bag to hold your essentials.

The S$18,250 Dark Pacific Nero beauty is exclusive to ION Orchard, and is the only piece in South East Asia. This is definitely a case of first come, first serve.
