Confession of an Asian StyleHolic

Emilio Pucci Miri Tunic

 This time I changed a bit of the format. Usually it is always focusing on the bag, and I will suggest the matching shoes, dresses and other accessories but this time, the attention is this beautiful Tunic dress.


 This tunic caught my attention because of its name, Miri. I just love it.  I don’t know why they named it Miri but one thing for sure I’ve been to Miri and me kind like love it. It is a very beautiful town and a place of the biggest cave in world, Niah. This tunic is everything about Miri and Niah, lots of trees, free and easy to look at. Made from silk, so expect something luxurious even you are in your most casual day.

Bottega Veneta Large Hobo


Gone are days when women carry straw bag to for groceries shopping. Some think straw basket only for those who still think they live in medieval period. The period where men go to war and women manage almost everything at home. It doesn’t change much today. Men up for work, women go to work but still doing almost everything at home. Sorry guys…. that’s a reality.


If you not into straw bag, you can get something like straw bag but it’s like almost 300 times expensive than straw basket from farmer market. Bottega Veneta Large intreccio natte hobo is kind of bag that Eva Longoria in Desperate Housewives will carry to Wisteria Lane potluck party.


From Wisteria Lane to jungle. Remember in MTV Newlywed starring now divorced Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. If you can’t remember this reality series, you must had read somewhere about Jessica LV camping drama. She brought her LV for hiking and camping adventure. What a bad choice. Somebody should advise her do not repeat the same mistake. LV is too fragile for trees, leeches and bears. Instead she should choose Bottega intreccio natte hobo. She can keep almost anything like cans of ‘chicken of the sea tuna’ and her little puppy. This big bag will provide extra space for her little cute puppy to breath.


I guess intreccio natte hobo is as strong as handmade straw basket. You can see it from the structure. The only that can refrains you from slashing VISA is because it has no closure. But its kind cool too. Like maybe you can try to go for clean and pure like ‘17 year old country virgin go shopping look’. Buy a few petals of roses or tulips and let the flowers blossoms through the open closure. 


BV available intreccio natte hobo available at for USD4300.00.

In Bagland, if someone said something about weave, it means Bottega Veneta signature weave. That clean, polished weave with irresistible shape, something that can’t stop us from slashing the cards. But not everything from BV is clean and polished weave!

BV called this wave weave. But I think they should add one extra word and name it Green ‘Tsunami’ Wave Weave. The wave is too strong and overdone on the leather. Kind like they put too much pressure on it. Just like tsunami, that kind like destroy the bag. If you carry this bag, you kind like just ready to sweep everything around you.

Or people will think that you are carrying pangolin. Friendly reminder.. In most country it is illegal to eat, to kill or to keep pangolin. But, for BV weave fetishes maniac, they can claim right “hello, we don’t eat, kill or keep pangolin, we just carry it.

The spirit of tiger has been mysteriously possessed Bottega Veneta (BV) designer sand it just won’t go away. Fortunately, this time the spirit has lead the BV team to design an exclusive brown tiger stripped intrecciato woven karung frame. Unlike maxi tiger print bag that look like the stripes from retarded or mutant tiger, intrecciato karung looks much better.

It looks ancient. Like something from an antique store. But we all know how much the antiques cost. Just claim it belongs to someone famous and the price will be like sky high. Intreciato karung may cost that much too. So after taking in all this assumption, this clutch will be off from rack in no time.

The signature detail for almost all BV bags is the fine woven craftsmanship Same goes with this triangular, brown leather frame clutch. To complete everything is tonal suede lining and fastening internal pocket. Wearable and definitely set to be another classic BV.

Pair BV intreciato karung with evening wear with some colours. Too much pale makes you look gloomy. Dead pale is only for those who are already dead.
