Bottega Veneta: Veneta Vs. Compana

For Mother's Day, Savvy Sis received a Bottege Veneta Compana tote from her hubby. I must say it's a classic and just beautiful. Of course after getting her new toy, we compared the difference between the Veneta and the Compana as I am debating if I want to add a Veneta hobo to my purse closet. To be honest, Bottega Veneta can do no wrong in my eyes, I can't leave the store without wiping drool off my face.

With that being said, I am going to eek out a slight complaint about the Bottega Veneta Hobo bag. Veneta hobo bag is a BV classic and the silhouette is simple and clean. But, I am always fishing for things inside the large hobo. Due to the flat design, it's sometimes difficult to have a clear view of what inside, which Savvy Sister finds frustrating especially when her toddler son is screaming at her. The Compana on the other hand has the hobo silhouette but because of its structure, 12 w x 8 h x 5 deep inches , Savvy Sis finds this bag a lot friendlier when looking for things inside the bag. Compana collapse beautifully when there is not much inside the tote but will expand to accommodate a gal's necessities. Veneta in medium retails from $1550 (17 x 16 inches) and Compana retails for $1980. Which do you prefer?

  5. Hmm I think I like the Compana better, the curvier shape is a more flattering silhouette than the more structural BV.

  9. I like them both from outside. I think the interior makes the difference.
