Newsflash: Bottega Veneta to Discontinue Cabat next year!

Bottega Veneta will be discontinuing their Nappa Intrecciato Cabat (small size) next year. If you’re unsure of what the Cabat looks like, I’m sure it will ring a bell if I tell you that it’s the one that looks like a woven open-top shopping basket/straw basket.

The house of Bottega Veneta only produces 250 of these each year, and like any limited edition piece, it comes with what BV calls a “number plate”, bearing the item number out of 250 that is embossed on the gold plaque on the interior of the bag (ie. xxx/250). So, if you want to get your hands on one, you’d better snap one up now!

Some may think that it’s not worth getting because it’s going to be discontinued, but because of the sheer limited quantities produced annually along with the “number plate”, I think that you needn’t worry about its value as such. It is sure to become a collector’s item and I wouldn’t be surprised if the price escalates after it is discontinued!

Available at Bottega Veneta, Star Hill Gallery, for RM 17,000++ or SGD 6,000++

Please note that only the Cabat in small size will be discontinued. The medium and the large remains a BV classic.
