We honestly think the concept of a "man purse" is so, so dated. If you really like the bag, just freakin' buy it! Doesn't matter if it's from the women's or men's section. Our fave boys from world-famous K-pop group BTS are setting the example! Would you sport this uber-current Bottega Veneta number they all seem to love (and own in nearly every color)?
It's officially and aptly called the Cassette, by the way. The frenzy started with cheerful lead dancer J-Hope, who stepped out into the airport carrying the plush, puffy black version.
Then followed rapper and producer Suga, spotted slinging a matchy iteration in the regular burgundy Intrecciato weave.
Some days later, baritone vocalist V joined in on the fun. His sleek tan pick, perhaps an ultra-luxe take on hand-woven baskets, is a serious contender for our top fave among the three.
Naturally, yours truly, both a fashion fiend and a hardcore ARMY, visited the BV store to examine the piece for myself. I was particularly attracted to this gorgeous raspberry-wine hue:
And as for the prices? P106,500, while Hoseok's padded one is sellin' for P146,500. Mic drop.
In case you needed a bit more convincing, stylish local names Vince Uy and Daryl Chang plus actress Bea Alonzo adore theirs, too.
We bet the Cassette's topped your wish list now. Leave us your thoughts in the comments below!
