Who says Bottega Veneta has cornered the market on weaves? They might be famed for their intrecciato, but this loose and inexact woven leather is all Henry Beguelin. Their story is as freewheeling as their bags themselves. Thirty years ago, a group of friends who lived on the Mediterranean island of Elba started crafting leather goods from recycled materials. Decades later, that beach-life spirit is still going strong.
The sand-dune palette and ultra-relaxed slouch of the Sello make for the all-day, every-day summer bag I have been fantasizing about. Effortless and hand-touched, there is such a great textural quality to this foldover-flap bag, I’m instantly in love with it. Not to mention the fact that it puts visions of seashells and oceanfront sunsets in my head…which is exactly why I can’t wait to carry it on city trips, bringing a well-traveled vibe to crisp white tees and chunky-gem jewels.
