    Default Botkier Trigger Hobo Bag

    Botkier Trigger.jpg

    Do you remember the story behind Botkier? I do. Monica Botkier was obsessed with handbags, but she struggled to find the "perfect" one. So she did something many of us wish we could do, she created the handbag of her dreams complete with all of the features she desired most. But when others saw her creation, they wanted one too. And that is how Botkier was born. That original handbag was called the Trigger and even though the original Trigger is no longer in production, it is still my favorite style from this designer. The Trigger name still lives on though, in other pieces inspired by the original. An excellent example is the Botkier Trigger Hobo Bag you see pictured here!

    This lovely piece may not be the original, but it shares with it some of the same characteristics. The signature Y is featured across the front, with two diagonal zippers making up the fork. I also like the contrast edging. The blue really pops against the black, giving this bag just a little extra touch of interest.

    Not sure how I feel about the new lower price points. I mean, the prices are great but I wonder if the quality is the same.

    How much did the original Trigger Bag retail for? Like $595 or somewhere in that range? There are so many contemporary designers now, that they have to have a lower price tag to compete. But I can totally see what you're saying though with the quality.. is it the same?

    It makes me wonder. But yes, I think you're right. The original Trigger was in the $600 range if I remember right.
