    Thumbs up Francesco Biasia Drawstring Shoulder bag in Dark Chocolate

    I'm sure some of you are already familiar with this brand but for those who are not, a little info.
    Francesco Biasia which was established in 1960's has now been under the same company, Burani Designer Holding, along with Coccinelle and Mandarina Duck since 2003. Biasia's headquarter is situated in Vincenza, Italy and admirably in the age of globalisation and cost cutting measures, the bags are still made with Italian leather and manufactured in Europe.

    Back to this particular bag, this Biasia is from previous season and not currently available in retail.
    I the design with its double handle flat strap, drawstring sides, external pocket and slightly slouchy looking body. Since I already have one Biasia bag, I can definitely attest to its great smooshy leather, excellent craftsmanship and substantial hardware. Mine has not been babied but after 2 years still look as good as new. However, I wanted to be sure this design is equally awesome before plonking down my hard earned cash. As always, I did some research before pulling the trigger so to speak.
    Luckily, I found someone who actually has this Biasia bag and whose judgement I trust; and her unequivocal opinion is, get it!!
    I stalked Ebay, consignment shops, anywhere I could think of for months and fortune smiled on me last month when I finally found one on Ebay UK with an excellent price and it's NWT!! Once I've gotten it authenticated, I did not hesitate at all (not even for the fact that I just bought a similar bag 2 weeks before and DH was definitely not happy!!)

    After using it daily for the past 2 weeks, I can safely say I love it! In real life it did not disappoint, the design is sleek, the leather is smooth, smooshy (a bit like my Balenciaga in that it just turns to puddle if there's nothing in it) with a slight sheen and the color is dark and rich, just like dark chocolate, yummy!!
    The zipper at the top keeps my belongings safe and the exterior pocket is convenient to store keys, ID card, etc. The handle fits easily on my shoulder even with a thick coat on and stays there comfortably. The size at 12"x 8"x 3" is perfect to fit in my Chameleon purse insert, not too big or too small for my frame.
    The hardware is discreet yet visible to add that extra luxury and while the weight is not as light as my Balenciaga, it is easy to carry and does not hurt my shoulders at all at the end of the day.
    The interior has a zippered compartment and 2 small pockets.
    One minor niggle is that the lining is 'blah' in the sense that it is monogram embossed brown cloth lining, therefore blends in with the rest of the bag and does not have that pop of color.
    This is a bag you can use for work yet move seamlessly to a more casual setting, multifunctional and gives more bang for your buck basically.
    I estimate the previous retail price to be around $400 but can be found on second hand market for half the price.

    I love your new bag frbspa! I remember almost buying this bag a while back.. the leather really is so amazing, and super glossy. Also I love the chocolate color, it's p-e-r-f-e-c-t for autumn. And it looks so good with the gold hardware.


    Thanks for sharing it
