I decided I needed to clean out my closet and *ugh* get rid of the suffocating clutter!!
As I was mindlessly pulling things out of cupboards and sorting things into keep piles, I found my beautiful Bugatti bag. My perfect accessory.
I love my beautiful Bugatti bag!
I found this bag a few years ago in a thrift store for $10NZ and I could tell by the quality of construction, detailing and classic style that it needed to be mine. I don’t know a lot about it and I cant find any information about it on the net……. It appears to be quite old but really well looked after. Someone who momentarily lost their mind must have donated it.
The closest likeness I have found on the net is the Bugatti Bag produced by Hermes – exact same style (without the cut away dot detailing along the top), cored handles and studded base…. but the Hermes bag is missing the Bugatti detailing that mine has.
My bag has an inscribed EB Golden lock, front EB oval badge and insignia lining with gold manufacture details that say:
Produced and distributed by Ettore Bugatti S.R.L., Made in Italy N.0003
Dimensions are 10” high x 12” across front x 6” side depth at base.
What does this mean? I read somewhere that the Bugatti Veyron’s came with specially constructed luggage sets – Is there a car missing a bag…. or is my bag missing an accompanying luxury supercar? lol that would be amazing.
If anyone knows anything about the ‘Bugatti Bag’ drop me a comment. I love it so much and would love it even more if I knew it’s history! I did happen across an intriguing PDF article written about a meeting between Emile Hermes and Ettore Bugatti to discuss luggage and accessories you can read it here… could it be??
I don’t even know what type of leather it is constructed from is it cow? it is quite bumpy in texture……. Anyway if anyone has any ideas please let me know.
