Look... It's Bianca!

You may have seen them hanging on the shoulders of Paris Hilton, Jessica Alba, Penelope Cruz and Joey Deschanel. They are also ubiquitously appeared in fashion spreads of numerous fashion bibles of Vogue, Harpers' BAZAAR, Grazia and even The Daily Telegraph to name a few. Who are they? They are the Botkier bags.

Founded by photographer Monica Botkier, she received the call after having trouble in finding a bag that can load all of the essential stuff a photographer needs. At the same time she also longed to organize her life in an easier way thus Botkier was born.

The inspiration behind the bag label was drawn from the fast-paced and on-the-go lives of New York women. It was her Bianca bag that got fashionistas, celebrities and fashion editors on their feet thus earning itself the "It bag" title. Now, you can also join the likes of Hollywood celebrities by sporting the Bianca bag.

Why do we like it?
Practical and sexy. You can stuff almost anything inside it and be organized at the same time with multi-functional pockets and two front zip pockets to store your handphone, PDA, Blackberry Pearl or keys.

Tell me more about the materials...
This bag is made of supple and soft Italian lambskin. The interior is lined with luxurious suede lining and has custom hardwares such as large zippers, turn lock and exterior logo plate.

Does Bianca comes in one size only?
No my dear. The bag comes in three sizes - Bianca Bella clutch, Bianca Medium satchel and Bianca Large satchel.

And how many colors or finishes?
Good question. The Bianca bag is available in black, bone, gunmetal and nude cowhide with snake skin texture effect (featured inset).

How much she will cost me and where can I get it?
Hmm, the price has not been disclosed but to get your hand on this A-list bag, you can visit Maizen Maison today and get yours.
