If you can't tell what day it is or even how many days we've been in this circuit breaker (today marks day 23), you're not alone. It really does seem as though every day is practically the same. But let's not forget that Mother's Day is coming right up. Whether you've been spending (and perhaps, somewhat 'suffering') quality time with Mother 24/7 or have been forced to be physically distant, it's always nice to take a day to celebrate her.
As seen during Bottega Veneta's spring/summer 2020 runway show, the brand's latest oversized bag offering is the Maxi Arco Slouch bag. Measuring 44cm by 75cm by 18cm, it's the perfect size to pack in essentials for a short weekend staycation. Let's assume that after being together in such close quarters with other members of the family, she deserves some private time alone to recharge once this is all over.
The Maxi Arco Slouch bag, as the name suggests, is crafted in thin calf leather to give it that soft, almost floppy structure. It's designed to appear somewhat creasy so Mother doesn't have to be precious with it—just dump things in before heading out and she'll be able to throw this on the bed when she's back home.
Besides the green version at the top, the Maxi Arco Slouch bag also comes in three other neutral colours.
This being Bottega Veneta, a fashion house known for its craftsmanship and luxurious materials, the Maxi Arco Slouch bag will set you back SGD9,810. It's definitely an investment piece and something that perhaps could be passed down, because who doesn't love a bag that's about the size of a regular cabin-sized luggage? If you're interested in getting Mother this bag for Mother's Day, reach out to Bottega Veneta's personalised customer service at +65 9782 6596 and it will be delivered right to her doorstep.
If you're looking at other equally luxurious Mother's Day gifts, here are five other options that won't cost as much.
Leather medium Baguette bag by Fendi (SGD3,990 each)
The Fendi Baguette bag is a signature classic (so much so that there's now a men's version). Best thing about this is that it can be carried in multiple ways—by the top handle or attach the shoulder strap for a hands-free option.

Porcelain set of two cups and saucers by Gucci x Richard Ginori (approximately SGD810 each via MATCHESFASHION)
If she loves spending time at home and entertaining guests, this set of Gucci x Richard Ginori cups and saucers will be the perfect addition to her collection of porcelain.
