I honestly haven’t loved any Botkier style since the Trigger. For those of you not nearly as addicted to handbags as me, the Trigger was Monica Botkier’s first style, and in my mind, her best. My steel large Triggers was my first high-end handbag, and it set me back $595 if I recall correctly, and that was 4 or 5 years ago? As a bit of nostalgia, here’s my very first picture with it:
Sadly, my Trigger wasn’t getting enough love in my closet recently, so I sold it to a fellow purse-addict and now they’re both happy!
Apparently, by popular demand, Monica’s decided to bring back the Trigger for a limited time on Botkier.com. Sadly, the bag is only available in black and brown, and it appears to be the smaller size, not the large like I had. Who knows, maybe if this encore presentation of the classic Trigger is well-received, she’ll bring back more colors and sizes.
Update 3/3/09: here’s the trigger at Shopbop:
It’s also available at Luna Boston.
