Every designer has their signature. Bottega Veneta’s is of course their woven leather, known as Intrecciato. When a designer departs from their signature the end product can turn out totally wrong or better yet the end product can turn out magnificently. Bottega Veneta rarely misses with their bags. Some say they err on the side of caution, but I believe they know what a quality timeless product is and they continue to stand behind their work.
Bottega Veneta Handbags and Purses(Page 9)
We hope you all enjoyed our exclusive Bottega Veneta day on Tuesday! It was the first exclusive day at Purse Blog and we were so thrilled to have collaborated closely with Bottega Veneta. My reviews of the bags were not altered just because we had the chance to review them, I truly loved every bag. There is an appreciation factor that goes along with Bottega Veneta.
One of the many reasons I love Bottega Veneta is for the understated elegance the brand conveys. When it comes to celebrities wearing Bottega Veneta, the crowd is typically the Hollywood starlets that we all adore for their personal style, sophistication and class. A long line of celebrities can be seen in the fabulous designs from Bottega Veneta and here are some of our favorites:
Penelope Cruz: In Cruise 2009/10 Fever Spring Gabardine Jacket [$1,900], Fever Jersey Top [$260], Fever Spring Gabardine Pant [$790], and Fall/Winter 2009 Whiskey Satin Karung Shoes [$860]
Earlier today we brought you information on how the Bottega Veneta Cabat is constructed. You all adore the Lilac Cabat we featured. I love it too. The Lilac Cabat is simply elegant. Truth is that a different Cabat had my heart all along and finally I have the pleasure of featuring it for you all.
One of the staples for Bottega Veneta is Intrecciato. Intrecciato is the technique of weaving the leather, which as all of you know is now synonymous with the company. We wanted to find out more information about the history of Intrecciato from Bottega Veneta, how did it become such a large part of the company today? Here is what we were told:
An elongated clutch, the Bottega Veneta Parure Karung is inspired by decorations from haute couture. The beauty of this bag is that it is a clutch, but Bottega Veneta heard the requests from their audience and added a strap to enable comfortable shoulder wearing. It is recommended to wear it over your right shoulder, such that your arm does not cover the beautiful embroidery.
Updating the classic Veneta, the Bottega Veneta Tornabuoni Maxi Veneta is named after the technique used to create the dimension on this bag. The effect is created by carefully double twisting individual strips of leather. This technique is seen vertically across the entire bag. The process is time consuming and complex to accurately perfect and position. Bottega Veneta always finds a way to revamp their classic bags to offer a new interpretation that stays true to the original but brings new fresh innovation forward.
This is not a clutch, it is a piece of art that belongs alongside Queen Elizabeth’s Crown Jewels, locked up in the Tower of London. Everything about it is extraordinary, from the overall design to the craftsmanship and work that goes into making it. And though this is a Knot clutch, which is a classic from Bottega, this rendition is in a league of its own.
When most people think of iconic bags from Bottega Veneta, the Knot clutch comes to mind. The Bottega Veneta Knot Clutch recently celebrated its 30th anniversary with an exhibit that traveled worldwide featuring over 50 renditions of the Knot. Upon taking the reins as Creative Director in 2001, Tomas Maier recognized the special quality of the rounded box clutch. Maier created the knot closure which he modeled after a leather knot.
