Out with the old, in with the new. Vlad and I want to welcome 2007 to the Purse Blog and to all of you! We spent a low key evening together (after his 17 hour drive from Ohio to Ft Lauderdale, what a guy ;)). With the start of double-0-7, there is an up and coming designer on the horizon. Young, ambitious, and the son of Bottega Veneta’s owners before Gucci Group took over, Gabriellecorto Moltedo. This 26-year-old is breaking into the scene with his launch of luxury accessories named so perfectly, Corto Moltedo. Net-A-Porter carries a variety of handbags by this new designer which showcase his range; combining Italian luxury and funky detailing. At 26, this young man has already designed hit bags and we are sure to see and hear more of him in 2007. Below you can see his range from a lush leather shoulder bag, to a shiny gold and star charmed clutch, to a practical fold over shoulder bag.

    I guess if you’re a wealthy former fashion house owner with a talentless son who isn’t doing anything with his life you give him his own accessory line?… Genious!

    The top and bottom bags are especially atrocious.

  • Horrified Fashionista

    I agree! I think the bags are horrendous, especially the last one!!
    What was he thinking when he designed them?!?!?!

  • fashion in the making

    Scary looking bags for my taste of fashion nothing compares to other bags. Why is it that now all or almost all rich kids want to design there own line, leave it to us that study and work our ass off to create something with talent and time.

    Not sure how could be twenty six in ’07, since he was about four when I used to hang out with his half-brother(whose father was the real founder of Bottega) in ’78. Oh, well.

  • Mary

    I really like those bags.. maybe the last one isn’t so great but the small ones are fabulous!

  • Dutch Fashion critic

    You gotta give it to him though, that he tries and make something different. They might not all be beauties, but at least he is trying. Does anybody know how the quality of these bags are?

    Who cares, Corto is gorgeous!

  • Morgan Whillans

    Corto Moltedo is one of the most refreshing designers to come around in a long time. His bags are made with the most sumptuous leathers and skins and quality hardware. I bought his Elisabeth in White Python and the Lady Priscilla in black while I was in Paris. Check out his new line I promise you will love it.
