Earlier this year, just before the world went on pause, Bottega Veneta presented its fall 2020 collection at Milan Fashion Week to much anticipation. The presentation was only designer Daniel Lee’s third for the brand, but following previous handbag and accessory hits like the coveted Pouch and Cassette, the fashion world wondered what Lee would cook up next. Lee’s new designs and modern aesthetic has been embraced by many, and while we got our first glimpse at the brand’s newest bags last winter, we now have full details as Bottega Veneta’s fall collection just hit stores. Below we’ve rounded up the 3 key styles we’re loving this fall. Do you have a favorite?
Lee embraces Intrecciato weave this season, showcasing one of Bottega’s most iconic brand elements throughout the collection. For fall 2020, The Crisscross continues to evolve, described as a ‘transmitter of pure joie de vivre’. While the Fringe Crisscross clutch is eye-catching and more avant-garde, featuring supple leather strips cascading from the contorted silhouette, there is also a more paired back option. The BV Crisscross clutch is more suitable for everyday wear.

Another iteration of one of the House’s most recognizable emblems comes in the form of a new silhouette entirely. The Fold bag takes inspiration from Bottega’s incredible archive. It is defined by a body made completely of Intrecciato leather with a fold-over top. Its shape is unique and new, yet versatile and functional at the same time with its crossbody strap and multiple size options. Metallic studded embellishments add a playful twist to the otherwise monochromatic bag.

THE SHOULDER BAG
This unique new silhouette is hand-crocheted in tubular jersey with a flap closure and a circular press-button closure. A removable gold chain strap allows for dual-functionality as the shoulder style flap bag can also be carried as a clutch. One of Lee’s more novelty designs, this bag is the perfect statement accessory in either a neutral shade such as black or off-white, but the kiwi green adds a perfect pop of color.
