While you were busy decking the halls your favorite designers were not-so-quietly releasing their Pre-Fall 2020 collections and today we're giving you a look at Bottega Veneta's highly anticipated Pre-Fall bags. These days, anything new from the house of Bottega Veneta is highly sought-after by fashion editors, celebrities, influencers and everyday purse-lovers alike. And while some may argue that they miss the old Bottega, the goal for bringing on new creative director Daniel Lee was to modern the house with a fresh perspective while staying to true to the brand's heritage. Lee has done just that, introducing covtable new designs that feature innovative takes on Bottega's famous techniques. Though Lee's most notable design for the brand is the, now famous, Pouch Bag, his other styles feature house codes like the intrecciato weave, but in an exaggerated way. The brand's padded cassette bag is featured here for Pre-Fall 2020, with an updated chunky chain strap. Additionally, the oversized weave is seen on a massive fur tote which also has a chunky chain handle. Lee described the collection as "subtlety elevated, bold, and confident". All the while it celebrates "Bottega’s heritage made relevant for today”. View the bags below.
