The success of Daniel Lee at Bottega Veneta seemed to take hold when he released The Pouch. In fact, The Pouch became a modern day it-bag, with everyone scrambling to buy a version of the luscious, oversized leather bag and many other brands following suit to design a similar oversized, buttery soft clutch. The bag isn’t always the most practical when it comes to carrying (especially if you opt for the large size and are typically a fan of a shoulder strap), but it was an immediately recognizable fashion statement. Many people told me, they didn’t need it, but they needed it – you know?

After such a great success, consumers are often hungry for what’s next from the brand. When we shared the Bottega Veneta The Point, you had mixed reactions. The new bag from Daniel Lee is reminiscent of the famed Bottega Veneta The Pouch but with some interesting added details: namely the structured, magnetic frame top with the triangle point.

I wanted to see this bag in person, and the version I got to check out is a meticulously stunning work of art. Behold, this version of the Bottega Veneta The Point, which is crafted from 100% crochet lambskin with a tonal magnetic frame top. This exact rendition of The Point is a bright green color, called Parakeet, and while it isn’t on BottegaVeneta.com yet, it should show up soon. There are two sizes available, small and medium, and this is the small size. As far as the lambskin crochet goes, there’s another equally stunning medium option in Spearmint, which is what blue-hued bag dreams are made of.

As far as the design, the bag is a pouch like shape with a framed, magnetic top handle with the namesake Point. There is a removable shoulder strap that attaches to the interior of the bag with little indentations on the frame for each side of the strap to sit in nicely when in use. The interior doesn’t have a pocket, but you wouldn’t really need that as it’s not meant to carry much. One thing I must mention is the heft of this bag – this bag is heavy. Now, I didn’t get to hold a plain leather version, and the crochet lambskin will for sure add to an already heavy frame, but I do think majority of the weight comes from the magnetic metal frame.

There are many different versions of The Point already, from the classic in a range of unexpected but delightful colors as well as other intricate interpretations like this one covered in shells. The Point shown will be $5,400 and you can discover more of this new design on BottegaVeneta.com now.

Oh god Meg please don’t lol it’s such a tacky bag that’s just got the slightest bit of hype only due to the fact that they put every celebrity influencer in the ad campaign ? Who even buys Versace purses anyways? They haven’t been relevant in the bag game since like the 90’s… do yourself a favor and save your money.

I also have a Versace bag from 2015. The quality is much better than Chanel and more classic than the current Bottega design. Talking about influencer, LOLLL Bottega deleted its social media to focus on influencer marketing. Hypocrisy at its finest.

I have several Versace bags. Great quality, love their leather and colors. I am thinking about La Medusa, I already have Palazzo and Virtus bags. Years ago I bought a red wallet and it’s still great. Tastes are not the same for everyone pinksky777.

Pinksky777 exactly I’m glad you admit that some taste are tacky some are not. Your comment to Doriana is tacky, rude and disrespectful. Actually most of your comments on this forum are always sprinkled with rudeness, dismissive of other people’s taste if not same as yours.

this comes as no surprise, she’s condescending, entitled, rude and just clueless. Used up boyfriends and her parents buy her things. She was hated at her job for being such snobby brat. She acts all “love and peace, don’t hate on others” but she’s the exact opposite. A rude, lying nobody that real people hate

Yes, she is allowed to dislike a tacky bag.
but she is not allowed to criticize others’ taste (“Who even buys Versace purses anyways?”)
or to tell others what to buy (“do yourself a favor and save your money”)
After all if I tell you, “Who buys that ugly Pouch which looks like a butt crack?”
Or I could have said “Do yourself a favor just invest in stocks”
Big difference

Actually, they are allowed to criticize other people’s taste. I don’t see any rule that says otherwise.

There’s also no rule saying I can carry my poo on a plastic bag. And piss everyone off because of its smell. It doesnt mean I have to do it.

This reminds me of the “bag” my grandma put her yarn and knitting needles in; I can’t imagine paying $5400 for it.

Never-mind about the look – the signature Bottega Veneta craftsmanship is not strong in this one.

The signature Bottega Veneta craftsmanship hasnt been in DL’s design for quite a while. The leather strips in his Pouch and Jodie are two big making the bags less snuggly and lean towards more structured. The only signature BV in his designs are the BV handle and the reimagined hobo. Although the price of those are too astronomical.

Yeah that crotchet lambskin is just not doing it for me at ALL, does not look like the signature BV craftsmanship. Don’t get me wrong, I trust that it’s much more difficult to do than it seems, but… it just doesn’t look it at all.

Cute but the price is beyond RIDICULOUS for what it is. Plus they keep trying to remake the OG pouch in different variations and it always looks so tacky. Stick with the OG always. Just bought another large pouch actually in black intrecciato and the sales guy kept trying to sell me the point bag ??? like… that’s not the vibe. You either get it or you don’t.

I agree, $5400.00 is an outrageous price for this bag. No thanks.

I think it would make a nice summer bag. But, I would not pay that much for it.

Me too! It’s hard to tell from photos, but the craftsmanship does not look poor to me and it looks funky and cool with the retro crochet nod. I much prefer it to run-of-the-mill bags with huge logos or a monogram on it!

I appreciate the craftsmanship and effort that goes into making this bag, but I feel that the pointed handle is inconvenient to carry.

I also appreciate the craftsmanship of BV woven bags, but their price point is ridiculous. Why?

$5400??? Looks like something you picked up in Target.
And we thought Chanel was overpriced…It’s a bargain compared to this.

Yes! It was about this bag – and I was revisiting it after seeing the bag wondering if it is the next hit for BV/bags
