Back in December Daniel Lee at Bottega Veneta finally graced fans with some colorful newness in the form of beautiful bags, accessories and RTW. The collection, Dubbed Salon 01, was a continuation of resort and like we’ve come to expect from Lee, it was presented in an entirely unique way.
Lee chose to forgo the digital format and instead presented the collection in a closed, intimate setting that included various objects to help tell a story. The presentation included a 3-part book series with a backstage look at what it takes to design a collection, a glimpse into the process of design and a collection of Lee’s sources of inspiration. Finally, the series gave a complete look at the private physical presentation that had taken place two months prior in October.
One of the standouts from Salon 01 is the unique and incredibly sleek Point Bag. The Point bag is new to Bottega Veneta’s lineup this spring and it is sure to be the brand’s next big hit. Lee’s interpretation of one of this season’s micro trends—angular cut-outs and lines, the Point Bag embodies Bottega Veneta’s commitment to refined luxury that is unique in style while remaining expertly crafted.
Just in time for spring the Point arrives in beautiful hues like peach and blue as well as neutrals like black and white. One of the most interesting versions is the brand’s quilted leather lambskin, though the Point is available in smooth calfskin as well. Similar to Bottega’s iconic Pouch, the Point has a framed clam-shell opening which allows for a pretty roomy interior. Featuring a leather strap for shoulder carry as well as the option to hand carry it via the bag’s top handle, the Point comes in two sizes: small and classic. The Small is new as part of Salon 01, while the classic was released for resort. Retail in smooth calfskin is $2,250 and $3,200 respectively.
Different in shape while remaining sleek with its clean lines and angular cut out, the Point is high on our wishlists and sure to be a big hit among handbag lovers too. Discover the full range and purchase now via Bottega Veneta.
