For Fall 2023 Bottega Veneta Debuts a Variety of New Bags

From refreshed versions of the Sardine bag to new woven pieces, Matthieu Blazy continues to impress

If there’s one thing that can be expected from a Bottega Veneta show, it’s that you should expect to be wowed. Three seasons in, Matthieu Blazy continues to hone in on his vision for the heritage Italian House, exploring traditional Italian craft with a contemporary finish. The final chapter of his trilogy of Italia shows, this third installment continues to focus on Bottega Veneta’s past infused with elements of the present. The collection draws upon ancient mythology and Futurism combined to create a beautiful parade of looks.

““A parade: The alchemy of the street is in the difference; who will you meet? What is
around the corner? Who will amaze you? It is the surprise of the encounter that has importance.” Matthieu Blazy

A Handbag Parade

Blazy expressed how the idea of an Italian parade was inspirational to his design process, the idea that people from all walks of life can come together and somehow fit. This collection is a testament to that. There are a wide variety of pieces, from flowy dresses to sleek outerwear, and the collection is also a rich mix of textures. As for the bags? The show was quite literally a parade of handbags featuring a wide variety of shapes and silhouettes.

Models clutched multiple new versions of the Sardine bag, some mini, some large, and some featuring Murano glass handles. There are plenty of new wearable Intrecciaro bags as well, and this collection proves that the double bag trend is here to stay at Bottega. Blazy’s Bottega has been known to be interesting and innovative but wearable all the same, and this collection is no different.

Whoever wrote this article clearly didn’t pay any attention whatsoever. The fact that the title included “debuts a variety of new bags” is laughable. Everyone is talking about how he barely released anything new and, in fact, pretty much just put out bags that already existed and made them larger, OR did little unnecessary tweaks to said recycled bags. As a whole this show was so utterly disappointing as far as the accessories came. The ready-to-wear was cool, innovative and a knockout, just wish he would’ve put that spark into his handbags. It’s just the bread and butter of the brand, but wtv. Oh, and not to mention, you just KNOW that these bags will have ridiculous price pints of like 10k or higher. They’re back to making old lady elegant bags (that made them no money or press) but putting a Hermès price on them, yeah that’ll work 😂

“Old ladies” aren’t interested in carrying these bags; they don’t measure up to the expected echelon or status that they are accustomed. Good try, nonetheless.

Some of the bags look plastic. Maybe they are?

Love how Matthew incorporates Italian’s famed Murano glass and all of the bags are just wow!
The paper bag-like bag (#13) is cute too

The Fendi bags were so much more innovative and had more sumptuous looking leather!

Nice, but. A missed opportunity insofar as not providing a slouchy cross-body bag with a woven strap long enough to rest at the hip. Last/this year’s Medium Knot Bag almost hit the mark. But the strap is about 10-12″ too short, resting the bag instead, at the waist. Note how NONE of their website photos show it being worn by a human, so you don’t know it unless you try it on in store: https://www.bottegaveneta.com/en-us/medium-knot-bucket-black-730676V2BE08803.html

I’m a bit confused, as the link you sent, shows a person wearing the bag?

Oh gosh James, you’re so right. Guess I didn’t scroll far enough to find our guy-in-green.

Blown glass fish for handles on two of those bags, correct?

Bags 12 and 40 remind me of bags I’ve seen from Tissa Fontaneda. https://eu.tissafontaneda.com/pages/stories Having seen TF’s bags in person, I prefer some of their models to what’s showing here from BV. Plus the TF bags are significantly less expensive. True, the leather isn’t woven, they use a completely different technique, but you still get a textured vibe.
