Bottega Veneta’s Fall/Winter 2023 show was an immediate wow to handbag lovers. The collection was full of bags, both new and old.

Some of those bags utilized techniques spanning back decades, and others felt completely fresh, further tapping into Creative Director Matthieu Blazy’s takes on Bottega Veneta’s most storied House codes.

On the runway last winter, Bottega Veneta’s latest bag debuted, and today, that bag is hitting stores. Introducing the Bottega Veneta Gemelli bag.

Modernity Meets House History

BOTTEGA VENETA Gemelli Bag

Gemelli is described as a versatile design, embracing both duality and volume; the bag’s modern shape is juxtaposed by its classic Intrecciato. Defined by its modern half-moon silhouette, the bag’s circularity is further accented by a smaller crescent-shaped pouch that sits on top of the bag’s main compartment.

Bottega’s take on the multi-bag, the Gemelli, allows for multiple ways of carrying. At first, that small compartment mentioned above looks like purely a stylistic detail, but it can also be used as a handle. When carrying via the crescent handle, the Gemelli’s tubular leather strap can either be kept on or detached, allowing the bag to shift into 3 different shapes.

Crafted of lambskin Intrecciato leather and lined in calfskin, each compartment is secured with a zip closure. Dropping in 3 sizes, small ($3,400), medium ($4,100) and large ($4,900), special iterations of the Gemelli offer color-blocking with the compartments in contrasting colors.

It’s interesting in terms of design and construction but it’s not an attractive bag.

I like the bigger portion of the bag but the top is a little weird. I need to see in person.

I like that it shifts to 3 different looks … great concept. Looks best and most practical in the header image. Especially if you have items in the crescent pouch/handle part.

Unattractive take on their classic bag – so glad I invested in a repair with a new lining and edge braid on mine.

I love the conversion options and the overall shape harkens back to the BV of the 80s/90s designs like the Marco Polo bag. This is a beauty!

Would buy this if the small pouch was detachable. Design flaw on the part of BV.
