When Matthieu Blazy stepped into his role as creative director with big shoes to fill, the world was watching. And, like his predecessor, he wowed, with his debut coming with a myriad of praise from fashion’s best and brightest. Stylists, influencers, editors, and celebrities took to the New, New Bottega instantaneously. Blazy has continued to hone in on his vision for the historic Italian House with each new collection.

Resort 2023 hones in on the luxe, redefining luxury through a new lens. A redefinition of cool, this collection begins with an ode to Bottega Veneta’s iconic history and finishes with a sense of realism.

A Closer Look at the Clicker Bag

One of Blazy’s newest designs debuted for Pre-Spring and is a hint at what Blazy’s focus will be this spring and beyond. The Clicker Bag is a modern take on Bottega Veneta’s storied brand DNA, taking its House intrecciato technique and reimagining it. The woven leather on this sleek shoulder bag is given a padded finish which is complimented by contemporary details like brass hardware.

The Clicker bag is a true representation of Bottega’s storied craftsmanship, crafted from soft lambskin leather, finished with piped seams and an unlined interior. Available in two sizes, small ($5,200) and medium ($5,500).

I love the tighter and smaller weave on this bag, makes it feel more sturdy and durable
The shape and the hardware also give it a modern touch!

I do like this bag a lot, at least from the outside. But it’s unlined and I prefer a lining for a woven leather bag. My BV Olimpia (larger size) has a beautiful lining plus a zipped pocket. Also the price is very high (but still less than the new Dior bag).

Same here, I love BV and all but the weave is something I couldn’t get into unless it’s tight like this or on the knot.

Meh! I get the craftsmanship but isn’t it a bit boring?

Very understated gorgeous, but not WOW enough to cough up $5K+. Maybe in the perfect color? I feel like Blazy is really toeing the line btwn understated and boring.

It’s beautiful and just slouchy enough (especially that medium in Fondant) but the price! Ouch. Style-wise it’s what I want in an everyday bag, but I don’t want to carry $5500+ around town every day!

Gorgeous bag but why is it not lined?

It’s to show the craftsmanship on the inside as well. It would be a shame to cover up such a beautiful (and expensive) weave. Bags are also beautiful finished on the inside. That’s why in general their bags are not ligned.

I also disagree. This is just to save cost in materials and labor. This is not the same as technique in cabat where it is double weave. This one is a padded intrecciato which is called Bombe. Theyve done this a lot before Blazy and even Lee. In fact all of my bottega bags by Tomas Maier were all lined as well. Except for Cabat. If you inspect this bag in person you will see holes which to me is equivalent to bags sold on some weekend market.

This is actually the same technique as cabat, as you can see how the weave goes on top to turn. It’s different fettucciass (long straps of leather) woven together. Classic intrecciato is a leather panel with cuts where they weave feccuccias through. This technique is straps woven separately hence the price difference. Maier did indeed use this technique already in the past.

Absolutely not the same technique. The turn you were seeing were tied inside. But it is definitely not a double weave. You can see the holes at the bottom and at the side. Cabat does not have holes.

It is the same technique, the fettuccia is just padded while on a regular cabat the fettuccia is flat.
You don’t have to believe me, just ask in store…

Respectfully disagree. All my BV woven leather bags have linings and a) it increases their utility and b) does NOT diminish my appreciation for the weave in the slightest.
