Bottega Veneta

The style of the season establishes a new language of intrecciato with a deconstructed, orthogonal weave that brings a looser and more modern sensibility to Bottega Veneta’s iconic craftsmanship. The bag is available in small, large and extra-large. In contrast to the classic intrecciato with its uniform strips, called fettucce, the width of the fettucce used is proportional to the size of the bag, creating a subtle sense of balance. The bag is made with a new variety of French Calf that has a silky texture, sturdy structure and natural look, a set of qualities that are difficult to achieve in a single skin, and which further add to the bag’s contemporary quality. The larger size is also available for men and alternates French Calf and suede, creating a play with different textures.

The silhouette of the bag is defined by a dome-shaped flap that is echoed by the curve of its long tubular handles, the result of their distinctively angled placement. The French Calf fettucce are bonded with natural-hued suede, leaving an unlined interior that reveals its precise construction, including the flat screws used to affix the bag’s handles and metal legs. The exterior is finished with a delicate saddle-stitch in cream-colored thread. The bag's relaxed and casual nature belies its complexity of craft; it is made from over 100 pieces.
