The ultimate bag guide from the iconic Italian brand Bottega Veneta
It’s now under the guidance of fashion’s newest designer fixation—Daniel Lee
The new creative director of Bottega Veneta, Daniel Lee, has been touted as the ‘The Quiet Radical’ in the very short time of his appointment. But, the Central Saint Martins’ graduate, who has previously worked for brands like Maison Margiela, Balenciaga and Donna Karan, has quickly made the venerable Italian leather goods brand into the label-to-own when it comes to bags. From a modern-day version of Bottega’s signature basketweave to the no-logo pouch bags, here is the ultimate bag guide from the hottest brand in town:
Bottega Veneta Pouch
The Pouch bag looks like an oversized version of a vintage coin purse. The soft, voluminous clutch in nappa leather is, in fact, a heritage style from the brand, which is updated to become one of the most coveted accessories from the label. Think of it as the new icon from BV. The bag also features a magnetic frame covered in folds of nappa leather—a material that also lines the inside of the bag.
Bottega Veneta Shoulder Pouch
The Bottega Veneta soft, voluminous shoulder bag in exceptionally supple, shiny calfskin features a magnetic frame and is perfect for day-to-night dressing. The Shoulder Pouch is the updated version of Bottega Veneta’s new icon, the Pouch. The style comes in a sumptuous colour palette and has now received a cult status of sorts.
Bottega Veneta Twist
The Bottega Veneta Twist bag is another one of the brand’s attempt to embrace refinement. It’s a soft clutch with knotted handle in woven leather and has a sack-like shape with a handle that looks like it’s casually knotted and slips around wrist. It’s one of freshest style you would see from a new-age luxury conglomerate and is perfect for someone who wants to look modern yet elegant.
Bottega Veneta’s Jodie
Bottega Veneta’s Jodie is a rounded hobo bag with signature knot detail on the handle. It exudes elegance and glamour and the spacious style has plenty of room for one’s daily needs. Plus, it looks uber chic when slung over the shoulder.
