When a major luxury brand passes a huge milestone, like a 50th anniversary, it’s customary to create special collections in celebration. That’s like buying everyone else presents on your birthday – not that we’re complaining. When it comes to sophisticated and high-quality handbags, Bottega Veneta’s respected Italian craftsmanship has been keeping bag lovers happy for 50 years, while Creative Director Tomas Maier has served at the helm for the past 15. For this auspicious occasion, the brand has released its new ‘City Knot’ collection for Spring/Summer 2017.
This new style borrows a key factor from Bottega Veneta’s beloved ‘Knot’ clutch, giving it a fresh update by reimagining the knot in gold hardware as a closure. This detail is only one part of the collection’s allure – the bags also come with long straps, handsome facades of Capra Lissata and French Cow leather , and three interior pockets for added functionality. Each style pays tribute to elements from Bottega Veneta’s 1970s archives, lending the bags a slightly retro feel. Discover this gorgeous collection in our gallery below.
