Bottega Veneta is a like a warm cozy blanket; its brand of simplicity is familiar and comfortable. And as I enter the throes of wintry conditions south of the equator, Bottega’s ideas of luxury bags are keeping me warm. Except, BV’s Resort 2019 bag collection is not as familiar as I thought.
Don’t be alarmed though, it’s got all the recognizable signatures of intrecciato leather for your hearts content, but it also offers a delightful surprise in the way of a new saddle bag shape and a of-the-moment fanny pack! Maybe it’s not surprising considering hands-free bags and in particular, cross body bags are popular bag categories right now. Bottega Veneta and street style casual bags might not be entirely familiar but it’s walking down a fun lane. We especially love its iconic intrecciato weave in simple black leather sharply contrasted with candy colors straps and geometric pockets. Updating the house’s butterfly motif reminds the sophisticated Bottega customer that there’s always time for lighthearted fun.
