In 2016 Bottega Veneta celebrated its 50th anniversary, as well as creative director Tomas Maier’s 15th anniversary at the helm of the brand. For this special occasion, Bottega also brought back a collection of limited edition heritage designs to celebrate its history.
One of the most talked-about of these bags is the Bottega Veneta The Lauren 1980 Clutch, which was originally designed for Lauren Hutton in the movie American Gigolo in 1980. This clutch has been reworked in the same shape and red hue, aptly named Gigolo Red. Classic intrecciato nappa leather is used for the oversized clutch, and there is a magnet button flap closure. The inside features suede lining and a zipped pocket.
Lauren Hutton walked in Bottega Veneta’s anniversary show with the exact clutch she carried in the movie, which has been held in the Bottega Veneta archives in Italy since the movie was filmed in 1980. This clutch has already received a great reception with shoppers, and if you love it as much as I do, buy it before it sells out. Order via Bottega Veneta online for $2,150 or you can pre-order it at Neiman Marcus.
Bottega Veneta is a brand that deserves all the praise and accolades it receives. The totes exude understated elegance, and a number of the current collections are the most fascinating for me personally from the brand in a little while. Bottega Veneta Travel Bag Price Replica continues to style bags which are contemporary and eye-catching while also being instantaneous classics. No more Bottega Veneta bag I own ever feels outdated or past its prime, since the manufacturer has discovered a way to design totes which I will gladly carry year after season and year after year. When we shared with a trailer of Bottega Veneta Cruise 2018 luggage, a lot of you had been just as enamored from the group as I was, and now I have a closer look at one of the standout bags from the collection: The Piazza.We adored this bag so much when we first saw the Cruise 2018 bags that we used it to direct the post because we believed it would be the most enticing new layout. This tote has everything I adore from Bottega Veneta; it is elegant and sleek while still being bold and distinct. The Piazza is named after the square that functions as the heart of a city. Back in Italy, the Piazza is the middle of public life, and this tote will be the middle of your look. The brand refers to the tote as refinement and discretion intersected with whimsy and vibrance. It is classic and truly elegant, as all of my favorite Bottega Veneta totes are. The design of this bag allows it to be a casual bag that can both be casual or dressy, and there are 3 distinct sizes: mini, small, and medium. The Bottega Veneta Piazza can be best described as a traditional top-handle bag with an elegant, contemporary twist. Tomas Maier designed this bag to be unbelievably functional, from the optional shoulder strap (that is a statement piece itself) into the inside pockets and soft structure.
