Founded in Vicenza, Italy in 1966, Bottega Veneta initially specialized in artisanal leather goods before emerging as an iconic luxury fashion house. Known for its signature intrecciato weave, a braiding technique conceived by founders Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro, the brand continues to honor its heritage with handwoven bags, wallets, footwear, and jewelry. Appointed in 2018, creative director Daniel Lee revitalizes Bottega Veneta’s heritage and house codes with a modernist perspective. Structured leather jackets, skirts, and tailored trousers highlight the brand’s subtle sophistication while silk blouses, cozy knits, and trench coats exude femininity with refined embellishments and colorful prints. Relaxed shoulder bags and oversized totes are remodeled in a fluid leather and finished with the brand’s intrecciato leatherwork, while clutches and minaudières epitomize timeless luxury. Faithful to its motto, ‘when your initials are enough’, Bottega Veneta’s logo-free design showcases a commitment to its minimalist tradition coupled with the designer’s contemporary vision.
