Introducing the Bottega Veneta 2017 Runway Bag Collection. The brand presented sophisticated and elegant handbags this season. Bottega Veneta’s classic designs were featured in the collection like the Monaco, Cabat, Olimpia, Brera and Knot bags.
The Knot Bags comes in crocodile with silver intrecciato details. A variety of shoulder bags were presented this season including flap bags with knotted shoulder strap and mini zipped bags in Ayers. Another new design is the mini flap bags attached together turning it into one chic bag.
Bottega Veneta’s 2017 Runway Bag Collection didn’t fail to disappoint. Right at the beginning, it gave us the WOW factor that we’ve all been expecting from this Italian luxury power house. The myriad of bags paraded during the runway is such a feast to our eyes and music to our ears, which was something we always look forward to. The brand presented several sophisticated, posh and refined handbags this season.
There was a great variety from different types of bags such as flap bags, mini zipped bags, top handle bags, totes, shoulder bags, and clutch bags; the materials used from crocodile skin, leather and others; and colors from bright shocking red, blue, black, green, violet, pink, and brown among others. These are two of the bags from the collection that has caught us our attention. This particularly white shoulder bag is embodying “simplicity at its finest.” Its off white color and minimalistic design is perfect for casual wear.
This black Crocodile bag on the other hand is nothing but pure luxury in all its angles. One will definitely feel elegant upon clutching and holding on to this bag.
Introducing the Bottega Veneta 2017 Bag Collection. The collection features a variety of shoulder bags including those that were presented during the runway show. These includes the double micro shoulder bags and compact shoulder bags with pockets. The brand’s iconic Intrecciato leather comes with nappa leather, karung and snakeskin this season. A mix of colors such as black, blue, beige, gray and pink are seen in the brand’s latest handbags.
It’s amazing how so few designers realize the abject appreciation they’ll be given for allowing women a glimpse of simple, reserved, perfectly cut tailoring. From the moment Jamie Bochert opened the Bottega Veneta show wearing a long black cashmere coat, black turtleneck, slim, very slightly flared pants, and a long and skinny knitted scarf wound around her neck, Tomas Maier should have felt the audience love radiating all the way backstage. Anyway: With this season, he has come to his senses, dispensed with theme (who needs it?) and applied himself the one thing which is so frustratingly elusive to find in today’s hotchpotch fancied-up fashion: a method for looking grown-up, and proud of it.
In the febrile celebrity model–spotting atmosphere of the shows in Milan, it was notable that this time, it was Brochart and the dignified Julia Nobis (dressed in a pale beige cashmere pantsuit) who magnetized envious eyes. Kendall Jenner was there on the runway later, too, wearing a purple knit dress that made her look considerably older than her years. But essentially, this is a collection which separates the women from the girls. You suddenly realized that you must aspire to be old enough to wear these clothes—and how many collections can make a woman feel positively relaxed and smug about that?
Beginning in September, Bottega Veneta will make some big changes to its presentation structure. Designer Tomas Maier will integrate the brand’s men’s and womenswear shows for its spring/summer 2017 presentation during Milan Fashion Week.
“2017 marks an important year for Bottega Veneta and it deserves a proper celebration in view of [the brand’s] further development,” chief executive Carlo Alberto Beratta told Business of Fashion.
“Showing women and men together is quite an organic move for us. Tomas Maier’s vision is of Bottega Veneta as a lifestyle brand, built on both genders, and it has been like this for the last 15 years of his creative direction,” Beratta said. “He actually already included some women’s looks in the Autumn/Winter 2017 men’s show in January.”
The combined show will celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary, as well as 15 years under the creative direction of Maier. It’s still unknown whether Bottega Veneta will take this approach beyond this season.
“I believe this approach may be continued, moving forward into 2017 as a natural evolution,” Beratta said. “Our aim is always to decide in accordance with the brand’s philosophy in any step we take, so the factors in making this decision will be what makes more sense for the brand itself. We are not in a rush, we would rather pursue an organic evolution.”
In related news, Burberry revealed plans back in February to show only two presentations annually. In addition to also combining menswear and womenswear shows, the British label will make its upcoming biannual collections “seasonless,” and eveything will also be available to buy immediately after the shows.
The esteemed British label will no longer show two annual menswear ranges on the London Collections: Men runway — which were previously staged in January and June. The brand still plans to work with LCM and is finding other ways to participate.
The schedule shift is an effort to focus on consumers and retail availability, as opposed to just the runway show event.
While these versions have been iterated many a time and oft during prior seasons, some designers went out-and-out innovational in this category this time around bringing forth family ties – Siamese twin purple and red bags at Bottega Veneta and a mother + daughter package spotted at DSquared2.
