Drift off to the dreamland conjured exclusively by the remarkable Italian heritage label Bottega Veneta, not only to celebrate its 50th anniversary but also to honour the 15 years of Tomas Maier as a Creative director. Inspired by an archival design and handcrafted to perfection at an atelier in Montebello Vicentino, the Bottega Veneta City Knot bag was brought as a part of the brand’s Spring 17 collection as a part of limited edition bags.
Symbolic twist-lock in the shape of an intrecciato knot? Yep, get ready to welcome this twenty-first century-meets-timeless design featuring the world’s greatest luxury signatures- the Knot style that certainly nods to the house’s ancient heritage. As per the name, this new compact shoulder bag has the same signature closure that was one’s presented in the iconic Knot clutch designed to be the grace of evening occasions.
Let’s face it; the one thing that makes all heads turn in surprise is the knot closure. Imagine a contemporary boxy shape made in buttery smooth and rich leather gets a bit of the edge via buckle detailing along with the hand engraved metal ware. Flawlessly created, this Bottega Veneta City Knot bag is a bold one-off design, which supports contrasting hand-painted edges.
Is there something to support its versatile styling? To answer this question for practicality seekers, yes of course there is! In this bag we have a polished adjustable chain-trimmed strap, which can be further adjusted to carry it over the shoulder or in hand. You can either wear it single or double it up to be held by hand.
We’ve had our fair share of experience regarding choosing a bag and now we have to face the varieties in this Bottega Vaneta City bag too, not that we are complaining. Here, we are generously showered with gracefully embossed tiny butterflies motif- a trademark of Bottega Veneta, smooth French calf leather, leopard print calf hair, premium French calf with smooth finish and what not! Apart from the leather it has shades like cement, steel, moss, cloud-grey, etc.
Let’s take a quick ride through its interior, shall we? This ever-stunning ever-functional City Knot opens to reveal three compartments with soft suede lining. Getting top marks in the organizational department, the compact shape is divided into 3 internal and fitted with a flat pocket. These are more than enough to put in all your day-to-day belongings that you need in this shoulder bag. Moreover, there’s an accordion-gusset style that provides you much more space.
