Top Five Bottega Veneta bags 

It takes only a good taste to spot a Bottega Veneta handbag. Founded in 1966, the Italian luxury brand earned instant recognition for its distinctive leather weave design, called intrecciato. Many of the brand’s pieces like the Box Knot Clutch, the Veneta Hobo, and the Cabat Tote still feature this distinctive pattern.

While there are brands identified by logos, there are those pinpointed for their craft. Bottega Veneta’s intrecciato motif falls into the latter as one of the most recognizable signatures of a fashion house.

Here, we have rounded 10 of the most celebrated Bottega Veneta bag styles narrating the evolution of the Italian fashion brand.


The classic BV73 bag was created in 1973; it represents Bottega Veneta’s initials. The rectangular-shaped bag has been revived for the brand’s new collections, recalling its original style from the 1970s style archives, with the marble-effect exterior adding a modern touch. It has top handles and detachable strap.

Crafted from brushed calfskin, with iconic intrecciato details in tonal ayers leather. Lined in plush suede and fitted with an internal zip pocket.


The coveted Knot has been an icon and cult bag since its debut in 1978. Today, there are over 300 versions in a range of colourways and fabrics, including even styles laced with diamonds. Engraved in signature intrecciato, the bag has become synonymous with Bottega Veneta, while its knot clasp pays tribute to the brand’s leather craft heritage.

Lauren 1980

Named after actress and model Lauren Hutton, the bag was originally designed for her to carry for American Gigolo, a movie released in 1980. The timeless clutch was revived in September 2016 during Bottega Veneta’s 50th anniversary dual celebration, when Hutton walked down the runway carrying the iconic bag once again.

A new iteration of Lauren 1980 has been presented in Bottega Veneta’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, introducing the same design and material as the original version. The clutch is exclusively available in the Gigolo Red colour featuring a special engraved tag ‘The Lauren 1980’. It is also available in platinum, mustard colour as well.


Created to embody the elegancy and luxury which Bottega Veneta stands for, the bag is exclusively made for the sophisticated women. This timely and truly elegant bag is named after the Italian square that acts as the heart of a town.

Its design allows it to be an everyday bag that can both be casual or dressy, came in three different sizes: mini, small, and medium. Bottega Veneta’s Piazza can be best described as a classic top-handle bag with an elegant, modern twist.


It is called the bag of 2019. The bag is one of the first releases by Bottega Veneta’s new creative director Daniel Lee, the young British designer who takes the place vacated by Tomas Maier, who led the empire for 17 years. It is a clutch bag for special occasions. It expresses the artisan tradition of the Italian fashion house in a modern oversized design with long-closing shots. It is designed in different and elegant shades, in brown, camel, light blue, red, smooth leather or woven leather.
