Bottega Veneta Singapore: The Glamorous Fashion Brand for Premium Leather Collection

Low-key Extravagance of Bottega Veneta from Italy

Like Harry Winston once said, “People will stare. Make it worth their while”. Bottega Veneta exudes an everlasting low-key Italian extravagance. Bottega Veneta was born between Venice and Verona, in a place called Vicenza. An Italian fashion house founded by a duo, Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro in 1966. The brand is well-known for producing leather luxury goods with the highest and innovative modes of craftsmanship, using the finest materials onto innovative yet understated design styles that have made Bottega Veneta emerge as one of the world’s best luxury brands.

The company, named Bottega Veneta, means “Venetian workshop” began making artisanal leather goods using their signature weaving technique called “intrecciato”, which became its signature today. Since the brand’s establishment, Bottega Veneta has introduced exciting additions to its collection. This includes:

In 2000, the company was acquired by Kering, formerly known as Gucci Group and a new creative director, Tomas Maier was appointed. He then presented his first collection, the Spring/Summer 2002 and it gained an instant response from the fashion critics soon thereafter. Under the lead of Tomas Maier as the Creative Designer of Bottega Veneta, the brand is definitely on par with understated luxury brands that are of high-end quality. Maier’s creative take on the classic bags with special materials like a tinted lizard or oxidized leather has garnered rave reviews from fashion critics. Steering the label into the right course with a philosophy of individuality and confidence, Bottega Veneta will create new waves of fashion staying true to its motto of “when your own initials are enough”.

Today, Bottega Veneta has its own boutiques all around the world, in continents such as Europe, Australia, Asia, North and South America. The construction of the boutiques reflects the brand’s unique heritage and unmatched quality too and allows its customers to shop in complete luxury, comfort and privacy. Under the direction of Daniel Lee, creativity, aesthetic, individuality, and unrivalled quality lie at the heart of its designs.

Bottega Venata’s Signature Intrecciato Woven Napa Leather Bags

Bottega Veneta’s signature weaving technique used in its products, called the Intrecciato technique, distinguishes its handbag line as compared to any other brand. The origins of this technique apparently can be traced back to the 1960s, whereby the technique was first created and used. Originally, when Bottega Veneta began producing ready-to-wear clothing, the sewing machines in the workshops were made to work with cloth and not leather.

So, Bottega Veneta artisans had to use super-fine leather to get under the needle, which required extra patience, precision and time as it wasn’t an easy task to perform. The leather they used is woven into the “Intrecciato” pattern, which became the brand’s signature today. The pattern is used extensively in most Bottega Veneta categories. The “Intrecciato” motif is now the brand’s most iconic design that is desired by many fashionistas globally.

Among all Bottega Veneta products, Bottega Veneta’s Intrecciato exclusive leather bags are considered as one of its best-selling collection items, which places the brand at the same level as other luxury brands in the industry.

We recommend the most prominent Bottega Veneta Eau De Parfum Knot. Expect to get a modern and mysterious aura around it with hints of honey white florals and lavender.

Inspired by Bottega Veneta Knot clutches, perfumer Daniela Andrier formulated the olfactory Gordian Knot that makes up the base of this amazing perfume. Andrier took four exquisitely constructed accords and brought them together in an orange blossom focused creation. Bottega Veneta Knot has a 10-12 hour longevity rate with an average sillage.

Aside from crafting perfumes for women, Bottega Veneta has a refreshing scent Pour Homme (literally means ‘for men’). Concocted with top notes like Calabrian bergamot, Siberian pine, and the Balkans’ juniper; heart notes such as Jamaican pepper, Canadian fir resins and Mediterranean clary sage; with the base notes of Andalusian labdanum, leather, and Indonesian patchouli. Subtly musky, it’s a scent that doesn’t come quite as overpowering nor does it fade fast throughout the day. The scent of Pour Homme can certainly remind you of the Italian countryside in the summer.

Opening up the wallet, check for the stamped logo “Bottega Veneta” with “Made in Italy” below it. Inside one of the slots should be seen with a white label tag with the brand name as well as “Made in Italy” sewn onto the material.
