Introducing: Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2020 Collection
Under the helm of newly appointed creative director Daniel Lee, Bottega Veneta saw a huge comeback in 2019. Taking home more accolades than any other brand, the Italian luxury fashion house dominated the British Fashion Awards with four wins: Brand of the Year, British Designer of the Year, Womenswear Designer of the Year and Accessories Designer of the Year. A master at elegant simplicity, Lee introduced the Pouch Bag and Square-Toe Sandals into the brand’s highly anticipated line-up last year, and both items quickly became a favourite amongst the fashion elite and have been frequently spotted on the likes of Rihanna, Sofia Richie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and more. Bottega Veneta has now arrived at HBXWM for the first time with its Spring/Summer 2020 Collection. Our editorial spotlights the label’s signature intrecciato woven leather designs, including the sought-after Jodie Bag and Padded Sandals, alongside a modern range of ready-to-wear detailed with avant-garde twisting elements and cutouts. Scroll through to take a closer look at our selection and shop below.
Lee’s new oversized clutch shape for Bottega Veneta, known as The Pouch, has reigned supreme since it’s launch last year, and has now been reimagined in miniature versions named The Pouch 20 and Coin Purse. Featuring the familiar dumpling shape, the new silhouettes come with a slim leather strap and is available in varied classic and eye-catching hues. Similarly, The Shoulder Pouch reimagines one of the house’s iconic silhouettes with a molded strap that slides over the shoulder. Elsewhere, the Mini BV Jodie is handcrafted from a curved, seamless structure with knot detail on the handle, and is available in light orange and bright red.
On the footwear front, the Padded Sandals come with a statement-making square toe, soft-padded leather insole and stacked heel. Offered in burgundy and black, the footwear can be styled with the feminine array of SS20 apparel such as the Silk Ribbed Knit Dress, Textured Boucle Jumper, Padded Sleeveless Shirt and Long Pants. Rounding out the range are a selection of timeless small leather goods and jewelry like Weave Classic Card Holder, Woven Nappa Leather Bracelet, and Earrings.
