Bottega Veneta’s ‘Cassette’ style continues to headline our edit of this season’s most desirable bags. Crafted in Italy using padded strips of leather to create a puffy silhouette, it unfastens to reveal a spacious interior with a zipped pocket. The chunky chain strap is made through a seven-step mechanical process that ensures it reaches the perfect length and is galvanized for a shiny finish – it’s covered with a protective layer, too.
Bottega Veneta was established in 1966 in Vicenza, Italy by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro. Crafting artisanal leather goods, the brand developed a distinctive leather weaving design, the Intrecciato, which instantly became Bottega Veneta’s iconic look “When your own initials are enough” became the brand’s historic slogan because the crafted Intrecciato made Bottega Veneta’s products immediately recognizable, and its logo only appeared discreetly on the inside of its products.
In 1972, Bottega Veneta opened its first store in the USA, in New York City. In the mid-1970s, the company started to make shoes.
Renzo Zengiaro left the company at the end of the 1970s. Soon after, Michele Taddei handed over the company to his ex-wife Laura Braggion, who headed the company with her second husband Vittorio Moltedo from then on. She moved to New York to develop the company and became a member of the local jetset. In 1980, the actress Lauren Hutton carried a Bottega Veneta Intrecciato bag in the movie American Gigolo. In 1985, Andy Warhol made the short film Bottega Veneta Industrial Videotape.
During the 1990s, Bottega Veneta launched its first ready-to-wear collection.
