I went to the Bottega Veneta party toasting 30 years of the Knot bag last week and had the best time (it’s hard not to have fun when there is flowing champagne, good food and gorgeous bags! But I would’ve had even more fun had I been at the LA dinner with Tomas Maier and Julie Gilhart on the patio of Barneys Greengrass the night before– hint hint, Marisa — okay fine, I promise I won’t smother him with kisses!). There were incredible Knot bags from the Bottega archives on display along with current pieces for sale. Not only were they amazing to see, I learned so much about the history of this elegant clutch. When it was first introduced, the knot was actually a rectangular crystal clasp (that is how you can distinguish vintage knot clutches from current ones) but the silhouette has always been the same chic and simple style. More after the jump!
I also got a sneak peak at the next season; for fall, the Knot clutch is elongated and embellished with dazzling beads and crystals, absolutely fabulous! Tomas Maier is a genius, he knows how to reinvent and update Bottega bags without losing its signature flavor. Knot bags vary in price depending on the leather and details. There is an origami one that I found exquisite– there is something about Eastern influence on a very Western style bag that is extraordinary. Call Jasenka at Bottega Veneta boutique to inquire about getting a Knot bag that fits your personality and taste! 214-265-0136
