Bottega Veneta S.R.L.
4/6, Viale Della Siderurgia
Bottega Veneta is an Italian fashion label that specializes in leather items. The company was founded in 1956 by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro. Bettega Veneta's leather workers quickly invented their own signature way of weaving leather strands. Fans of understated yet high-quality leather items flocked to the label's boutiques. The brand was famous for not branding all of its products with splashy labels. It let its work stand on its own merits.
Andy Warhol was a huge fan of Bottega Veneta, which speaks to the artistic craftsmanship of the brand's products. The label re-branded itself in the 1990s in an effort to improve sagging sales. Once the sole inhabitant of its own unique fashion domain, Bottega Veneta dabbled in overt trend-hopping. This incarnation of the design house was short-lived. In 2001, the company was purchased by Gucci, and it was able to redirect its focus back to leather goods.
Bottega Veneta is not a typical fashion label. It only began producing runway couture in 2006. The label's focus lies in accessories like purses, shoes and jewellery. Its furniture is wildly popular among the very wealthy. In fact, the furniture is presented in displays similar to fashion runway shows on a regular basis. Its luggage is considered a status symbol among jet-setters.
Unsurprisingly, the clothing collections all feature a great deal of well-crafted leather items. Slim-fitting jackets and pants are staples of the Bottega Veneta oeuvre, as are long leather dresses. Bottega Veneta is perhaps the only label to successfully manufacture leather dresses that are not tacky. The summer collections usually pay homage to the label's famous purses with fringe details. The men's coats have military airs. The jewellery allows solitary stones to shine without unnecessary adornments. Bottega Veneta is a no-nonsense label for people who want high-quality leather goods.
