Bagaholicboy Profiles #30 – Bottega Veneta Knot

April 20, 2011

Ask me point blank what any of my top 5 favourite bags of all time are and one of them will always be the Bottega Veneta Knot. Why? For as long as I can remember (or since the blog started back in ’07), I’ve been enchanted with this stunning, yet simple piece, an icon in its own right and a joy to behold.

As far as I remember, the Knot has always been kept constant, refreshed in new colours and materials season after season but never mutilated. No adding of a strap here, or tassels a foot long there. It has always been consistently curated and treated like the elegant lady she is, with respect and dignity.

It isn’t exactly the biggest clutch out there, but that is the idea. To be small and discreet and holding the barest of essentials, while letting the person carrying it shine as she rightfully should. The Knot is not meant to be showstopper, instead a companion that can hold her own at the glitziest of galas.

And for those reasons alone, I love the Knot.

Still, loving one also means knowing its background and in the case of the Knot, seeing how it’s made is certainly a treat. Check out the short video from a series by Bottega Veneta titled Hand Of The Artisan, which includes a short clip on the making of the Knot.

And if you, like me, feel the same way about it, you can always check them out on Net-A-Porter, or at Bottega Veneta boutiques island wide, including ION Orchard and Takashimaya Department Store.

I guessed this Fashion Flakes is the most affordable Anya Hindmarch-related item we could ever get!
