With its curved corners, magnetic frame closure, structured body and knotted hardware, Bottega Veneta’s iconic Knot gained immense popularity even without loud monograms or shiny logos. Over the years, it became a go-to favourite, carried as a chic clutch for evening parties and the like. And then it disappeared.
The good news? Matthieu Blazy has brought back the beloved icon in a refreshing new interpretation. Along with the classic, there’s also the Knot Minaudière On Strap with an extra intreccio strap for wearing over the shoulder.
The woven leather on the bag has an extra plisse-like detailing that gives it extra character. This acts a way of identifying newer versions of the Knot unveiled at Bottega Veneta’s Fall-Winter 2022 line-up.
You will notice that the knot isn’t placed on top this time. Instead, it appears on both sides as a securing mechanism for the 20cm (drop length) leather shoulder strap. Each bag measures 19 cm wide and 11.5 cm high, coming in Barolo (deep red), Bone (white) and Black foulard intreccio leather pairing with gold-tone brass hardware.
Retailing at SGD6400 each, the Knot Minaudière On Strap is now available at all local boutiques. Or visit Bottega Veneta Singapore’s online store to get your hands on the comeback Knot.
