There’s a new Andiamo in town, surely signalling Bottega Veneta’s intention to nudge it towards house classic status, along with favourites like the Cassette, Jodie and Sardine. You’ve already seen the OG design in three sizes. But now it’s time to feast your eyes on the east-west version simply referred to as the Small Andiamo.
Wider but shorter at 29 cm by 18 cm, this horizontal style is equal parts fun and functional. Choose from two colours: firstly in White, while the second is Fondant, a slightly brownish hue. Both colours feature a tone-on-tone look right down to the handles, strap and ring loop detailing. The only exception is the signature knot detail in shiny gold-tone brass.
The bag’s interior is segmented into two open compartments, with an extra zip pocket within providing extra security. This horizontal format isn’t as deep as its predecessors’, so all your essentials stay easily within view when open.
Retailing at SGD6050, the Small Andiamo is one of the new Pre-Fall 2023 arrivals, and you’ll find it under the women’s collection at Bottega Veneta. However, this doesn’t mean the boys don’t qualify. All you have to do is try it on to see if it works for you, with the fit, size and colour best appreciated in person at Bottega Veneta boutiques in Singapore.
