“In essence, Bottega Veneta is pragmatic because it is a leather goods company. Because it specialises in bags, it is about movement, about going somewhere. There is fundamentally an idea of craft in motion as well as style over fashion – that is part of its quiet power.” — Matthieu Blazy

For his debut Winter ‘22 collection, creative director Matthieu Blazy explores a story of clothing and character. It is a narrative that involves the notion of craft in motion, bringing a sense of subversion to tradition with movement, sensuality and life. Central to this idea, opening the show was Kalimero, the bucket bag slung over the shoulder. Featuring a new approach to the intreccio, Kalimero is made entirely by hand without being sewn, only woven.
