The brand name Bottega Veneta rings a bell with anyone who hears it – Not just because everyone knows the brand, but because the name is like music to their ears. “Bottega Veneta” literally means “Venetian Workshop” in Italian. And these words describe the traditional Italian company pretty well. The legendary leather items, for which the company is celebrated worldwide, are not made in large, automated factories, but painstakingly by hand in Montebello Vicentino. There is also the Scuola dei Maestri Pellettieri di Bottega Veneta, the company’s own school for employee training, as well as the archives and museum of Bottega Veneta, on the company premises.
It’s all about understatement in the countryside, approx. 200 km from the hustle and bustle of Milan. Although the company could place its prestigious name on all of its products, Bottega Veneta deliberately does not use omnipresent branding – convincing customers at the product level instead. The design also speaks for itself. Anyone who sees the typical “intrecciato” weave pattern usually knows where the perfectly processed leather is from. Despite the current trend for branding, this quality makes a brand logo on the leather goods superfluous. When an attempt was made to add the BV logo to handbags, sales actually declined.
The brand’s hard-earned trust has given it enough momentum to leave the safe haven of leather items and explore new waters. In addition to bags, belts, shoes and other leather goods made with Italian craftsmanship, the brand has created classic women’s and men’s fashion including scarves and jewellery. Fragrances, luggage, furniture and home accessories followed. The design of the Bottega Veneta sunglasses is particularly beautiful. They are impressive in that they stand out from conventional designs.
This is especially clear with the Bottega Veneta BV1005S, which meets our time head on like a straight right from Klitschko with its clear frame. Nobody will overlook your angular oversize acetate frames. And if you just catch them out of the corner of your eye, you will at least notice the golden Bottega Veneta emblem.
While the gold emblem in the form of two stripes has become the hallmark of the Italian eyewear for many plastic models, the metal glasses have the full brand name engraved on them. One example of this is the Bottega Veneta aviator glasses, which are great for men and women. Their teardrop-shaped lenses allow a small break in symmetry on the inside and are striking because of the absence of the frame in that area.
The Bottega Veneta BV1012S is another aviator design reinvented by the creative Italians. These aviator sunglasses round out any look, despite their corners and edges. With their irregular frame, they redefine a classic style without being too far out. The result is aviator sunglasses 2.0, which are especially striking because of their dominant double bridge. The double lines on the golden temples are reminiscent of the emblem mentioned above.
If you like these Bottega Veneta sunglasses or have even fallen in love with these little works of art, order a pair, try them on and convince yourself with the unique Bottega Veneta quality.
