Bottega Veneta has created a Russian inspired limited edition clutch to be sold at its Tretjakovskiy Proezd store in Moscow.
The appropriately named Moscow clutch will be made from vivid green intrecciato Ayers snakeskin. The lush design is finished off with an antique gold-finished brass turnlock closure inlaid with malachite to match the snake. The woven exotic delightfully contrasts with the deep purple suede lined interior. A sterling silver plate inside each purse will be inscribed with the edition number and boutique name.
The design calls to mind the malachite furniture and luxury interiors of Imperial Russia. Yet Bottega Veneta gives these influences a contemporary makeover.
"In the four and a half years since we opened our first store in Russia, we have gained many engaged and loyal customers," explained creative director Tomas Maier. "We wanted to make a bag especially for them. It is one of the pleasures of Bottega Veneta’s mode of production that we can design and produce a small number of very special handbags to celebrate a particular place or occasion. The Moscow clutch is such a bag."
Just 30 of the Moscow clutches will be made, so Russian fashionistas should probably pre-order theirs at the Moscow store ahead of the release later this month.
