Owning a Bottega Veneta original just became a bit more affordable with the introduction of its new Intrecciolusion and Intrecciomirage lines.
The Intrecciolusion line’s accessories are crafted from twill printed with a pattern which mimics Bottega Veneta’s signature Intrecciato finish.
The Intrecciomirage line acts as a bridge between the Intrecciolusion and Intrecciato ranges. Its bags are made from a thinner nappa leather than the Intrecciato purses. Rather than the actual weave as we see in the high priced line, it features engraving which mimics the iconic Bottega Veneta surface.
Both new collections feature a range of accessories, from wallets to large everyday totes and shoulder bags, in a diverse selection of colors.
The choice of materials and clever production methods sees the new Bottega Veneta collections priced at far less than its signature range. You can snap up an Intrecciolusion tote for just $490, and score a Intrecciomirage cross-body for $980. I still wouldn’t call them cheap bags, but they’re a lot more attainable than the four-figured Intrecciato purses.
Girls on a budget will likely embrace this chance to own a piece of Bottega Veneta. But I wonder whether offering more affordable bags will put a dent in the high-end fashion house’s reputation. We don’t see Hermes providing cut-price options after all. What’s your take?
The new Intrecciomirage and Intrecciolusion collections are available now through Bottega Veneta stores.
