The Bag: BOT­TEGA KNOT

Cosmopolitan (India) - - FASHION -

Year: 1980. Although the rounded clutch ex­isted since 1980, it was only when To­mas Maier joined Bot­tega Veneta in 2001 and re­alised the po­ten­tial of the com­pact clutch, that the bag re­ally took off. He redesigned the clo­sure of the clutch with a clasp that re­sem­bled a knot, thereby giv­ing it its name. Ev­ery sea­son has a new ver­sion of the Knot clutch, with in­spi­ra­tions rang­ing from Origami to Art Deco. The com­pany never kept an ar­chive of the box clutch be­fore To­mas’ time, so to pre­serve the his­tory of the bag, the team went on what felt like a trea­sure hunt to vin­tage shops and col­lec­tors, to find the orig­i­nal knots from the eras gone by.
