More statement jewellery than bag, the Bottega Veneta yellow gold Knot is the only clutch to covet this festive season.
One of Bottega Veneta’s signatures, the box minaudière was given a fresh look in 2001, when Tomas Maier took the design reins and updated it with a distinctive knot closure. The Knot clutch was an immediate hit, and versions of it have appeared in every Bottega Veneta collection since. Maier raised the stakes for Autumn/Winter ’13, weaving together – in traditional Bottega fashion – 18-karat gold strips for maximum opulence. With a price that starts at almost RM380,000, the clutch can be luxed up even more with a custom diamond clasp. “It’s the perfect hybrid between fine jewellery and bags in a collection that’s mostly about contradiction,” he says. Priced at RM378,620. Bottega Veneta, 2.30, Pavilion KL. Tel: 03-2143 7880.
