Bottega Veneta

Fashion Designer

Founded in Italy in 1966, the luxury brand Bottega Veneta gained popularity in the 1970s and 80s for its handwoven leather bags, featuring the house's signature intrecciato leather-weaving technique.

The British trio of designer Giles Deacon, accessories designer Stuart Vevers, and stylist Katie Grand joined the company in 2000, bringing a decidedly modern and experimental edge to the label. Upon Bottega Veneta's purchase by the Gucci Group in 2001, German-born designer Tomas Maier became Bottega Veneta's creative director developing a louche, sophisticated and luxurious personality for the brand. In 2018 the brand announced the appointment of British designer Daniel Lee as creative director.
