Bottega Veneta's Plat Channels the 2000's Woven Frenzy

Sporting the brand’s signature Intreccio weave.

The footwear industry always references archives, but now it seems as if luxury fashion houses are breaking out of their own realms, as brands such as Bottega Veneta continues to deliver well-considered silhouettes such as the Plat.

Bottega Veneta’s Plat takes the brand’s iconic Intreccio weave and applies a black hue all over, before adding asymmetrical off-set leather tongues that are adorned with thin rope laces on top à la Nike’s Air Woven from 2000. However, unlike the retro Nike silhouette, Bottega Veneta naturally crafts these in a far more luxurious manner, using metallic lurex for the weave alongside webbing for the heel tab and smooth black rubber for the low-profile sole unit.

The pair comes under Daniel Lee‘s body of work — Matthieu Blazy has only just debuted his first collection after all. Despite this, the pair could promise a bright and intriguing future for Bottega Veneta’s line of footwear, particularly if the label continues to draw inspiration from other obscure sneakers of the past.

Take a look at the Bottega Veneta Plat above, and pick up the pair from HBX now for $1,148 USD. Various other colors are also available at Bottega Veneta boutiques.
