Matthieu Blazy‘s Bottega Veneta is one fixated on perfected minimalism, refinement, and anti-branding. Instead, it puts the focus on fabrication, execution and House signatures, and its new Andiamo bag is the perfect embodiment of this ethos.
First seen on the Summer 2023 runway, Bottega Veneta’s Andiamo follows on from the House’s $10,500 USD Double Kalimero bucket bag that broke the internet — as many a Bottega bag has done, à la the Cassette.
Its name translates from Italian to “Let’s go” in English, and with that in mind, the Andiamo is a bag that’s designed to be used as an everyday essential. Think along the same lines of the Birkin; this piece is designed to be used, loved, and become a staple part of your identity.
Ensuring it can keep up with daily tasks and the wear that will follow, the Andiamo is made using Bottega Veneta’s finest leather and crafted in its signature Intrecciato weave. This is the single identifier that the brand relies on, while a new gold-toned metal knot on the front fastener is another touch Bottega Veneta will be using to signal that this bag is one of its own.
Shades of “Ice Cream,” “Fondant,” “Travertine,” “White,” “Glacier,” “Inkwell,” and “Barolo” ensure that there’s a colorway for everyone and every occasion, while adjustable straps make the piece adaptable, allowing you to carry it like a clutch, wear it across the body, or casually on the shoulder.
Sizes range from small to medium and large, and subsequently, prices range from $4,100 USD to $4,900 USD and $7,900 USD respectively. Take a closer look at the new House essential above, and purchase yours online or in Bottega Veneta’s boutiques now.
