Bottega Veneta, when your own initials are enough


Personalisation of luxury products has gained popularity in recent years, following the resurgence of logos. People are more open than ever to wearing pieces branded with their own initials, and Bottega Veneta is making personalising your bag that much easier with the introduction of its newest service.

When your own initials are enough.

Celebrating the brand’s motto, ‘When your own initials are enough’, the new personalisation program was debuted on the brand’s S/S’18 runway and is available on both men’s and women’s piece.

Tote and duffle striped bags for men in canvas, suede and ostrich patterns are designed to include monogrammed initials for two new women’s bags – the Intrecciato Palio (a vivid tri-color design crafted from eight different types of Nappa leather) and the BV73 (a bag based on an original model from 1973). Plus, both men and women will be able to personalise their own Intrecciato style across handbags, backpacks, duffles, wallets and phone cases.

As for how long the pieces will take? It all depends on which option you choose, but those featuring embossing or stamping will be finished after a few days, or just 24 hours in some cases. Those pieces that require stitching will take longer however as this can only be done by Bottega Veneta artisans.

Forget putting a ring on it, this year it’s all about putting your name on it.
