Bottega Veneta - What we love about the Cassette bag
Bottega Veneta has reimagined its Cassette bag with a new leather technique called foulard, adding dimensionality and movement to the classic design. The designer, Matthieu Blazy, has embraced the concept of "craft in motion" for the brand, and the foulard Cassette perfectly showcases this vision.
The foulard technique involves using intrecciato leather with a pinch effect on paper calf leather, giving the bag an elegant shine that picks up and reflects light as it moves. This added volume also adds a sense of movement to the bag itself. Before the weaving process, the paper calf leather strips are ruched, enhancing the bag's unique character.
Each Cassette bag is unique due to the plisse finish on the exterior leather, and no two bags are exactly the same. Despite this, the bag remains the same size and shape as the original design, with a shoulder strap drop of 21.7 inches for over-the-shoulder or crossbody wear. The magnetic closure keeps the contents secure, and the inside features a bonded calfskin lining for a luxurious touch. The inside compartment is spacious enough to fit essential items such as a phone, wallet, keys, and even a snack.
The Cassette in Foulard Intreccio is available in a range of colors, from neutral, seasonless shades like porridge to bold, eye-catching hues like pool and sunburst. Each color is striking in its own way, and there is a shade to suit every taste and occasion.
Overall, the Bottega Veneta Cassette in Foulard Intreccio is a modern and elegant take on the brand's classic bag. It showcases Blazy's vision for the brand and the exceptional craftsmanship of Bottega Veneta's artisans.
