Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier once said that “a priori impossible feats” was what he asked of his workshops. One look at this Matisse-inspired bag, limited to twenty pieces worldwide, is enough to see that he does hold them to the task. Handcrafted from four exotic snakeskins—Xenopeltis, Elaphe, Ayers and Mangrovia—this fashion heavyweight is light to tote but loaded with style with over fifty sections making up its slim shape. Plus, there is the versatility of the chain strap that turns it into a shoulder bag, top handle or clutch—what more can one ask for?
The shoulder bag in Vesuvio exotic skins is $4,610 and available at #B1-99 & B2-72A
