Bottega Veneta


Bottega Veneta has set a new standard for luxury since its birth in Vicenzain 1966. Inspired by Italian culture with a global outlook, the Italian fashion brand is defined by a distinctly refined attitude. Bottega Veneta uses noble materials to create considered pieces that become part of their owner’s lives. The house embraces a core philosophy of style, innovation and luxury, applied to a full offer for women, men and home.




Milan, Italy


Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro


Bottega Veneta is pronounced as “Boh-Tay-Gah Ven-Net-Tah,” you can find the correct way to pronounce it here.


Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro founded the Italian Luxury Brand. The brand initially focused on producing artisanal leather goods and developed a distinct leather weaving design known as "Intrecciato."

"When your own initials are enough" became the brand's historic slogan


Bottega Veneta opens its first store in the United States, in New York City.

Mid-1970s, the company started to make shoes.


Bottega Veneta experiences significant growth and becomes a symbol of understated luxury. Bottega Veneta launches its first ready-to-wear collection.


In 2001, German luxury group Gucci Group (now part of Kering) acquires Bottega Veneta. The brand undergoes a revitalization under the creative direction of Tomas Maier.

In 2005, the brand opens its largest store in the world, located in the Ginza district of Tokyo.


Bottega Veneta celebrates its 50th anniversary. The brand continues to emphasize its commitment to craftsmanship and timeless design.


Tomas Maier steps down as the creative director after a 17-year tenure. He is succeeded by the young Italian designer, Daniel Lee.


Under Daniel Lee's leadership, Bottega Veneta experiences a significant rejuvenation, gaining attention for its modern and edgy designs. The Pouch, a popular clutch bag, becomes one of the brand's iconic pieces.


Bottega Veneta created a buzz in the luxury industry by unexpectedly shutting down its social media accounts.

 Bottega Veneta and Lee announced Lee would be leaving his post as creative director in a "joint decision to end their collaboration."

Kering appointed Matthieu Blazy, former design director at Bottega Veneta, as the new creative director of the company.


Bottega Veneta shows returned to Milan and the brand has announced its intention to relocate its headquarters to Milan's Palazzo San Fedele before the end of 2023.
