Bottega Veneta S.R.L

Bottega Veneta was launched as a family business of luxury leather accessories in Venice back in 1966. Current designer Tomas Maier is launching a capsule collection of ready-to-wear for fall 2005.

The Look, at $3,000 a pop for a bag, expect to see classic clean lines, the softest leathers, and a classic palette rather than trend-driven designs. Bottega is most known for its hand-woven leather bags, belts, and shoes. Maiers ready-to-wear womens line posses the same timeless, ultra-luxurious look. German-born Tomas Maier took the helm in 2001 and revived the flagging brand by injecting a more modern feel and reworking the traditional woven leather signature.

The company merged with Gucci Group in July 2001.
