BOTTEGA VENETA KNOT
Although Bottega Veneta has abstained from logos from the outset, occasionally incorporating discreetly engraved BV initials on bags and garments, one of its now most famous and unmistakable symbols emerged in the '90s: the Bottega Veneta Knot.
The Bottega Veneta Knot is a symbol of golden hardware that, as its name suggests, represents a knot formed by two intertwined cords. This house symbol has been translated into a dozen pieces, ranging from bags to shoes and even perfumes at one point.
Bottega Veneta's Symbolism
The visual symbols and codes of the Bottega Veneta house are rooted in its 'if you know, you know' philosophy. In other words, the Venetian brand has relied from the start on its minimalist aesthetic and the legendary quality of its products.
Thus, the famous Bottega Veneta Knot, the distinctive closure of intertwined cords, has transcended being just a bag closure to becoming part of buttons, jackets, jewelry, etc. Since its introduction in the 1990s, the knot has become an icon of the brand with numerous applications in various designs.
In the realm of high fashion, the Bottega Veneta Knot has become a distinctive hallmark of elegance and sophistication. Bottega Veneta knot bags with the famous closure, such as the Knot minaudiere or the Andiamo bag, are coveted for their craftsmanship and traditionally Bottega design. The Knot motif has been skillfully incorporated into the tailoring of clothing pieces, adding a luxurious detail to dresses, blouses, and jackets.
The versatility of the Knot symbol even became the face and name of a discontinued perfume from the brand. Former creative director Tomas Maier celebrated the symbol at the time, seeing in the knot not a limitation but an infinite range of possibilities.
Its versatility is reflected in its ability to be incorporated into a variety of brand pieces, always taking on a leading role rather than being a mere detail on the garment. Its use spans from the most classic and timeless models of the house to the most avant-garde pieces.
