Last night we attended the biggest event that Bottega Veneta had ever done in London: '’Bottega Veneta the Hand of the Artisan’’ event at London’s Chiswick House. The mansion was filled with Italian taste, from the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG tasting experience and Aperol spritz cocktail bar to the Bottega Veneta craftspeople who presented the brand’s famous intrecciato designs with strips of leather-like strands of fettuccine to their visitors.
There were various zones dedicated to all of the brand’s products, from leather products to fragrance and jewellery.
‘’We wanted to bring part of the Veneto region to London for a real celebration,” said Claus Dietrich Lars, chief executive of Bottega Veneta.
On the upper floor, the entire Parco Palladiano collection was on display and a genuinely talented craftswoman who showed us how the famous Bottega Veneta handbags are being made.
As I mentioned earlier, it was the biggest event that Bottega had ever done in London, with guests including Sabine Getty, Poppy Delevingne, Amber Le Bon, Lady Kitty Spencer, Arizona Muse, Marc Quinn, François-Henri Pinault and a host of Bottega clients.
