The avantgarde charm of Bottega Veneta's Cassette bag The ultimate dream of every fashionistas, from Chiara Ferragni to Jacob Elordi

Needless to say, Bottega Veneta is the Maison that has created some of the most iconic it-bags in the last decade. The most standout and beloved is the Cassette bag. With its characteristic softly geometric shape and matelassé effect, obtained thanks to a unique game of interweaving, it has become the object of desire for common people, influencers and stars who, since Daniel Lee proposed it for the first time along with other padded accessories in the Fall 2019 collection, continue to buy it, photograph it and wear it.

In recent seasons, always declined in new shades and with small different variations (the most recent model features a golden chain instead of the classic leather shoulder strap), it has invaded our Instagram feeds, starring in still life and selfies, but also many streetstyle shots that always show us a new way to incorporate it into our daily looks and how easily it adapts to different outfits and styles. Even the stars can no longer do without it. Victoria Beckham has it in the typical Bottega green, Hailey Bieber prefers black, but sometimes alternates with the green model with golden chain, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley often wears the white one, while Jacob Elordi was spotted in the front row of the first Bottega Veneta show with Matthieu Blazy as creative director with a dark brown Cassette on his shoulder.    

What makes this bag so special? The secret is its mix of versatility, practicality, elegance, coolness and luxury. Created as a fashion adaptation of the 1970s luxury car interiors, it is the result of the skillful craftsmanship of Maison's laboratories, which achieve the characteristic look of the Padded Cassette bag by hand weaving padded Paper Calf webbing that is then welded together using a specific high-frequency heat-sealing technique.

Bottega Veneta's Cassette bag is available in all sizes, variants, and colors at Bottega Veneta boutiques and e-shop, as well as in select retail stores.
