Matthieu Blazy is the new Bottega Veneta creative director, and for his Autumn/Winter 2022 debut, the designer opted for a collection that was based on the label’s fundamentals: leather. Whether on trousers, T-shirts or accessories, Bottega Veneta presented one of Matthieu Blazy’s first it-bags: the Kalimero.


When you buy an it-bag or best-selling bag, such as the Downtown by Yves Saint Laurent or the Lariat by Balenciaga, you want the brand to transmit its values and identity, as well as to live an unforgettable experience. That’s why Bottega Veneta’s Kalimero bag comes in various shapes and colour combinations such as “Barolo”, “Cob”, “Bone” and “Butter”.

Each features the house’s signature Intreccio calfskin fabric, only here with a quilted texture. The shoulder strap features a metal ring to create a sort of knotted pouch. A distinguishing factor that sets the bag apart from Bottega Veneta’s previous it bags is its price: $7,500.

You can pre-order the Bottega Veneta Kalimero Kalimero bag now on the Bottega Veneta Kalimero website.. Shipping starts on 31 October.
