Founded in 1966 by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro, the brand represents the simple and timeless stance of Italian elegance. In the 1970s the company started advertising with the slogan “When your initials are enough”. In the early 1980s, Bottega Veneta became an international jet set favorite with clients such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and empress Farah Pahlavi. Andy Warhol made a short film for the company in 1980. Zengiaro and Taddei retired from the company in the 1990s.
In the 1980s, the company’s wealth began to decline. In February 2001, the struggling company was bought by the Gucci Group for $ 156 million. Tom Ford, then Creative Director of Gucci Group, hired Tomas Maier as the Creative Director of Bottega Veneta in June of that year. Tomas Maier began to revert the brand to its original identity. The brand’s products also emphasized intrecciato weaving and returned the company’s focus to craft production.
The brand, which started to rise rapidly in the first quarter of 2019, became the favorite of bloggers in 2020. Especially, we started to see the brand’s bags and shoes in fashion bloggers on Instagram. Let’s examine the legendary products of the brand in 2020 together.
