Loving Recently: The Bottega Veneta City Knot Bags

Knot just your ordinary bag, the City Knot stole my heart

A few months ago, I stopped by to visit our friends at Bottega Veneta and preview the new collection. I was immediately drawn to one bag in particular: The City Knot. The City Knot is part of Bottega Veneta‘s Summer 2017 collection, which culminates the brand’s 50th Anniversary year. I was truly smitten, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the pretty little thing!

There are so many things I love about this bag, but the one thing that draws my attention immediately is the shoulder bag’s knot closure. It is distinctly Bottega, and the Knot is one of the luxury accessory world’s great signatures. Also, the bag’s leather is smooth and luxurious, and the buckle detailing adds a bit of edge. I truly love this bag!

The design features an accordion-like gusset with three interior compartments, giving it an A+ in my book when it comes to functionality and organization. The strap can be worn single over the shoulder or doubled to be held by hand. Overall dimensions are 9.4″ x 3.5″ x 6.1″. The City Knot in Cement Calf retails for $4,000 and the City Knot in Embossed Calvados Goat retails for $4,150. Shop Bottega Veneta via Net-a-Porter and Neiman Marcus.

The primary Tank was offered on twelve November 1919 – Louis Cartier wished to watch for peace to return following the Wonderful War ahead of placing his new watch on sale. Nevertheless, the year in advance of, he had offered a prototype of the Tank to Basic Pershing, commander with the American expeditionary force in Europe. Given that that time, legions of celebrities happen to be photographed having a Tank on their wrist. It was likely one among the initial wristwatches to be witnessed about the silver screen; in 1926, Rudolph Valentino wore his throughout the filming of “Son in the Sheik”, plus the anachronistic photos became famous. You’ll find also iconic snaps of Clark Gable, Mohamed Ali, Ingrid Bergman, Simone Signoret, Yves Montand, Catherine Deneuve, Andy Warhol and Princess Diana, all sporting Tanks.
