Look around and you’ll notice Bottega Veneta slung on the shoulders of every it-girl and draped across every celebrity on the red carpet. It’s true, newly-appointed creative director Matthieu Blazy knows how to make a cult item. But as the brand continues to stray from the norms of social media and by way of secret runways, it feels more exclusive, more luxurious than ever. Bottega Veneta will return to Milan Fashion Week with a backdrop designed by Gaetano Pesce on September 24 at 8pm CEST (or bright and early at 4am AEST on September 25) for a Summer 2023 showcase. Stay tuned for a post-show report from our editors.
