Hongkongers get a privileged peek inside the world of Bottega Veneta at Behind the Intrecciato, an installation at the Landmark Atrium until October 30 that lifts the lid on the brand’s unique history and craftsmanship. The travelling installation, launched at a cocktail event on October 21, marks the brand’s 50th anniversary, and allows visitors to explore Bottega Veneta’s immediately recognisable intrecciato motif through giant scale versions of three of its best-known pieces: the Veneta, the Cabat and the Knot. Big enough for visitors to physically enter, the structures provide a vivid demonstration of the outstanding craftsmanship, innovative yet timeless design, contemporary functionality and commitment to the highest-quality materials that define Bottega Veneta.
The installation, which previously visited Dubai and Shanghai, also marks 15 years since revered designer Tomas Maier took over as Bottega Veneta’s creative director; fittingly, the Cabat was the first bag Maier designed for the brand. As an added bonus, between October 22 and 24 visitors to the installation can see an Italian Bottega Veneta artisan demonstrate the workmanship behind the intrecciato pattern – a rare glimpse into the unique, traditional skills that make the brand so iconic.
