For 2012/2013, Bottega Veneta adds four sophisticated new styles to its coveted eyewear collection. The new styles—three sunglass models and an optical frame–exemplify the brand’s refined and timeless aesthetic. Bottega Veneta’s distinctive design motifs, including its signature intrecciato weave, are enhanced with such innovations as a closing-block hinge. Constructed from the finest quality materials and proudly “Made In Italy”, these new styles feature the superb craftsmanship, functionality, and versatility that defines the Bottega Veneta brand.
Feminine sophistication – These subtly seductive women’s sunglasses appeal with their soft lines and smooth, finely crafted profiles. The delicate butterfly shape is accented by refined details like intrecciato-motif metal cores on the temples and metal closing-block hinges inspired by the hardware on Bottega Veneta’s renowned handcrafted travel trunks. Gentle, transparent colors— champagne, brown, dark grey, and brown–underline the sense of weightlessness, as does the shaded intrecciato effect on the temples (mod. B.V. 219/S).
A new classic – Confident and timeless, these square-shaped men’s acetate sunglasses reflect Bottega Veneta’s classic flair. Distinctive details include a unique keyhole bridge that highlights the model’s harmonious design, a new closing-block hinge inspired by the brand’s iconic travel trunks, and metal cores bearing the intrecciato motif. Glass lenses, also available in polarized versions, provide superior optical clarity (mod. B.V. 220/S).
Unique lightness – Sporty-looking and supremely comfortable, these men’s sunglasses are made of titanium, a strong, ultra-lightweight, and hypoallergenic material. The frame’s slim, sleek profiles lend a contemporary sensibility to the retro-inspired square shape. The color palette features matte shades of bronze, ruthenium, brass, and silver. High-quality glass lenses, also available in polarized versions, provide superior optical clarity (mod. B.V. 221/S).
Refined glamour – A delicate intrecciato pattern and a timeless square shape characterize these chic women’s acetate optical frames. The details are signature Bottega Veneta: a closing-block hinge inspired by the hardware on the brand’s handcrafted travel trunks, and sleek rivets on the temple tips. The color palette includes rich, transparent brown and gray, as well as models in brown/champagne and burgundy/light green models that feature a shaded intrecciato pattern
