Anyone worth their luxury handbags would recognise Bottega Veneta’s Intrecciato weave in a heartbeat. This season, fans of the classic design can rejoice – the Italian luxury goods house has extended the iconic motif to an extensive range of eyewear that includes sunglasses and prescription glasses.
Set to arrive in three distinct collections, the eyewear range is an extension of Tomas Maier’s polished, unfussy ready-to-wear collection for fall. The Light Intrecciato Profile sees the Intrecciato detail subtly applied to both unisex and feminine frame shapes, finished with tonal or contrasting color nuances and two iconic rivets on the temples. The Intrecciato Eyes range is the boldest iteration within the series, defined by an eyebrow metal insert with the engraved motif that runs along the unisex browline frame. The Intrecciato Rim optical unisex style might see the woven motif engraved throughout, but the resulting look remains light and versatile.
Available in matte or semi-matte finishes, the Intrecciato eyewear range sees a colour palette of black, brown and Havana, with accents of blues, greens and pinks for good measure. Expect the best in quality – the Italian label only uses premium Italian acetate and Japanese titanium in its manufacturing, and each pair is hand-crafted by expert artisans that hail from both countries.
