A contemporary reinterpretation of the iconic leather weave motif, Arco is a destructured, orthogonal creation framing the brand’s signature designs in softer lines.

Designed by creative director Daniel Lee, the new entry at Bottega Veneta is defined by architectural references: it is named after Milan’s Arch of Peace, the neoclassic monument being the background to the label’s Fall 2019 collection, while its upper part features curved handles on a rectangular panel shaping it as an arch.

Made in a new type of French calf consisting of leather and suede bands woven together, Arco comes in four sizes and a range of natural colors, and is refined by a bonded interior for an effortless, yet sophisticated line rich in handcrafted details.
