Meet the new silhouette introduced by Creative Director Daniel Lee

Spearheading his way at his freshly minted role, Daniel Lee has created Bottega Veneta's new bag for the season. The handheld soft leather clutch is aptly named ‘The Pouch' and features a voluminous, rounded form — a very relaxed update from its iconic predecessor, the hard-shelled ‘Intrecciato Knot Clutch'. Long-standing fans will be pleased to know that the signature woven motif is recreated in extra soft calf in the brand new shape. Other styles include The Butter Calf Pouch which features panels of smooth leather and the Cocco Souple that comprises of four types of skins to produce a croc-like effect. Available in a wide array of colour selections including toned-down neutrals to wild punchy brights, this palette can satiete both ends of the spectrum from extreme minimalists to hard-core maximalists.

No matter which finish you decide with, all versions of 'The Pouch' come equipped with ample room thanks to its shape. Your daily essentials that you'd normally fit into a medium-sized handbag can easily make the cut. If you prefer to travel light however, perhaps The Pouch 20 best fits your bill.
