We’re excited to introduce to you the Bottletop Autumn/Winter 2014 accessories collection, featuring a sumptuous autumnal colour palette of aubergine and gun metal grey alongside burnt orange and muted silver.
Amazona Mini Enamel in aubergine and gun metal grey camouflage
Two new styles at the high luxury end of the collection for AW14 are named after Luisa and Claudia, members of the team from the Bottletop atelier who have pioneered the development of ‘Tranca Mistura’, the Bottletop signature braiding technique that blends upcycled metal with leather in Bottletop designs. These new shapes are sleek, elegant envelope clutches that also double as highly sophisticated tech accessory sleeves, comfortably housing iPads and 12 inch laptops.

The Bottletop Enamel Line delivers the contemporary edge to the collection, consisting of hand painted ring pulls in rich, sumptuous tones and multi-coloured winter camouflage; kaleidoscopically converging lines collide with repetitive geometric progressions and decorative fragments. Gloss black shimmers alongside burnt orange. The Enamel Line offers Bottletop favourites the Rio and Carolina alongside new must haves, the Mini Tatiana holdall and Suzanna cross body tassel bag.
Bottletop classic Rio now available in black/silver camouflage
Carolina in aubergine
All styles in both of these lines will continue to be limited to 102 bags per style for FW14. This edition marks the launch date (2 January 2012) of the Bottletop atelier, enabling the team of dedicated female artisans to focus on specialist craftsmanship technique and product innovation in Salvador, Brazil.
The AW14 collection also sees the amplification of our commitment to sustainability through the use of Amazon Rainforest friendly leather. Following our acclaimed Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) Award win for ‘excellence in ethics and aesthetics’ we have pledged to use this leather across all of our collections going forward.
