About the Autumn / Winter 2014 Collection
The Bottletop Autumn Winter 2014 'Winter Camouflage' collection features a sumptuous autumnal colour palette of aubergine and gun metal grey alongside burnt orange and muted silver.
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’, Bottletop’s 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.
Bottletop’s 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 tassle bag.
AW14 also sees the amplification of Bottletops commitment to sustainability through the use of Amazon Rainforest friendly leather. Following Bottletop’s acclaimed Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) Award win for ‘excellence in ethics and aesthetics’ the brand has pledged to use this leather across all of their collections going forward.
All styles in both of these lines will continue to be limited to 102 bags per style for AW14. 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.
