To celebrate the opening of a new store in Dubai, Bottega Veneta has created a special, limited edition version of the stretch knot handbag. Available in a numbered edition of 25, it will be sold exclusively in the Mall of the Emirates Fashion Dome store. The Dubai Knot is an elegant variation on Bottega Veneta’s celebrated Knot clutch, with a slightly elongated shape that lends the bag a sleek and feminine silhouette. Made of lizard in a lush shade of fuchsia, the Dubai Knot is also small masterpiece of craftsmanship, with corners sheathed in hand-woven intrecciato antique sterling silver. The bag’s iconic knot closure is also handcrafted from antique sterling silver. “We are delighted to be opening in the new Mall of the Emirates Fashion Dome and proud to mark the occasion with an exclusive edition of one of Bottega Veneta’s signature pieces,” says Creative Director Tomas Maier. “The Dubai Knot captures the sophistication, optimism, and imagination of this one-of-a-kind city. As Bottega Veneta continues to expand in the Middle East, we look forward to offering our customers an ever-wider range of the unique products and exceptional service that define the brand,” says Marco Bizzarri, President and CEO of Bottega Veneta. The Dubai Knot will be introduced on October 20, 2010, at the opening of the Bottega Veneta store in Mall of the Emirates Fashion Dome. Each bag is numbered and the words “Dubai 2010” are inscribed on a sterling plate inside the clutch. The Dubai Knot is currently available for pre-order at the Mall of the Emirates Fashion Dome store.
