Bottega Veneta’s “The Pouch” is one of the best sellers from the Italian fashion house. It was designed by creative director Daniel Lee as one of his first releases when joining the brand in July 2018.
The Pouch is simply that – a pouch bag with no pockets, straps or handles (though the mini pouch does come with straps). Despite the classic design, the bag has an intriguing rebellious feel to it. I say this because The Pouch has no branding on the exterior whatsoever. No metal logos, tags or imprinted branding anywhere.

The Pouch was definitely one of 2019’s greatest “it” bags, with it being in high demand and constantly selling out. Mid-way through 2020, it is still their most popular bag and it’s classic yet sophisticated style makes me think that it will become a staple for Bottega Veneta, rather than a short-term fad.
