Driven by the vision of Creative Director Tomas Maier, the eyewear constantly evolves the signature intrecciato motif thanks to an innovative and seductive allure that represents Bottega Veneta’s longstanding tradition and understated elegance. Season after season, the unique balance between the skilled craftsmanship and technology produce collections of lasting beauty and uncompromised quality.

As the latest representation of this outstanding craftsmanship, Bottega Veneta presents Felis, a pair of new cat-shaped sunglasses only available in 500 numbered Limited-Edition pieces.
