Why has there been a price increase?
There are several reasons why Bottega Veneta, much like many other luxury brands, has increased its prices. The main reason is the fact that prices are rising in the production and transportation of these luxury goods, and so the prices of items in the luxury world have increased to reflect this.
In the last few years, the prices of raw materials, the production, and the shipping of Bottega Veneta luxury goods have increased, which is why there have been recent price hikes. There have been many other fashion brands, such as Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, and Dior, have also increased their prices.
With this said, Bottega has done something that no other luxury brand is yet to do: Bottega Veneta now offers a lifetime warranty on all its bags. This means that if you buy a Bottega bag and it breaks, the brand will fix it for you. While we fully support this decision (and think all luxe brands should follow suit), it’s understandable how such a policy change can lead to higher prices in the short term.
Finally, it is also worth noting that when a brand implements a price increase, the price of the leather goods also increases on the resale market. This means if you are looking at a Bottega Veneta bag at a slightly reduced resale price on the secondhand market, you will have to pay a little more after this price increase, so it is always best to pick up a new Bottega Veneta bag sooner rather than later!
