Bottega Veneta first introduced this clutch in the late 1970s, but it was not until in 1980, after Lauren Hutton was spotted with this bag in the movie American Gigolo, that this intrecciato Nappa clutch earned its moniker.
And we experienced this sense of déjà vu when we saw the actress herself strutting down the Bottega Veneta runway during the Spring/Summer 2017 show with that very same bag.
Resurrected from the Bottega archives, it is now released in a special re-edition of the bag. Called The Lauren 1980, the clutch is available exclusively in Gigolô Red, and comes with a special tag on the bag's interior, engraved with "The Lauren 1980".
