Milan Diaries: Bottega Veneta’s Dark Romance

The Bottega Veneta show, really is a treat for someone who loves their luxury. Trust creative director Tomas Maier to understand the concept of Personal luxury:  individual pieces that reveal their complexity and uniqueness to those who wear them.

It’s amazing how so few designers realize the abject appreciation they’ll be given for allowing women a glimpse of simple, reserved, perfectly cut tailoring.

Knits in different gauges replace woven materials for the softest long coats, cocktail dresses and pants.

Techniques and embroideries are elevated and individual, from needle-punched fabrics to purposefully irregular beading.

An extensive collection of new bags, inspired by an iconic tie string style from the archives from 1971. The focus is on smaller bag shapes, with extensive use of crocodile and exotic leather, as well as nappa leather and the introduction of shiny calf.
