“Slim and trim decent” is the key word creative director Tomas Maier for Bottega Veneta women’s 2017 early spring Resort series given. Colorful candy color is the main tone of the new season Bottega Veneta, in order to add an elegant coat vitality.
“Long and lean, tailored and very proper,” said Tomas Maier of his vision during a walk-through of his resort collection for Bottega Veneta. A quartet of models showed candy-colored coats with matching shoes and bags, all playfully polished. “It’s very colorful, because this comes [into stores] at a time of the year when the light goes down, the days are short and I like it happy,” he said.
The collection picked up on the mood of fall — chic, luxe and authoritative — but with a more spirited vibe, thanks to the palette of dusty pastels and rainbow brights. Maier also played with contrasting textures, as in a velvet dress under a striped shearling coat and a simple cashmere knit top underneath a glossy leather coat. “I like the idea of the shine and matte together,” he explained.
Maier accessorized his lineup with color-blocked d’orsay heels, satin slippers and a selection of water snake and leather bags in small boxy shapes that heightened the overall polish.
