Milan Fashion Week AW17: Bottega Veneta

From the moment Bottega Veneta show opened, one can feel the audience’s excitement all the way backstage. Tomas Maier goes back to the 1940s and exuded a formal collection inspired by old hollywood glamour for both women and men.

With this well-dressed range, Maier focused on the female silhouette, introducing long lines, broad shoulders and rounded hips tailored at the waist, as the designer said in his show’s notes the shape delivers “the pencil mark on a sketch.”

Maier is known for using modern techniques, to make every woman feel comfort. Riding trousers paired with ribbed sweaters and knee-high boots was the first look that set the tone of the show, new modern designs then followed including day-dresses with multi-directional pleats, fur coats and elegant detailed metallic-thread evening gowns gave the collection a pure liquid effect.

Amid all this,  just about every look was pure perfection from top-to-bottom. Suede wedge footwear paired with polka dots stockings and crystal brooch hair accessories finished off the looks quite glamourously. Full of beautiful colours ranged from mustard yellow, tangerine, black, sugar grey, and shiny metallics.
