The look A modern take on handicrafts dominated by dresses featuring sophisticated artisanal detailing.
Key pieces Corseted dresses with pleated and plissé detailing, a pinafore dress with PVC panelling and a selection of embellished shift styles featuring artisanal beading and sequined bodices. Other dresses came with a patchwork-effect fabric mix with textiles draped or wrapped around the body for a handmade, homespun feel. Boyfriend-style jeans were teamed with blazers and over-sized tasselled scarves.
Colours A saturated palette of blocked jewelled tones including emerald and ruby alongside purples and oranges.
Commercial appeal Bottega Veneta’s interpretation of handcrafted detailing set a glamorous direction that will influence dresses for spring 12.
