Milan Fashion Week: Bottega Veneta

As you’d expect from one of Milan’s least flashy labels, Tomas Maier’s latest Bottega Veneta collection was an exercise in class and precision.

It had an old time feel, whether that was from the largely vintage tones, the primly belted silhouettes or the models’ hair, but somehow it came together in a modern way. Perhaps it was the intriguing peplumed pleating Maier sculpted out of wool that brought it up to date, the German using the material’s stiffness to also create angular sleeves
and jutting lapels. Crumpled detailing, asymmetry and duchess satin joined the oh-so chic party.

In short Neat and tidy(ish), this balanced separates and dresses well, with Maier’s sculptor’s hand deftly adding interest.
