Tomas Maier is not one to brag, let alone engage in simple backstage chit chat about his collections for Bottega Veneta - lucky for him the clothes do all of the talking. This season the discourse revolved around a chic sort of rumpled-ness on softly crinkled washed leathers or wool suits with a rain-dripped effect woven into the garment. The result offered intriguing texture without ever shouting ‘pattern!’ from the rooftops. A palette of muted shades interspersed with the occasional pop of ochre or lime corduroy was beautifully chosen, underscoring the understated but highly covetable lexicon of luxury on which Bottega has built its base. As an added bonus, the finale of velvet jacket tuxedos paired with wool pants appeared as if they had just (purposefully) unrolled out of a suitcase and could just as easily roll right back up.
