Bottega Veneta A/W 2016
Tomas Maier made a convincing case for long, lean silhouettes with clingy, cool knits that gave Bottega Veneta's clothes an original new look
Mood board: Tomas Maier made a convincing case for long, lean silhouettes next winter, not with his usual woven fabrics but instead in clingy, cool knits that gave Bottega Veneta's clothes an original new look.
Best in show: The second-skin, long sleeve knit dresses with knife pleat skirts were sensational this season, especially the versions with built in bustiers. But our favourite pieces were Bottega's new plaid coats that came varnished in a layer of clear, brilliant sequins and a tuft of coloured fur at the collar.
Finishing touches: The long lines of beautiful wool felt suiting was accentuated with rope-like knit carves and emerald coloured stones that gleamed on earrings, bracelets and even hair clips. Bottega also reintroduced an iconic tie-string handbag model from 1971, which was updated in splashy coloured exotic skins.
