Bottega Veneta A/W 2017
Mood board: A collection that oozed sophisticated glamour, creative director Tomas Maier presented a series of forties era shapes, from button up tea-dresses to double- breasted coats, that elegantly flattered the waist. Featuring lurex, double cashmere, high-shine leather and fur, looks included a peach leather skirt suit with embellished floral details, a cape in autumnal tones and a timeless tuxedo-style overcoat.
Best in show: A yellow double-breasted jacket in double cashmere with pockets with detachable shearling details, paired with a matching pencil skirt. A series of evening dresses at the climax of the show, which included belted gold evening gowns, and a series of button-up forties style dresses in metallic fabrics, with beaded cuffs and collars.
Finishing touches: Cinched belts came with crystal embellished double buckles, which glinted alongside gem-detail hair clips. A series of purse-like leather clutches also nodded to the heritage of the leather house, in its signature intrecciato weave.
