BOTTEGA VENETA FALL/WINTER 2017 COLLECTIONS SHOW

“This is a silhouette that is like it has been drawn, starting from a precise shoulder line, as if you can see the pencil mark on a sketch.” Tomas Maier, Creative Director

Defined sharp silhouettes, with a strong shoulder that emphasizes the fitted waist and rounded hips.

Double-faced cashmere jackets and coats are color-blocked and free from any adornment, save for two metal piercings to hold the neck of a cape.

Individual pieces add to the silhouette, such as knits with an exaggerated shoulder, double-breasted tailoring to fit the waist, and jodhpurs for a shaped hip.

Materials are expressive, from brushed-out goat to shaved shearling, or leather that is shiny or perfectly matte. Colors in the collection include ochre, terracotta and ice blue.

Metal thread long gowns are like they have been poured onto the body. Lamé gowns are smocked at the waist, and metal thread jacquard gowns are embellished with metal studs.

Wedge shoes and chunky heels anchor the look, while structured bags come in knitted gold lurex or small and supple intrecciato buckets.

“It is glamorous, but in a very Bottega Veneta way. There is an ease to the sophistication, because it is natural.”

Menswear explores the sharply tailored line, and plays with variations of the tuxedo from day to night.

Double-breasted coats have a neat shoulder and fitted waist, with cuts that take on traditions such as the riding or frock coat.

Tuxedos are cut in a variety of styles, from traditional and trimmed with grosgrain to tuxedo blousons.

Pants are cut for ease, sometimes with pleats, and are often cropped. Lurex sweaters are expressive, while wide bow ties add to the mood.

Men’s round-toe lace-ups have a buckle detail, while rain boots have a buckle strap. Bags are squared in shape, with a press-stud opening for functionality.

“The men’s and women’s complement each other. They were designed at the same time, and speak the same language.”
