Instead of focusing on just one era, Tomas Maier decided to bring both the ‘60s and the ‘70s back on the Bottega Veneta runway. The clothes here aren’t stuck in the past; they just have the perfect hint of nostalgia for the bygone eras. And there’s no better interpretation of that than the prevalence of pants. There was a loose pair covered in a sleek pattern of gold dots and a fiery orange pair cut in a leg-lengthening way. Maier’s take on flares are bound to be a hit, as they were both flattering and chic.
The most obvious nod to the inspiration was a lime and forest green dress with a geometric detail, outlined in gold and topped off with high shoulders and a prim collar. But despite its obvious throwback charm, it still maintained a modern air, when paired with slim maroon trousers. As for the luxe factor that the brand has been groomed on, there were separates in alligator, like a jacket with a funnel collar and a skirt that hit just above the knee, detailed with a trail of buttons. And all the looks here were paired with simple loafers or sumptuous gold boots, plus a few envy-inducing accessories: exactly what Bottega is all about.
