Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2017

by Paige Reddinger

Gigi Hadid and Lauren Hutton! Two iconic blonde beauties walked arm-in-arm down the runway at Bottega Veneta. What better way to illustrate Bottega Veneta’s timeless appeal? Not to mention, the brand is celebrating its 50th anniversary (as Tomas Maier his 15th year at the helm) and Hadid and Hutton were born roughly 50 years apart. Hadid strolled out in a pink taffeta top and pants and Hutton, in a beige trench coat. The two could have easily switched outfits and still looked appropriate, which is a testament to this brand’s subtly chic appeal that has quietly kept it a top luxury brand for decades. Even trend-hungry women still find the brand’s iconic Intrecciato accessories highly desirable. Hutton first carried one in the 1980 film American Giglio, and all these years later it is still a status bag. That bag and 14 others from the archive have been reproduced this season. But in case you are looking for something a little less quiet, the copper leather trench, fuchsia leather dress, and the high-waisted leather pencil skirt worn on Karen Elson will be worth showing off.
