Bottega Veneta Fashion Show Womenswear Milan SS2017

The see now buy now concept that has been circling around many fashion shows was nowhere to be found at Bottega Veneta. Thomas Maier is not interested in commercial immediacy. He wants to design beautiful clothing, made of impeccable materials, that will last more than just one season. So his collection was more about wardrobe classics than it was about trends or modernity. Vittoria Ceretti opened the show in a long croc leather jacket and a pair of high waisted 7/8 pants. A dark look for S/S2017, but perhaps Maier wasn’t focusing on one season eather. Just as he was not focusing on one gender (it was a collection of both mens and womenswear) or age (many of the ensembles would work for women of any age, even Lauren Hutton, who carried an intrecciato woven clutch bag in the 1980 movie American Gigolo, entered the runway). And indeed, we could see those belted trenchcoats and tee dresses be worn by a large group of women, any time of the year, to just about any occasion. Lots of (bright colored) leather, leather detailing (belts, pockets, collars), a classic silhouette (with a focus on the waist) and a selection of fresh looking statement bags (15 bags from the Veneta archive were reproduced). 50 years of Bottega Veneta celebrated with timeless style.
