The Pullover-Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier had a soft vision in mind for men when his collection was revealed in Milan today. Inspired by the simplicity and ease of the pullover, Maier set out to present a lineup that interpreted the basic for different occasions, socially and culturally. Using natural tones, silk chiffon, organza, silk poplin and silk crepe de chine, the collection got off to a start with tunics and lace-front tops. Moving on to anoraks and light layers, Maier incorporated his genius work with color and patterns, creating a visually stunning geometric print for the season. Experimenting with a touch of fringe and the occasional synthetic fabric, the collection really made an effort to convey a casually chic lifestyle. This idea even transferred over to suiting, which was relaxed, cut from linen and adorned with floral prints. When not in loose trousers and easily accessible shirting, Bottega Veneta’s man was a sophisticated vision in a suit or a charming man with great humor, boasting a pullover sweater, featuring a graphic print of a full-button down polo. In short, Bottega Veneta set the season to a laid-back vibe, mixing a sportier romantic with the spirited Bohemian.
