Summing up this season’s collection, Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier explained that with this collection, they “wanted to address the different ways men visualize themselves. Bottega Veneta’s goal is always to expand the vocabulary of men’s wear, to add individuality and expression. So there is sophistication, but also playfulness, bravado, eccentricity, rebelliousness – it all depends on how it’s put together.” Taking that cue, Maier set about with presenting looks for the man of any occasion. While a loose fitted layering of activewear hinted at a chic casualness, low slung denim provided for a sharp contrast against the collection’s more formal approach. The finer points of the collection were constructed by the marriage of high-waist trousers and boxy blazers. Whether dressed in black or a deep purple, Maier’s fall range delivered a functional nonchalance that is ultimately refreshing.
