Bottega Veneta Resort 2018
It was luxe-touch fabrics all the way, from the sinuous silk jerseys and printed duchesses satins to Maier’s colourful shearlings and classic suede and leather, coupled with cashmere knits and crisp denim.
Colour emphasized that non-seasonal quality with a bias towards cool blues and greens, contrasted with rich autumnal browns and berry tones. Soft ivory added an essential timeless counterbalance, and there was a single nod to the current obsession with sugar-coated millennial pink.
Overall, silhouettes had a subtle, retro 70s feel, from the duo of pleated silk jersey dresses to fantasy-shearling chubby coats and a windowpane-checked cropped double-breasted jacket and matching A-line skirt, with casual field-jacket pocket placements compounding the vintage look.
