MFW AW14: Bottega Veneta

Who wears the trousers at Bottega Veneta? After this season, nobody, just creative director Tomas Maier for one, who dictated an AW15 sans trouser, undoubtedly embracing a new functional femininity with a confident collection that owes its stylish rectitude to endearing geometric graphics, poised for instant success.



The striking shapely aesthetic, clean, crisp and defiant, configures the Veneta body with micro folds that become contradicted with loose pleats for maximum linear effect, whilst some numbers take on the subdued severity of asymmetric cuts, and others, an op-art print illusionary. Nonetheless, stern, dressed to kill tailoring was an important component, numerous skirt and sweater combinations made sure of this, which also employed the over-ruling palette of contrasting colours, stemming from a jarring midnight black base note.



One will most likely also take pleasure in cherry-picking their favourite Bottega handbag this season, ripe for the picking to say the least, with luscious must-have snakeskin pieces corresponding in arresting hues that complemented their respective outfits. The fluent motion at the house this season, an abstracted apotheosis of spirited sophistication, was altogether largely innocuous, but it worked, concluding with a selection of eveningwear efforts that interpreted the feel of AW14 with statement plisse adaptions, adding a final dimension to an interesting enough collection.
