Bottega Veneta



Tomas Maier created abstract pieces of art using blank canvas, popped with saturated pigments of cadmium yellow, fuchsia and thalo green. Loose natural cotton separates were trimmed in stark white strips of tape; a square-cut dress with wide side pockets was segmented into horizontal bands that tied at the sides, while a corset top used narrower strips to define its contours. Paper-bag silhouettes for crisp bermudas and tissue-thin pencil skirts were simply knotted at the waist. Bits of tape at the shoulder held dresses together and strapless versions were collaged with grosgrain ribbon and small ruffles. Throughout were the label’s signature luxe handbags, some in classic browns and others in oil paint colors, including cobalt blue.
