NYFW: The artistic yet effortless appeal of Bottega Veneta

New York: There could not have been a more fitting venue than the American Stock Exchange for Tomas Maier’s A/W presentation for Bottega Veneta, particularly since New York gave rise to his inspiration.

The strength of Maier’s collection lay in the prominent silhouettes and defined lines of his clothes that were architectural in shape, languid and comfortable yet accompanied by an understated air of confidence, and elegance with a discreet sex appeal.

Maier drenched his silky satins in vibrant liquid colour – louche pyjama suits enveloped in easy oversized coats or the singularly powerful dresses for day to evening, cut in combinations of velvet and lace.

The attention to detail was incredibly intricate, with contemporary embroideries and cut-outs informed by elements of skyscrapers and elevators grills. Delicate silver filigree trailed around seams and pockets of smartly cut suits, further enhancing the artistic craftsmanship of the House. – Lizzy Bowring
