On the second day in Milan, Bottega Veneta’s aim was to revitalise the suit as what came down the runway was silhouettes and cuts suitable for any man with a penchant for tailoring.
Beginning with an all black collection featuring one piece, double-breasted or three piece looks that were tight yet flowed due to the choice of fabric, a fabric that is bespoke to the house of Bottega Veneta.
It was this kind of forward thinking that made the suiting, which then began to subtly transform into hues of baby pink, bronze and deep grey work so well for next winter. It seems to be part of a collective from Milan that wanted to keep things classic. No gimmicks – just straightforward silhouettes that kept alive the sense of masculinity such as leather infused cardigans, knee length raincoats and basic accessories such as a travel bag.
No muss, no fuss, that was Bottega Veneta’s supposed mantra for next winter, and by the looks of things there is something here for everyone.
