Bottega Veneta

Autumn-Winter 2011/12 –  Sure to put a smile on one’s face, Veneta delivered a lovely array of colours for what began a quality collection. With a sixties vibe in the air, the bobbly coat of mustard and curly lambs-wool was mixed with a frizzy beehive. The bobbly affect set the tone for nubbly wool coats and tweeds of coral, white or peach and equally, raw fuzzy edges which rounded of the clothes and onto the fuzzy bags. To continue this feel was the nude chiffon tops wrapped loosely in stripes of ripped lace whilst raw cotton panelled bodices were wrapped in concertinaed silk. The feel for the fabric shone; as did the colouring with A-line skirts in orange, fuchsia or cream and silk in grey, regal and dark gold.  The ladylike silhouettes were feminine to the core, but with it came a clash of fabric and colour to create a collection of mastery.
