Bottega Veneta

Spring-Summer 2012 – It was hard to find the theme here. Perhaps that was the point. The profusion of colours and textures were the focus of the show. There was a no rules attitude; an “exuberant romp” some might say. Out first, corseted dresses in petrol green and deep purple. Being true to words, there was sharks teeth stitching and narrow bra straps for an edgy look. In juxtapose, next came shirt dresses of fine matt silk interspersed with leather panels. An abundance of leather consisted of a black leather apron dresses, smart black trousers with black lapels, and, noticeably, a blue leather biker jacket. The plentitude of colours, including blue, went from indigo to fuchsia to orange and then to red. The cornucopia of fabrics continued: wide mesh knits in blue, cream and black; debonair silk dresses with geometric patterns of black, white and red; and dresses overlaid in transparent PVC. It was a collection of mix and match.
