Bottega Veneta mid-season “washed out” collection Spring 2016
Clothes laundry represents an important process because if something goes wrong, instead of white clothes, you can have something in a strange pink color or worse, your black pants fully covered with yellow-orange bleach spots. Of course for each fashionista this is a big tragedy. In such outfit more probably you can not go anywhere and those clothes can be simply thrown away.
It seems that Thomas Maier, the designer of Bottega Veneta brand, was inspired by such an unsuccessful laundry and created a collection with washed out outfits. The faded effect the designer obtained on purpose and probably he spent more than one hour in search for desired decisions and the result was worth the cost. In order to be convinced in that, let us see the masterpieces of the German designer.
As for the color scheme, the collection can be divided into two: one – pastel, and the second intense and eye-catching.
If we talk about the style of dresses, a clear advantage belongs to midi length with crew neck or under the neck. The discreet model is perfect, both for wearing with heeled court shoes, and with “ballerinas.”
In respect of the fit, maxi dresses basically are similar with below knee style. Flowing fabrics and the effect of bleach on the material allow the simple fit to look extremely festive.
Shirts and pencil skirts or A-shaped skirts in light shades are perfect for the office during the warmer time of the year.
Trapezoid skirts above knee continue to be in trend. For several seasons, especially this style dominates among short length products. At Bottega Veneta can be seen creasy styles with large front pockets.
Loose sweaters made of think jersey worn on top of a shirt or without the shirt elegantly complement an office outfit and will not let you freeze in a cool spring morning.
The belt deserves a particular attention because in Thomas Maier collection it is present almost in every look. The designer chose an extremely wide and coarse item, that helps emphasize the waist and visually lengthen the silhouette. The effect of color fusion is present on this accessory as well.
Shoes with straps and ties are a trend that smoothly moved from the last warm season in this season. Sharp toe and thin heel or the absence of any platform is the feature of products. Sequins are the most popular element of the shoe decor in the collection of this designer.
Bottega Veneta handbags, similar with the clothes, are endowed with a faded effect. Short handles and trapezoid shape or rectangular clutch are the styles that were presented in the Lookbook.
Reflecting on the demonstrated collection, we want to stress that all designer’s efforts were not in vain. He definitively managed to inspire others with his collection. We are sure that many of us will look differently at the clothes that after yesterday laundry could have been almost thrown away. The conclusion is that we can always find a wise decision.
