Milan Men’s: Crisp Contrast from Bottega Veneta

By Sarah Bochicchio

June 25, 2013

Bottega Veneta’s spring/summer 2014 show in Milan was saturated with juxtaposition, playing with polarity in palette and silhouette, while maintaining an overall feel of a crisp and modern collection.

In the show, tailored pants were paired with full sleeves and wider jackets. Still focused on a more masculine style, the materials were less contradictory, with garments of cotton, leather and suede. The shoes, too, spoke the breezy language of summer, made of woven fabrics, in a slipper-like style.

The colors spanned the grayscale, while dipping into rich tones of purple, green, and red. Checks seemed to be the most prominent pattern, allowing Bottega Veneta to present strong lines and tailoring as a foil to the airier aspects.

Said Creative Director, Tomas Maier, “The collection is more about contrast than anything else.” Balance, however, seems just as crucial and Bottega Veneta certainly found the right proportions.
