Diving back into the Bottega Veneta archives gave me so much joy and an enormous amount of pleasure. Once again, made me realise the uniqueness of the brand, the other-wordly quality of the pieces and the level of craftsmanship and expertise required to achieve this level of perfection. Incredible.

FALL/WINTER 2004
"It isn't like normal ready-to-wear. I had the concept of designing clothes like accessories. Everyone has their own personality, and will pick things out to wear in their own way." Tomas Maier

FALL/WINTER 2007

"Impactful glamour that picked up on a vaguely forties silhouette. If genuine luxury resides in out-of-the-ordinary things crafted with an intimate understanding of a life attainable only by the few, then Bottega Veneta could well stand as its contemporary definition." Sarah Mower / style.com

SPRING/SUMMER 2010

"A serene and beautifully judges collection done almost entirely in shades of cream. One of the best summations so far this season of the feeling for sport, pale colour, and the textured aesthetics of humble materials - in Maier's hands, even the synthetics can become the epitome of sophistication."

  6. I would have loved to see you in that beautiful outfit. You styled your Bottega ensamble beautifully and I really like the feathers pattern details. BTW, I completely agree with Claire: your self-portrait is so nice.

  7. It is such a beautiful dress! And I know what you mean re-outfit posts, they are a bit of a hassle (I live alone so I just bought a tripod to try to post some more often!).

    And I also agree, I think you look beautiful in your self-portrait (might try one of those myself in my bathroom mirror!

  11. Oh those shoes are gorgeous! Good luck with getting to grips with the tripod, the first time I used it, it took me ages to get it set up, heaps of problems, but now I can take it up and down like a pro. Looking forward to the outfit posts, but also love the images you posted here.
