Many lives of a Bottega Veneta dress

01/08/2013

Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2013
Bottega Veneta is my endless love story. And though I may never be able to wear every Bottega dress that I have fallen in love with, I will always enjoy collecting the photos from numerous editorials, re-living my dreams and savouring every detail.

Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2013
From the research point of view – so curious to see how different countries and magazines make their choices. While the first dress was on demand in Italy, the floral numbers travelled all over the world, from Europe to the States, Mexico, Thailand and Japan reuniting in Russia half way through.

And Edie Campbell got to wear hers twice! I guess it’s a bit like meeting an old friend or colleague you’ve already done a shoot with. Only, unlike the dress that, for obvious reasons, cannot speak, the friend would definitely comment on Edie’s hair.

  3. The concept of which fashions are popular in which countries has always intrigued me; overall trends are supposed to be a universal thing dictated by the fashion industry, but as I've travelled I've found that in reality they tend to be quite geographically specific - what French women like is different from what English women like is different from what Canadian women like, etc., etc. Based on my knowledge of Italian women and their bold, fearless style, I'm not surprised that they chose the fringed dress over the floral one!

  10. Hi Natalia! Its an interesting topic, admit that I never think much about how much a dress could be popular in a country and less in another one. Though here in Italy seems the fringed one is on top, I would prefer the red one with the floral pattern. Oh my, I simply adore it! Not surprise it travelled all around the world..everywhere but not to my closet!:P Kisses dear, have a good evening! xo
