the attenuated lines of a Giacometti sculpture with a side thought for the attitude of madame Gres"... It was a truly scrumptious style recipe created by Tomas Maier for his Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2008 collection that so happens to be one of my ultimate Bottega favourites.
I love the muted colours that always remind me of the ancient stones and faded buildings posing against the pastel blue sky. I adore the hidden secrets of corsetry invisible to the eye. And simply the sheer fact that every piece, from the tiny sparking earrings to the dresses and the shoes are made with love by human hands...
Truly timeless and utterly elegant, it is a sort of fashion masterpiece that I can admire for hours and hours in a manner of Bottega Veneta aficionado. Even more so, use some of the ideas for styling any regular classic trench or a suit by adjusting a sleeve here and rolling a hem there.
"Made in Italy" at its very best.
