Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2018

They say timing is everything and one is inclined to guess that Tomas Maier would agree. He operates on a schedule — the calendar is often the first thing he references during previews of his collections, whether for Bottega Veneta or his own line. At a walk-through of the former’s pre-fall lineup, Maier divvied the clothes up into three deliveries — May, June and July — almost designing three micro-themes within one collection, each based on what he thinks women would want at that exact time of year.
The first part was the next step from his spring collection — light, soft, unadorned derivations of some of the silhouettes shown on the runway. Light pink dresses in airy, washed silk were suited to summer’s early days. Then, for June, “What do I need?” asked Maier. “It’s probably a wedding, a christening. Events come up.” Special occasions warranted special details, such as an easy, robe-like printed cotton coat over a multicolored bronze, blue and white paillette dress in a simple, sporty silhouette. When it finally gets closer to real fall, Maier wanted to tease the season with sophisticated back-to-school/back-to-work shapes, such as graphic plaid skirts, leather jackets and ultralight knit polos with

Bottega Veneta Weaves a Tale at London’s Chiswick House

PARTYING WITH PALLADIO: “We wanted to bring part of the Veneto region to London for a real celebration,” said Claus Dietrich Lars, chief executive of Bottega Veneta, as he cast his gaze around Chiswick House, the 18th-century Palladian-style villa in west London.
The villa, built by Lord Burlington, was filled with northeastern Italian flavor on Thursday night, from the prosecco tasting stations and Aperol spritz cocktail bar to the Bottega Veneta craftspeople who were busily weaving the brand’s famous intrecciato designs with strips of leatherlike strands of fettuccine as guests walked among the rooms.
There were areas dedicated to all of the brand’s products, from leather goods to fragrance to jewelry, while downstairs in the garden, guests were offered Venetian-inspired food made by Giorgio Locatelli.

In the fragrance room, the entire Parco Palladiano collection was on display, with each juice meant to evoke a single moment in the day, including the smell of the air in the garden at dawn to high noon under the orange tree.
It was the biggest event that Bottega had ever done in London, with guests including Sabine Getty, Poppy Delevingne, Amber Le Bon, Lady Kitty Spencer, Arizona Muse, Marc Quinn, François-Henri Pinault and a host

Bottega Veneta Resort 2018

Considerations about the weather and different consumer behavior were top of mind for Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier in designing the brand’s cruise collection. “It’s totally changed now. Women like to see clothes in season — when it’s cold they want a coat — and they shop in a different way compared with the past. You see it on daily store results,” said Maier during a walk-through in Milan. “They have different priorities and time is luxury number one for everyone.”
As the months progress, from the early deliveries of the cruise season in October until the later ones in December, so does the weight and colors of clothes change from, say, a ribbed turtleneck sweater in lilac worn with a suede skirt suit in a contrasting rusty color, to lighter tech duchesse skirts or a studded poplin dress with a full circle skirt fit for the festive season, for parties and “going away,” Maier opined. “The darker and shorter the days, women want something uplifting, colorful and appealing, if nature can’t give it to them.”
To wit, Maier opted for unusual combinations and variations of colors and “a bit of eccentricity,” he said, but also monochromatic designs, as in a

Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2017

Tomas Maier is known for his pragmatism. He doesn’t gush and gloss over his collections, whether at Bottega Veneta or his own line. He’s a realist. So a little real talk for his Bottega Veneta pre-fall lineup, shown earlier than ever: “It’s kind of a stupid name for a collection that delivers between May and June, right?” said Maier, during a preview at the look book shoot in Long Island City. He went on to point out the lightweight fabrics — silk crepe, gabardine, ultralight napa, double-faced cashmere jacquard and knits — mentioning that he views pre-fall as a continuation of the spring runway (his was fabulous) and a wardrobe update of things that women who come to the store will want at that time of year. That meant chic sweats for travel, neat suits, knit dresses and bags galore.
Maier’s no nonsense attitude was appreciated even if it downplayed the practical romance of the collection. Full of beautiful colors that ranged from dusty, faded pinks and purples chosen “because they look really pretty on the skin” to rich, bright orange, red and yellow, many of the looks carried on the Forties romance that Maier updated so wonderfully for spring.
