The Bottega Veneta 2017 Spring/Summer Men’s Collection is inspired by the vintage era of 1940’s, where the style could be seen to embody obvious classic elements such as the loose silhouette or the vintage and reminiscent shades to create a somewhat subdued yet elegant look for modernity.
The loose silhouette is the basis of the design for this collection, be it for the high-waisted trousers, the long coats or the jumpers. This creates the modern male look with the casual elements while at the same time bring in a sense of elegance and subdued grace. The 1940’s vintage fashion is tailored into this collection for a reminiscing effect.
When it comes to coloring, this collection features a range of teal, grey, brown, auburn, black and earthy colors. The darker shades give the collection a subdued effect, but the textures used for the designs such as nylon, cotton, silk, matte textures or metallic textures enhance the overall visual of the collection.
The collection also features military-style jackets, aviation leather jackets, elegant jumpers, loose leather pants, blouses and minimalistic, silk-textured suits. Apart from menswear, the collection also encompasses shoes and bags that play with textures such as crocodile skin, ostrich skin, deer skin and calfskin for an outstanding interpretation of leather fashion.
