Bottega Veneta.... Best of Milan?

I really thought Bottega Veneta was the best show in Milan. The use of color (both bold and neutral), the prints and the surface textures were superb.

There are very few shows I see that (at some point) stop being a show, and start being a personal shopping preview.

I love the hues in the first image... scarlets... cranberries... plums... corals... in love <3

If I could find a young man that dressed so proper and stylish...! Yet to find one.

Also gushing over the blue python hold-all in the image <3

ermmm, i like their ears and their hair...I can't really get that into clothes that are just being modelled or shown rather than actually being worn.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:46 PM) : 

There is so much to love about Bottega Veneta's show...the beautiful colours, impeccable tailoring that always exudes effortless elegance, love the rumpled 'worn in look' too, so inviting!


Blogger João said ... (5:52 PM) : 

The clothes were pretty awesome!


Anonymous christopher said ... (5:55 PM) : 

yes, that saturated colour section was trememndous!


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:56 PM) : 

Beautiful shots and clothes, but what is with the short pants?


Blogger David said ... (6:00 PM) : 

A really beautiful collection


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:13 PM) : 

Unbelievable colors!First picture is absolutely spectacular. Thank you.


Blogger M.B said ... (6:21 PM) : 

I totally feel you on this one!

Check out the looks I loved on my blog:


Blogger Tereneh Idia said ... (6:27 PM) : 

Wow. I always think the Bottega shows both the men's and women's are some of the best of the season - any season. Tomas Maier is a design master. We are lucky to have him and we are lucky to have you to present the work in such a clear way. I think just these 2 images you present say so much about how men can dress in a modern, sexy way. I love it!


Blogger beths said ... (6:29 PM) : 

Like Soren, I love to see clothes worn on the street. It will be interesting to see how some of these pieces look when they appear in NY and Paris and (?) Stockholm. M. Sart, good luck finding them for us!That's what keeps me looking at this blog on a daily basis. Loved that off-white dress in Paris the other day!!


Anonymous melo said ... (6:47 PM) : 

Love the red.


Blogger tracey nguyen said ... (7:19 PM) : 

i think the inspiration for the hair came from robert pattinson! lol...jk.


Blogger KL said ... (7:43 PM) : 

I agree, I think Bottega Veneta was one of the best. The colors and patterns are amazing like similar designers who caught my eye like Etro, Comme Des Garcons and Dries van Noten.


Blogger said ... (7:44 PM) : 

just how do you take such amazingly clear shots under those lighting? i tried but failed terribly.

and wanted to drop a note to say hi, i met you outside the versace show, and asked if you're coming to london for the book launch.

love your blog!


Anonymous Roth and Ko. said ... (8:00 PM) : 

I love the nearly monochromatic red looks in the first pic. Vaguely Mephistophelean...

The devil wears Bottega Veneta.


Blogger sartorial nightlife said ... (8:02 PM) : 

are there any more pictures from the bottega veneta show? great work.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 PM) : 

Love both extremes, the bold deep, saturated colour and the neutrals, with subtle layering of tone, pattern and texture. Indeed, this collection seems very wearable. I love it...a lot.


Anonymous AntiGenre said ... (8:25 PM) : 

Everyone should wear such vivid colors!


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (8:25 PM) : 

I am in love with everything in these two pics.

The red and magenta is to die for. I hope this does not come across as politically incorrect or insensitive, BUT I hope bright colors are accepted by guys, no matter what their orientation. It's across the board sexy!

The peaked shoulder pads on the red jacket is sweet!

The earth tones in the second pic are fabulous too. The print jacket I hope starts a trend. The cut and texture of the suit in the back is hot -- in a good way!


Blogger Rebecca said ... (8:35 PM) : 

L-O-V-E the color, but I think the murse is a little freaky!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:45 PM) : 

the hair is very robert pattison-esque.

Bottega Veneta was definetly the best. Those bomber length fatigue jackets were killin me!!


Blogger Eric Zamorez said ... (9:55 PM) : 

As an avid photographer and model, also fashionisto, I love your blog. And I have to say Bottega Veneta was the best I saw of Spring 2010. The muted tones accented with that splash of color from a scarf or accessory, leading into the beautiful rich red tones; not to leave out the freshness of the models and the throw back to early 90's River Phoenix'esk hair; the entire collection was sophisticated but simple and held it's own. 100% agree. Moschino was a close second, and Roberto Cavalli was also exciting.

Thank you for the great post and fashion.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:57 PM) : 

Yeah, if you can get over the disastrous hair, then you see the clothes are really on point. Superb. Loving the strong shoulders and nonchalant glamour in that geranium suit.


Blogger Sputnik said ... (10:02 PM) : 

That hair is coming in strong, I sees it everywhere!

I really like the second picture that shows the more neutral colors. I really love the green and I especially like the suit in the back!

I just love those reds.They are so beautiful. Men, wear red!



Blogger Michael said ... (1:51 AM) : 

Best shoulders this season.


Blogger RetroVintageModStyle said ... (2:42 AM) : 

I agree that Botega along with Gucci & Versace were the best shows in Milan, the others weren't as good (they had only 1 or 2 good pieces. Great photos as always!


Blogger Yi said ... (2:44 AM) : 

I agree, the colours are really great. I love your blog, it's always very interesting!



Anonymous Lord Brummel said ... (2:51 AM) : 

You are right, Bottega Veneta was one of the best shows. I personnally liked also very much ZZegna, as it was at the same time luxury and daring, and a very strong statement for the brand. What did you think?


Anonymous George said ... (3:25 AM) : 

Very good. I don't often wear red (not nearly enough), but I could wear those.

But those lower pants have wrinkles in them. Surely that isn't intentional? Very slack.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:29 AM) : 

If I was a guy I would wear this


Blogger Simo said ... (3:36 AM) : 

Red trouve ca vraiment chic

it's a bit too much no?

Men in red - we can only hope, here in America.

Men in rumpled clothes - what's new about that?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:08 PM) : 

Tomas Maier is incredible! With the exception of last summer (I think it was, when he had those quite awful baggy pants that looked a little like overalls), he brings it home season after season! This season was no exception; my favourite men's designer working right now and has been for many years.



Blogger Saretta said ... (4:32 PM) : 

great! i love bottega veneta (and the sartorialist :P)


Blogger Pamcasso said ... (6:47 PM) : 

Bottega just gets better and better. Tomas Maier is amazing.


Blogger said ... (7:02 PM) : 

I agree 100%. Best show in Milan.


Blogger drivers22 said ... (9:02 PM) : 

In 1 word: awesome.
Loved almost every outfit of this collection, the earth hues, prints and patterns.

Agreed with Energie, the SS09 collection was a complete failure, I ended detesting all those baggy pants.

Check out more looks:


Anonymous Sophie, the Barton Girl said ... (1:50 PM) : 

Oh, YES, yesy, yes... a thousand times yes! Tomas Maier nearly systmeatically manages to come up with quietly but surely luxurious collections for both men and women.
I'm totally crazy about his understated take on casual glamour!


Blogger m. said ... (2:10 PM) : 

these knittered pants are gorgeous.
I want all men with such long and skinny legs to wear them.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:50 PM) : 

I was so surprised to find adoration for this most disappointing Maier show in years. Sorry to say, but it looks like deparment store, not design. Take a good look at that plain suit and baggy sweaters, not to mention the Abercrombie inspired cadet with the blue purse.

I've got multiple BV wide-legged pants from prior seasons - they look sensational and leave no doubt that I didn't buy them at a mass merchandizing outlet where I can find lots of baggy sweaters and tight profile pants, but from gifted, inspired designer.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:55 PM) : 

too right, a personal shopping preview - how divine. love the hair, very robert pattinson, yes? H.


Blogger Landis said ... (7:36 PM) : 

bottega, then hermes, then vuitton for sheer desire/wearability.

yasuhiro, owens, julius for sheer desire/internal conflict.

the eye needs to be pleased, then trained.

Cher Sartorialist,

J'adore Bottega Veneta et j'aime votre blog beaucoup trop. Je me sens folle, car je me trouve les yeux collées à l'écran!


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:34 AM) : 

on the bottom picture the back model with the suit, i love that the buttons and button holes continue up on either side of the lapels. the use of a pocket square in the bottom pocket is something i like and haven't seen. the pattern of the suit is also fantastic.
