Spring 2013 Milan Fashion Week: Bottega Veneta

- By Andrea Mestrovic -

It is the season of the dress – according to the faultless Bottega Veneta  lead creator, Tomas Maier.  For Spring/Summer 2013, Maier designed a collection jam-packed with the celebrated one piece, and yet there was enough frenzy for every one of his zealous aficionados.

The show opened with a grouping of 1940s soft-shoulder, short-sleeve tea dresses in muted reds and pinks – a most delicious blush color palette.  Then the tune changed and Maier’s legendary subversive glamour emerged with seductive fringed corset dresses, studded skirts, and point d’esprit cardigans tucked into decorous bead-embellished skirts.   “There are many different ways a woman can present herself,” said the designer backstage after the show.  He also cited fluidity as a source of desire; all his pieces, even the laser-cut appliquéd dresses, gently hugged the body, allowing for a slight trace of curvy silhouettes to show through, suggestively.

For a brand that is celebrated for its persuasive accessories, Bottega Veneta once again shocks and delights with a whole new purpose for a thin sachel-esque clutch –  carried as such despite the straps, which essentially work to  add dimension and  complexity.

Tough and sweet is how Maier describes his Spring/Summer 2013 collection, and isn’t that what we all desire?
