Bottega Veneta - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) Tomas Maier is on a roll. His Fall 2009 collection for Bottega Veneta was as luxurious as it was practical, full of tweaked and chic-ed basics in the most luxurious fabrications possible. His silhouette was modelled after an opening envelope, an effect achieved most memorably in several loose charmeuse gowns that appeared to melt off the body. Seamed black day dresses and lean boucle cocktail frocks held up with a sliver of strap are the kind of items evert woman deserves, while the most exciting fashion moments came in the final gown story, which featured pale grey, cream and white pleated silk gowns, two of which were Grecian and knotted seductively at the neck. The result was breathtaking, reminding the audience how very few designers are able to endow a legendary Italian fashion house with modern ready-to-wear that moves spirits while moving on the sales floor.
