Bottega Veneta presents Men's Fall-Winter 2014/2015 collection
January 16, 2014: For Fall-Winter 2014/2015, Bottega Veneta presents a collection marked by ease and informality. As expected from the house, the clothes have sophistication, thanks to the use of luxurious materials, detailed construction and a subtly refined yet softly tailored silhouette.
Subdued neutrals dominate the palette. There are various tones of greys and greens, as well as paler neutrals such as sand and mist. For touches of colour, there is dark aubergine, a burned red and chartreuse.
In terms of materials, calf suede, lambskin and shearling appear in various incarnations. Woolens and knits in various gauges include cashmere, camelhair, flannels and English double-faced wools. At times the woolens are patterned that appear in traditional muted tones concurrently with untraditional colour combinations. Coats are reversible; one side might be patterned, the other solid, making them versatile enough to go from weekday to weekend.
The silhouette as a whole is shaped by the pant, which is given an ‘active’ shape through its tapered leg and ribbed cuff, while constructed in expected as well as unexpected materials, including leather, flannel, suede or double-faced wool; always capped with a looser top.
Meticulously crafted accessories appear on the casual side to compliment the look. The bag is a softly structured cross-body satchel with a wide strap and generous flap, in either waxed leather or washed ostrich skin. Shoes are rugged and masculine, some with metal hardware, lending a robust completion to the overall silhouette.
