Bottega Veneta presents Men's Spring Summer 2014 collection
June 24, 2013: For Spring-Summer 2014, Bottega Veneta presents a tailored collection that explores the effects of visual contradiction. The possibilities of balance and proportion play out through the overall form, for a look that is clean, contemporary, and precise.
A new silhouette illustrating the refined techniques of tailoring and shirting juxtaposes a full top, emphasized by a prominently sloped shoulder and generous sleeve, with a narrow pant that is slim from the hip down.
The palette incorporates both refined neutrals and saturated colors. Black, various tones of grey, milk white, and papyrus white, as well as deep aubergine, admiral blue and military green define this collection. Patterns are of varying intensities, appearing in the form of checks, broken checks and windowpane checks.
Materials are lightweight and straightforward, ranging from cottons, gabardines and twills, in addition to leathers, including supple suede and glossy calf. Whether they are smooth or textured, they always carry a masculine attitude.
The Brera bag, in Madras Sfumato, a type of leather which has a deep rooted heritage with Bottega Veneta as the brand’s first signature, is added to the men’s collection. The Brera has versatility as well as functionality, offering double handles, and five practical compartments. Lace ups, loafers and slip ons, in either the style of the Gondoliere shoe or a Moroccan slipper are featured in dark, rich mono as well as two-tone colourways.
