Bottega Veneta showcases Men's Fall-Winter 2013-14 collection
January 14, 2013: Precise, proper, streamlined and sharp, Bottega Veneta’s Fall-Winter 2013-14 collection for men brings sleek black and charcoal greys into fashion yet again.
The palette is deep and rich, comprised of black, dark shades of blue, gray, and plum, and touches of cool green and muted bronze. Adhering to the Bottega design philosophy, patterns are subtle and small, add depth and a hint of animation to the seemingly austere hues. Understated, the collection is made of lightweight wool flannel, cashmere, worsted wool, and wool-and-cashmere blend, as well as fine, supple leathers, all combined in unusual ways. Jerseys and other knits also figure prominently, put to unexpected uses as a shirt collar or the front of a shirt.
Sportswear, such as parkas and paddock jackets, are interpreted with the formal shapeof suits, constructed of suiting fabrics and paired with gilets and dress shirts. Sharply tailored flannel suits and jackets of mixed materials are worn with tone-on-tone patterned shirts and patterned ties.
Bags have a formal attitude with an emphasis on functionality. Shoes are classic with loafers, buckled boots, and lace-up ghillies, many constructed from intricate combinations of leather, crocodile, and suede. Creative Director Tomas Maier, has crafted a collection for the smart suited businessman, who knows how to work effectively without intimidating!
