During his tenure at Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier has worked to consistently evolve the brand's age-old legacy of exquisitely executed handcraft. To complement the house's iconic woven leathers, he's experimented with hand-painted textiles, bricolaged patch-works, and artfully haphazard pleating details yielding stunning results.
Resort '14 proved no exception, as Maier presented an assortment that was at once perfectly suited for a mid-January jaunt to the French Caribbean, and chock-full of masterful technique. Crisp poplin fabrics informed the behavior of his 50's-silhouette skirts and culotte/Bermuda short hybrids, while airy slips in painterly textural-prints were cut to hover at knee length, finally giving rest to the maxi dress (Real Housewives be damned).
Styling was simple and to the point; pick a frock, pair it with a brogue or raffia-spectatored loafer, add an ombre stained bag--and go! How refreshingly simple!
