This spring, Bottega Veneta takes surface and hand as the starting points for an exuberant romp through extraordinary materials, unusual finishes, and exaggerated prints. The palette is vivid and saturated, centered on lush shades of tourmaline, dark denim, and indigo. Blood red, Irish green, burnt orange, plaster, and chocolate brown heighten the vibrant mood. The silhouette is architecturally rigorous but sensuous, a combination of tailored angles and fluid lines that keep close to the body. Shapes are illusory, with layers of fabric altering the apparent line of a dress or skirt so that a first glance leads to a second look.
