Bottega Veneta

Happily, I surprised to see this collection infused with color and then on the other hand, I am perplexed with who is the target customer for these wildly overpriced creations. Some of the clothes were pretty, some were pretty ugly, some arty, some artsy craftsy, some prim bordering on matronly and then some downright trashy. There is some sort of undercurrent in the collection that is reminiscent o




f a Prada collection with some very unflattering colors and some very unappealing silhouettes leading me to believe that Miuccia had some sway in the inspiration department. Mr. Maier is like Ms. Prada when it comes to the esoteric “inspirations” which once again leads us to the same destination ...ugly clothes.
