Given that I ll wear lots of the stuff here but yes it’s just...Bunch of pretty clothes. There’s no punch here whatsoever.

But do BV clothes really sell anyways?

^No really but as far as I know their footwear is doing good in recent years..

He never changes his 1950's-mad-men aesthetics on womenswear but I like it somehow, just too many designers are doing 70's vibe.

RTW only represent 3% of their sales (men & women combined) according to their 2016 results. That is quite low for a billion dollars brand. Hermès for example has a stronger RTW business.
All the luxury brands in Kering have a much stronger RTW business.

Gucci’s RTW represent 13% of their sales and YSL, 23%.

Looking at their collections, it’s not difficult to understand why.

What Facchinetti did for Tod’s could have been more relevant for a brand like BV.

I thought last season was a hot mess so this is a slight improvement for me, if not only for the restraint which I think works much better for a Bottega Veneta collection. But I agree with everyone else, there is little excitement left for this brand.

And it's a shame to see how little their RTW sells, I had no idea!

BV used to be very fashion forward. I think it can go back to that. He really needs to ditch the co-ed shows. As time goes on it's becoming more and more irrelevant. That was never the case previously. He just really needs to go back to basics and give us the BV we all know and love. Unfortunately this isn't it.
