Though I really appreciate Maier's playfulness with Bottega Veneta, I feel that he hasn't given it a solid look that describes the brand, in fact, his not always favourable experimentation has become something I expect from him, therefore, when the show opened with these domestic floral dresses that I'd expect from the current Rochas, I was quite underwhelmed.
His personality did come through starting with the fringed dresses which were cleverly taut on the bodice and let loose on the skirt (though I feel like we had something that looked similar previously from him) and the mixtures of fabrics and embellishments that came afterwards.
It is not a memorable collection, and I think I only fully appreciated the black dresses with the leather parts about the neck.
NB: This is the first collection I've seen outside of New York to show that broad 40's shoulder.

This is quite different from what I've expected of Bottega, I don't know what to think. It's very tapestry looking, particularly in the first few dresses. I think the best looks are in the middle section, particularly the folded skirt dresses and the fringed bodice dresses. Otherwise, there's an excess of information in the dresses that makes the collection as a whole fall flat.

Great show.
Very intimist. Great details, accessories (those bags and shoes).
Daria Strkous dress is prefect. The stand out of the colection!

i'm a bit tired of the basket weave bags

close up looks and shoes spoke the truth

_heavy & non-elegant_

I really like some of the cuts and prints (boxier tops with narrow skirts, or those gathered floral dresses), but at times it gets a bit too busy (the fringes, jewels, etc). Still, it's quietly romantic at times, almost in a WWII, 1940s way.

Wow, this is gorgeous I'm glad he went the romantic route instead of the edgy route he tends to go. Reminds me a lot of the spring 2009 collection, in terms of color and prints and how it's got a homespun spin to it. Love the 30's dresses and the accessories are amazing as always.

Its "pretty". Now its up to you to take it as an insult or a compliment.
