What a dark summer we're having! But this is so gorgeous, it's so feminine and delicate (as always) yet strong and melancholic.
The clashing prints are done so well here, complimenting each other instead of being messy. And the same can be said for the materials. I especially love the sheer sweater and cardigan.
This is how you incorporate over the top details while still managing to keep it wearable and nice looking.
What a strange collection for Spring Summer! I like it but for some reason it reminds me of Prada from the early 2000's. Even the runway brought back memories of those shows.
Horrible collection, for god what happened with Tomas?
dark and feminine...love it :heart:
a bit dark for a SS collection but absolutely amazing
Disappointing collection after the last two amazing ones, particularly the glorious F/W 2012. I find the flower print a little too sweet and twee. However, as always with Maier's clothes, I feel that they will grow on me in due course. I do like the appliqued vests worn over shirts, the black dresses and the cut out dresses, like the one on Marine.
Looks 10-13 in post #11 are really nice :blush:, the rest is just average...
really beautiful and well done, my fav milan show so far I have to say. I love how feminine and chic everything looks
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.
