On Its Spring 2018 Runway, Bottega Veneta’s Bags Were Uncommonly Creative Franch Replica Handbags

The brand known for its staid aesthetic and craftsmanship mixed it up in fine fashion in Milan

It feels as though whenever I write about a new Bottega Veneta collection, I talk about how steady the brand is. And that’s absolutely true; Tomas Maier has been at Bottega’s helm since 2001, and in that time he’s put together an aesthetic universe of quiet elegance that manages to be enormously luxurious while still acknowledging that its customers have regular lives that generally require them to go to the office instead of wiling away their days on a yacht or at a charity luncheon. In its Spring 2018 collection, Bottega stays true to that form, but the brand also does something I wasn’t totally expecting: it has a lot of fun.

In recent seasons, Bottega has largely stuck to neutrals and muted tones, and while spring doesn’t exactly edge into brights, it does include some vivid shades of green, purple and blue, as well as jewel-embellished day bags and checkerboard intrecciato leather that feels a little risky while still staying decidedly within the Bottega universe. Personalized and monogrammed bags also play a big role in this collection, in both painted and leather-appliqued form. There was also plenty of the classics, though, so this BV collection is likely to gain wide appreciation among shoppers. Check out all the bags from the collection below.

In 2001 Bottega Veneta was obtained by Gucci Group, today Kering, which enabled the brand to expand to other production venues including ready-to-wear, shoes, eyewear, house products and luggage. After the acquisition, Bottega Veneta started cooperating with celebrated photographers like Nan Goldin, Nick Knight and Annie Leibovitz to make enticing advertising campaigns.To solidify their devotion to Italian crafting, Bottega Veneta opened a college to train prospective leather craftsmen. Bottega Veneta’s tasteful and distinctive awareness of brand identity have made it a leading luxury brand.Reliability is most likely an underrated attribute, both in individuals and in vogue brands. Seasonal flash is fun and also merry-go-round of imaginative influences in a new is intriguing, but if it comes down to it, the accessories which most women (and men, progressively) desire are only functional and beautifully made. In Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier has been making bags that are exactly that, and he proceeds–with a couple small tweaks–for Pre-Fall 2017, which only debuted.The collection’s totes are all still noticeably, clearly Bottega Veneta, but many of them are a little more slight than Bottega bags have been around the past several years. The totes particularly cut a thinner profile, and the collection adds several new micro bags that are small in a sense Bottega’s day bags haven’t been in the past. That’s in keeping with an overarching industry fad, clearly, but it is also in line with the collection’s sparer proportions generally. Check out all of the luggage in the lookbook below.
