Bottega Veneta Women's Fall-Winter 2011/2012

Tomas Meier's designs for the Bottega Veneta's Fall/Winter collection feature knee-length skirts, trim little cardigans, sleeveless shifts and sparkling jewelry. Exciting is that Maier used unexpected fabrics, like pilly wool or densly woven yarn. He was very adventurous with suface treatments, like tea-staining and real and virtual lace embellishments.

To quote Mr Maier: "Juxtaposing clean lines with elaborate surfaces, it aims not for balance but for a synthesis of unlike elements, with each refined piece of clothing and relaxed accessory containing within it a wealth of detail, technique, and embellishment". 

Well I simply love it.

And the black and white sketch:



  1. Thank you! I so love all the colours this Fall! The mustard yellows, greens, oranges, purples, reds and turquoise blue.
