MILAN FASHION WEEK HIGHLIGHTS, FEB 23

Bottega Veneta
Breathtaking origami-folded panels, pagoda shoulders, and kimono elements suggested a strong Asian reference to Tomas Maier's F/W 2013 collection. A-line and hourglass silhouettes complemented the details beautifully, with black, ivory, lipstick red, and goldenrod as the main colors. There was also an organic feel in the collection with the presence of multiple lapels that overlapped each other on the coats which suggested the petals of a flower, raw edges on some of the outfits, and also the black chiffon appliqu├ęs reminiscent of tree sticks.
