The best of understated Italian elegance
Italian luxury label, Bottega Veneta is in New York to showcase its fall/winter 2018 collection and also to celebrate the opening of the five-story Maison flagship. The recent fall/winter 2018 fashion show sees Bottega Veneta transforming the American Stock Exchange Building into a cosy, chic-luxury apartment. The stunning set is complete with a fireplace, easy chairs and elegant dining room, as models parade down the runway, clad in pajamas and sipped wine.
Bottega Veneta showcased its fall/winter 2018 couture line-up with 65 models starring in the collection and parading down the runway shows in different looks. Headlined by supermodels Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid, actresses Priyanka Chopra and Julianne Moore sat front row, Moore making it a fashion hat trick after attending Tom Ford and Tory Burch.
The fall/winter 2018 collection was very sleek, sophisticated and luxurious – a masterclass in understated European elegance at the expense of headline-grabbing bling with not a puffer coat in sight.
There were silk pajamas in sumptuous jewel colours worn under exquisitely tailored winter coats. There was animal print and patchworks of colour blocks, yet it was never gaudy, never kitsch. It was an explosion of colour; warm tones for winter, yellow, red and orange, with pointy ankle boots and a copious amount of bags to highlight a mainstay of the brand’s global business empire.
Tory Burch, the doyenne of preppy chic meets boho insouciance, showcased breezy optimism in a field of pink carnations for a post-#MeToo world. The stunning set transformed a space under a flyover into a field of 14,000 flowers sprouting from springy moss, light streaming through the windows and the Chamber Orchestra of New York playing Vivaldi. The fall/winter 2018 collection was romantic, whimsical and partly inspired by Lee Radziwill, the 84-year-old indomitable American socialite and younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
