Bottega Veneta's Sensually Abstract Beauty

Godfrey Deeny
September 24th, 2011 @ 10:46 AM - Milan

What do you get when you add architectural rigor, great workmanship and beautifully made clothes to a fresh sense of femininity and an elegantly sexy attitude? You get a great spring 2012 collection from Bottega Veneta, whose stellar show presented Saturday morning, Sept. 24, was a truly unique fashion moment.

Ever since 2002, when creative director Tomas Maier took control, Bottega Veneta has been one of the must-see shows in Milan, though much of that was due to the designer's inventive accessories and special ability to use BV's famed Venetian atelier to create innovative clothes. This show marked a new level for Maier, with its sense of exuberance, beautiful color palette, sensual shapes, shimmering surfaces and remarkable mixtures of textures and fabrics.

Take the opening series, almost luscious looking cocktail corset dresses in printed polyester and micro accordion pleats, or the structured stucco gabardine PVC dresses with exterior illustrations.

Maier did pick up on the biggest Milan trend of the current season - Art Deco graphics - but filtered this through his canny imagination so the look was more like African tribal designs, and the results were several great arty embroidered dresses. Another unique skill of Maier's is to make clothes that somehow shimmer and undulate ever so slightly on the body, adding more sensuality to the whole look. No wonder the models clearly liked wearing the outfits - they all looked so beautifully poised.

The designer also mixed in some snazzy sportswear looks - chocolate Napa leather jackets over dark violet jeans with painterly stains, a combo completed by an artist's mistress mega scarf. It was one of many great "first date" looks in this show, since the clothes while highly flattering were also exactly the sort of outfits any gent would hope his date would show up wearing.

The highpoint of this show, staged in BV's high-tech headquarters in south Milan, were a series of multi-fabric volcanic red frocks in printed jacquard and fiery reds that were technically brilliant yet almost organic in the way the ensemble looked so natural. Few collections anywhere now look so skillful as those by Maier, whose style manages never to be trapped by any obvious historical references, while expressing the unique qualities of an Italian atelier at the top of its game.

"It's not meant to be about any era, just working with my team in a very free way to express something special and new," the ever shy Maier told editors backstage.

By definition, fashion critics are obliged to make instant judgements about the immediate success, relevance and trendiness of any collection. When, of course, one needs to time to truly judge what is the defining collection of any season, just as the greatest films or buildings or paintings are those that stand the test of time, rather than gain instant acclaim. In that sense, let us hazard a guess that when fashion historians come to evaluate spring 2012, today's Bottega Veneta collection will be the one that best expresses modern chic, best captures what is cool. It was really that good.
