Every other runway collection I posted about seems bent on standing out. Simply put, troubled times means less spending, and so you’ve got to be very different/unique/special to stand out and secure that purchase.
Tomas Maier on the other hand, had a very different perspective. ‘People like clothes they can collect and wear for years’, he says, and honestly that makes a lot of sense as well. By making timeless pieces, customers will be more inclined to buy Bottega Veneta, knowing that it will not be a seasonal one-off purchase.
And so the Spring-Summer 2009 Bottega Veneta collection sells it like it is. Timeless classics dressed up with braided leathers and exotic skins presented in a wide palette of warm hues. There was also a large variety of bag types on show, from satchels, to totes, clutches and shoulder bags, one for every woman depending on what she liked. Very sensible indeed.
