The Spring 2022 collection takes inspiration from Detroit, the venue for the collection, while also launching Firehouse - a curated retail space of artworks, publications and music by Detroit-ians
October 25, 2021: Nothing is ever ‘unlikely’ anymore in the new world we live in. Who ever thought that the worlds of fine luxury and hard industrialization could never meet, should see the new Salon 03 collection by Bottega Veneta.
A genius interpretation of the two worlds by Creative Director Daniel Lee, Bottega Veneta dabbles with puffs, poufs, glitter and green to deliver a collection that will appeal to the daring fashionistas among us.
American sportswear and workwear is combined with Italian know-how to express a sense of individualism and freedom. A celebration of industry, engineering and revolution runs throughout in the form of metal yarn. A fabric is wired with innovative metal thread so the shape of garments can be manipulated. Ideas of proportion and structure are challenged where clothing can be squashed and crushed.
A focus on technicality and function, meets modern, liberated glamour. The dominant theme of soft and functional is seen through toweling fabric across the collection where recycled rubber yarn is woven. Parkas, too, are re-interpreted, woven with metallic yarns, to create new volumes.
Rubbery yarn pieces on parkas and dresses, beads and paillettes on skirts and dresses and shells - all add to the surface interest. The rubber beads and paillettes are bio-based and sustainable. The rubbery yarn is biodegradable. The nylon used in the collection is recycled while the cottons are certified organic.
The bag collection plays with the iconic codes of Bottega Veneta: the tire Boot, the Triangle, and tactile materials. Bottega Veneta classics have been revisited in a new way with industrial and mechanical inspired metal pieces. The articulated, engineered cassette bag offers strength and structure. The signature Bottega Veneta Intrecciato pattern has been reproduced on textile.
Bright shades merge with neutrals to present a perfect collection that marries convenience with style, and innovation with a simple thought of preservation.
