For Spring-Summer 2011, Bottega Veneta continues its exploration of the space in a man’s wardrobe between casual and formal.
The collection is breezy but focused, balanced between the technical rigor of athletic apparel and the refined technique of classically tailored men’s wear.
The silhouette is boxy and fluid, with cropped jackets and full, pleated pants that taper at the ankle or fall, full and roomy, to the hem.
A shirt jacket, beautifully constructed and as soft as a t-shirt, illustrates the gentle side of tailoring.
The palette is broad and intricate, starting with deep, rich shades of celeste blue, vermilion red, camp green, black, and white. Lighter, tonal gradations of these colors – now empire, carmine, and turf – weave their way through the clothes, along with soft woody shades of brown and beige and the occasional shot of absinthe.
