Presenting: Fashion Week: Bottega Veneta S/S '08

Presenting: Milan Fashion Week: Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer Collection 2008

This Spring/Summer 2008, the House of Bottega Veneta, renown for its woven leather goods, despite updating its look, still staying true to its simplistic and minimalist tradition. The result: yet another timeless and classic collection for the S/S 2008 season. This S/S sees the house experimenting with more supple shapes like foldove and almost petal-like tops. Also, instead of using the Bottega Veneta's signature woven look for the whole bag, it utilises the signature weave in creating details that make swirly patterns (shown below). Apart from creating details, the brand also experiments with new shapes and styles of bags this season - the bucket-esque shopper, and Frame bags with expandable bottoms that when in its compressed state, looks rather like an accordion (see white Frame bag below). A definite conversation piece imho, as I've never seen a bag that is designed quite like that! Very novel indeed.

The Verdict: Kudos to Tomas Maier! A very well put together collection! Bagaholic Babe is absolutely loving Bottega Veneta's Collection for S/S '08. I've never been a fan of Bottega Veneta because their bags are too simple, but From what I've seen thus far from the designers that have shown their colelctions at Fashion Week, I think it's the best collection! Bottega Veneta Wins, hands down!

Bagaholic Babe loves the grey frame bag with pastel ombre woven details (2nd from bottom) and the bags with the swirly patterns (esp the pink foldover one with the petal-like top!) Perhaps the only bags I don't like from this collection are the (coincidentally) the tan and beige coloured ones...
