Bottega Veneta announces that, starting from 2017, the house will present its collections with two annual combined women’s and men’s fashion shows, respectively for the Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer seasons, held during the February and September Milan women’s fashion weeks.
This decision represents a natural evolution following the combined Spring/Summer 2017 fashion show, which was held in September 2016 at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan and presented both women’s and men’s collections in celebration of Tomas Maier’s 15th anniversary as Creative Director of Bottega Veneta and the 50th anniversary of the house since its foundation in Vicenza, in the Veneto region of Italy.
The Bottega Veneta universe is built on both genders. As a consequence, showing both women and men together is an organic move that follows the evolution of Tomas Maier’s creative vision.
The house remains in any case committed to a presentation timing and production launch that allows the period necessary to create a sophisticated handcrafted collection that conveys a dream even before it hits the boutiques.
