Only half way through winter and design houses and Savoir Faire are already thinking of what we are going to wear in Spring/Summer 2011? I know it seems a bit pre-mature for this, but hey we need something to keep our minds off the snow that is starting to accumulate outside! I am always impressed by the Italian's innate sense of style and their designers. One that always manages to impress is Bottega Veneta.
Now, I am not some young 20 year old, however there are certain elements from the 2011 Spring/Summer Collection which I would wear. Thomas Maier for Bottega Venata is taking us on a summer holiday filled with mixes of hyper casual and semi formal in outfits in a monochrome colour pallet.
The emphasis here is on a fine balance between technicality and refined technique mixed the ease and movement of athletic wear.
The ease of movement behind these super smart casual suits does not betray the fabulous tailoring that is lurking beyond those seams. They are classic and would suit any man who wears his clothes with confidence.
Even these are short shorts, the styling is brilliant, in a Indiana Jones meets Tarzan sort of way.
Although colours border on shades you might find in camouflage wear, they are just right when presented as a whole.
Definitely something to translate into our everyday style!
