Tomas Maier’s vision for its Bottega Veneta Cruise 2012 collection is double-sided. Instead of thinking of the cruise as the ultimate “going on vacation in the winter” collection he also thought about it as an urban collection. Inspired by the frescoes of Tiepolo and Veronese, Maier used shades of yellow, peach, and mint green, mixed in a graphic way. Luxury houses, especially those that have a history have this challenge to always modernize themselves without loosing either their identity but also the house’s tradition. This is why the designer wanted to use futuristic elements on the accessories such as the black rubber with aluminum embellishments but also a type of silk leather that the Italian house used in the seventies. Bottega Veneta is also launching his first resort collection for men, which will be available for sale next week.
