The 1960s have already proved to be a big trend in Milan, but Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier has somehow managed to make it look his own. Departing from the dark, sporty aesthetic he explored last season, the new collection was brimful of ladylike inspirations. Knee-skimming skirts, cardigans and boxy coats came in the shades of caramel, pink and orange, with beehive hair and t-bar heels forming a perfect finish to the retro silhouette. But while the cut of the garments might have appeared preppy, the fabric manipulations were far from conventional. A series of garments came with prints, which upon close inspection appeared to be tea stains, while others were overlaid with contrasting black net or strips of ripped lace.
