AFP/VOGUE – At Bottega Veneta, Matthieu Blazy’s day has come. It was a terrific runway: a clean break from the recent past, confident, wide-ranging, and significantly more interesting than these pictures suggest. The white tank top and jeans in look number one and the button-down and jeans of the look that followed? All made from leather.
The cropped flares were cut longer in front than in back, suggesting forward motion or speed, and the swooped backs of caban coats had a similar effect. Women will for sure go places in these tailored clothes. Their simplicity and honesty, not to mention their luxury, make them value propositions: identifiable with no expiration date.
Where the suiting was executed with precision, Blazy’s knitwear was more eclectic; shrunken patchwork sweaters had the charm of the handmade.
