STREAMLINED SENSE OF PURPOSE
Step into fall with a spring in your step as this season’s menswear collections from Gucci, Biasa, Bottega Veneta and Saint Laurent offer the full range of autumn essentials from the perfectly tailored funky suit to the sporty sneaker. Bottega Veneta’s look gets down to business with a strong urban flair and an air of seriousness. The silhouette is sharp and close to the body, every seam perfectly stitched, every detail refined to its functional minimum. The season’s new bags are clearly intended for work, with a formal attitude and an emphasis on functionality. Shoes are classic in concept and constructed from intricate combinations of leather, crocodile and suede. Creative Director Hedi Slimane keeps Saint Laurent in true rock star form with skinny pants and distressed, street smart accessories, the ultimate recipe for paired back sophistication.
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
At once considerably informal and precisely polished, this season’s autumn looks for women are all about accentuating the shape of your body. Discovering the unexpected through intricate construction and deliberate lines, the silhouette emphasises volume and the overall look is quite transformative, providing the ultimate personal experience. Bottega Veneta offers contrast with a palette that is dark and decisive; colours include black, slate, smoke and pearl white; and, as if by accident, are offset by vibrant red, yellow and curry. “The collection is all about proportion, precision, ease, and the single beauty of the material,” says Creative Director Tomas Maier. Offering a sensual edge to Gucci’s stiletto inspired shoes and Bottega Veneta’s conservative lines, Saint Laurent mixes things up with glossy clutches perfect for an unforgettable night on the town.
