Creative director Tomas Maier told Style.com that the Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 collection is about "technology and handicrafts coming together." While last season's collection was clearly influenced by the 1960s, the Spring collection was rooted in luxe streetwear and urban clothing.
The Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 collection, as always, featured the most luscious looking, lust-worthy bags (in ostrich or glazed crocodile skin, no less) to come down the runways in Milan.
Few collections are as closely associated with glamor and luxury as Bottega Veneta, and the Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 collection reminded audiences and fashion lovers around the world just why that is. Sophistication was fused with bursts of color and even panels of mesh, and the result was clothing that is ultimately wearable and elegant.
