Pretty effFLY FOR A _____ GUY: Bottega Veneta

When one thinks of "Menswear", what comes to mind? Slacks, suiting, tailored fits, masculine maybe? Sure! But let's not forget the texture, leather, classic suiting, splashes of color and Bottega Veneta. Bringing back our Pretty effFLY For A _______ Guy trend, Veneta gave me all that I love in menswear.

Fashion Writer, Tim Blanks gave us his review/scoop on Veneta's inspiration for this collection. Ry Cooder's music for Paris, Texas is practically the loneliest sound in the world. That made it an appropriate intro for Tomas Maier's new collection, in which he imagined a man on a road trip to rediscover a country he'd spent too much time flying over. The scenario offered the designer a golden opportunity to develop his signature blend of the hyper-casual and the super-formal, and he made the most of it.

But things really came into their own with a series of monochrome outfits in maroon, petrol blue, and olive green, especially a coat, pants, top, and intrecciato tote, all in the same military shade. Maier found his models all over the place, from L.A. to B.A. (as in Buenos Aires), and their sensual polymorphisms perfectly suited the road-trip theme—a valuable reminder of how much casting can add to a show.

    The suits are tight, the jackets are something I would wear and the colors are on point. I would buy

    I wish I could go to Milan fashion week. I love all of these looks especially the grey sweatpants. I also love his woman's line. Did you see it?
