For Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta's resort collection is about a state of mind, and a bold one at that, as he sent out a lineup of effortlessly chic looks in saturated hues. Here, a color-blocked jersey top and leather skirt.
"Gather ye pleats while ye may" could be the tongue-in-cheek theme of the latest resort lineups as designers use those details on relaxed silhouettes. At Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier offers slouchy jackets paired with cropped pants. For Réyes, José Ramón Reyes keeps his looks similarly loose and chic, taking inspiration from Girl and Boy Scouts, with plenty of pleated shorts and pants and colorful bow blouses. On the other end of the spectrum, Peter Som takes his quirky girl on a trip to India. Opulent embroidery, layered-tier hems and a whimsical mix of fabrics adds up to an eclectic collection that juxtaposes feminine luxe and sporty ease.
