Bottega Veneta Resort 2016

Tomas Maier chose mood-lifting shades of pink, red, orange and blue and created relaxed, luxurious silhouettes for his resort collection.

For the most part, common sense guided Tomas Maier for resort, organizing the collection’s aesthetics within a pragmatic framework. “There’s a mood board, obviously, and a desire for color,” said the designer, who chose shades of pink, red, orange and blue. “Then there is the question of what a woman would need at that time of year.”

To Maier, the October-November delivery schedule requires mood-lifting color and light fabrics designed in silhouettes that bridge the runway seasons. That meant literally connecting the crazy dots of the fall runway, here distilled in more manageable abstract patchwork pleated skirts shown with chic, classic black V-necks and turtlenecks in ultralight, sheer viscose. There was a dressed-up, sporty ease to the Japanese fleece sweatshirts, track jackets and tailored pencil skirts, likewise the unlined pink shearling jacket over an orange turtleneck and loose pants. Almost everything was shown with flats: slip-on sneakers or chicly rustic embroidered sandals.

From a consumer perspective, Maier considers the runway almost a collection of collectors’ items — a client might buy one or two pieces, not full looks — but resort is “about clothes we would all wear every day,” he said.
