“Loose, casual, easy, breezy.” Those four words were how Tomas Maier succinctly summed up his casually chic collection during the showroom appointment. With Kering’s backing, Maier has impressively expanded the vocabulary for his own label (he is also the creative director of Bottega Veneta), building on his idea of effortless clothes with interesting new fabrics and tropical foliage prints.
The lineup of men’s and women’s clothes and accessories was tightly edited and coherent. A relaxed boyfriend poplin cotton shirt, for example, was paired with a pleated palm print skirt, which Maier chose to show alongside a male model in a bleached cotton piqué polo shirt and poplin shorts. These, and the rest of the looks in hues like blush pink, linden green and a soft blue, evoked a carefree spirit, a notion underscored by materials like an ultrasoft denim fleece cozy enough for a chilled summer night.
