Highly stylised animal and camouflage prints opened the show at Bottega Veneta which, together with the wood panelling backdrop and runway, firmly placed the scene in the great outdoors. The browns, greens and blacks of the clothes were lifted with pops of red and mauve and the use of knits and suede. Our favourite feature was the use of cord as embellishment and designer Tomas Maier used the utilitarian item in a surprisingly artful way as straps on gowns or to create gathers, as drawstrings and patterns.
