Bottega Veneta is one of the best fashion brands of the moment. Tomas Maier creates collections that are utterly desirable, beautifully classic, and he has helped to make Bottega Veneta one of the most exclusive fashion brands. Not exclusive in the way that they are hard to get (although the brand is not available in many retailers), but exclusive in that there aren’t sunglasses, perfumes, and cheap handbags bearing the Bottega Veneta label saturating the market. I have yet to buy anything from the recent collections (haven’t even bothered to check yet, but I am pretty sure there isn’t much available here in Vancouver), but it is definitely on my list. I would go for a cocktail dress in a muted jewel or nude/coffee/chocolate tone, or a leather coat.

and finally Autumn Winter 2008/2009, probably one of my favourite catwalk collections of all time.
