\n\nYou know, it honestly took me a while to warm up to athleisure. The idea of wearing sneakers with a chic outfit rather than heels just didn’t cut it for me. In hindsight, that may have more to do with my height than my global sense of fashion propriety. But just as I am cozying up to the idea…whoosh, it’s taking it’s departure.\n\n

\n\nTomas Maier of Bottega Veneta is making that clear with his Resort 2017 collection of prim, proper, and well-tailored looks. Tracksuits are traded in for bright, vintage-inspired skirt suits. The collection had an air of Edward Scissorhands – the 60’s silhouettes, the monochromatic popping bright colors, the emphasis on heavy fabrics and exact tailoring. Skirt lengths are all the same – just below the knee, and level of propriety has an old(e) English feel.\n\n

\n\nAn interlude of a jersey gown and grey tweed-esque crepe evening looks with minuscule pops of coral and raspberry in one square neck dress as well as a plunge neck with empire waist and pops of coral, blue, and green are absolute perfection.\n\n

\n\nThe collection ends with two pastel fur robe coats, which, why not? Spring 2016 brought back duster coats. Why not take the house coat to a full on robe in public? Especially if it’s pastel pink with stripes. For as serious and proper as this collection started, it ended squarely and heavily on the opposite spectrum, and I have to admit, I laughed. It does look quite cozy.\n\n \n\n

  1. Completely in love with the colors and the fabrics. The idea of a jersey gown is terrific! They way they completed many of the looks with Mary Janes gives even more that 60’s vibe. Great post 🙂
