Runway - Bottega Veneta: Fall 2008

Bottega Veneta is known for their exquisitely tailored suits made with gorgeous material and an iconic pointed shoulder – which they continued in their Fall show – but they started out this season a bit differently.

Baggy, oversized, generic, bland, and uniform-like … but in a good way.

The fit and minimalism are obvious, but I think the true key to making these outfits avant-garde is their color tone: bland, bland, dusty, dull, and bland.

…but in a good way.

Outfits like these are great because they say “I’m unique and fashionable, but there is a good chance I might actually be straight.” These ensembles are easy to wear, yet they create no doubt that you’re unique.
