Surprise yourself, between refinement and minimalism, the 2023-2024 winter season of Bottega Veneta is a creative explosion

Bottega Veneta's fall/winter 2023-2024 collection presented at Milan Fashion Week 2023 was many things: a mix of opposites that follow a common intention, closing the exploration of the Italian trilogy, consolidating the statement of Bottega Veneta, which once again time it has shown that it has found its very clear dimension that goes from the refinement of the materials and to amaze. It is no coincidence that the name of the collection is Little Wonder and, as Matthieu Blazy explained, its essence is inspired by the effect that a parade can give us: β€œA parade: the alchemy of the street lies in the difference; who will you meet? What's around the corner? Who will amaze you? It's the surprise of the meeting that matters” . Artistic references, outfits where design, fashion and aesthetics merge, a collection that must be worn and lived consciously.

Bottega Veneta: past, present and future, a collection that spans time

The marketing and creative need disagreement that has been gripping the fashion rooms for a while also emerged some time ago, when Daniel Roseberry, creative director of Schiaparelli, underlined how much freedom of creative flow was a fundamental, necessary ingredient in the maison's vision in fashion as in life.

Matthieu Blazy, creative director of Bottega Veneta seems to take up this discourse, but does it in his own way, presenting an autumn-winter 2023-2024 collection that is almost a reflection on the fashion that exists, was and what is to come . Thus between the Corridori di Ercolano , a Roman copy from the 1st century BC of a pair of Greek statues found in the Villa dei Papiri in Ercolano and the futurist sculptures by Boccioni, a time gap opens up which sees the woven bucket bags that we know well and the bag new in like the rope handbags or the leather shopper bags that exactly recall the shape of the envelopes we use for purchases. Also in this case the taste, the elegance, the precious choice of the material approaches an object of common use in a refined way.

Tank top+jeans, evergreen, boots, knitted socks, the elegant work jumpsuit

Super downloaded look since its first appearance on the catwalk, white tank top + jeans that opened and closed the Bottega Veneta show, remains an undisputed trademark and a look that in autumn combined with a cardigan, a long leather jacket or a classic peacoat is back again for next winter.

Bottega Veneta pushes this feeling of comfort zone even further and comes to offer the typically winter knitted sock in an ankle boot version: could there ever be a more refined slipper-like shoe than this? The working-class jumpsuit also stands out, revisited in an elegant version for both him and her in an English-style, dynamic and enveloping texture.
