Lauren Hutton Makes a Runway Return to Celebrate Bottega Veneta’s Fiftieth Anniversary
Bottega Veneta celebrated its fiftieth anniversary with a show that pulled out all the stops. This season, creative director Tomas Maier debuted a super luxe SS17 collection with the help of a smash hit cast of models. From Guinevere Van Seenus, to Bella Hadid and her sister Gigi, Pat Cleveland’s daughter Anna and Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, the casting crossed both generations and genres of modeling. However the show was truly stolen by the legendary Lauren Hutton, who strolled out in a trench coat and a smile. It was a nod to both Hutton and the brand’s history – her look was a tribute to an outfit she wears in 1980 film American Gigolo, complete with the red ‘intrecciato’ clutch bag which Bottega is bringing back from the archives.
We saw coats with collars in Bottega’s signature woven leather, in various shades of black and brown. Skirts and dresses also came in bright daring pink, scarlet, and yellow leather. The collection was ruled by immaculate tailoring, an array of warm colors, and the most perfect pastel hues of pink, blue, and lime green. A collection that truly embodies luxury, in every sense of the word!
