The purchasing team of Santa Eulalia went to Milan to not miss the Bottega Veneta catwalk. As expected the collection met our expectations. For the upcoming Spring-Summer 2011 the Italian firm offers a sophisticated and sporty collection very consistent with what we are used to.
The explorer look remains trendy and blue, white and olive green are the colours that dominate both in trousers, jackets, shorts and shirts. The monochromatic combinations are very common in the Bottega Veneta collections. But above all we must mention the comfort of their garments, very light and made in washed cotton.
Another thing worth mentioning is the accessories, a strong point of the firm. This collection includes a number of shoulder bags and bags of different shapes, types of leather and colours. New this season is the combination of smooth leather with crocodile skin in the shoulder bags. However, plaited leather remains a constant and is found again in wallets, shoulder bags and briefcases in grey and greens.
In footwear, we have gone for the gladiator sandals and “desert boots” that appear to be a hit next summer.
