Roving Reporter : Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta (BV) followed suit with its fashion counterparts this season by presented a collection that avoided too many eye popping colours. 
There was plenty of monochrome, salmon, caramel and lavender shades that created a calming collection of dresses and outerwear, in fact there were no trousers at all!

I love this salmon colour trench. There were loads of great coats in the collection both black and white, but this tie waist trench was by far my favourite! It had quite a sexy spy feel! Love the styling too. This is a great colour to team with mahogany booties and lady like handbag!

There is a great balance in this outfit. The skirt fabric is much heavier than the top which allows it to drape beautifully over the hips. There has been a lot of styles on the catwalk similar to the top here, with the use of chiffon in the strap details, showing that this is a look likely to filter down to the high-street. Again we see a slight mismatch on colour, which shows we are going to be moving away from this matchy-matchy palette of past seasons.
Check out the embellished bag too!

Velvet has been seen everywhere from London to NYC and now we have it in Milan too. It has to be said that velvet is not the easiest or fabrics to wear, so it's great that BV have used it with other fabrics in a panelling system. The style here almost borrows from last years 'bandage' dress look, but far more grown up! Love the gladiator boots too!

There is quite a flappers theme going on here. BV do great simple, but well cut pieces. There is nothing fussy about this little shift, a great alternative to the LBD, this little, embellished number is so Natalie Portman!

There was a host of beautiful, floor length dresses too. Perfect red carpet numbers, the tailored cut, has panels and seams in all the right places to make these dresses so superbly flattering! An amazing neckline too, I can see Angeline Jolie in one of BV's full on frocks.

A very calming selection of clothes that shine through because of their versatility and cut.
