Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2010

The latest Bottega Veneta offering was wildly eclectic. There were preppy varsity jackets, trousers and suits with loud print patterns, bright pink/orange and pastel colours and handsome double breasted jackets with wide-peaked lapels* and roped shoulders**.

*Wide peaked lapel

The wide-peak lapel has a v-shape where the lower portion of the lapel extends past the collar area. Compare with notched-lapel, lower image.

**Roped shoulders.
This is an extreme roped shoulder; Note how the sleeve area extends up above the shoulder.

  1. Oh lord. That last picture looks like the bastard child of camicia spalla and roping... they don't look very good together.
