Milan Report: Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2011

Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier is German by birth, works for an Italian company, and lives in Miami. His peripatetic ways have made him the kind of designer who strives to make clothes that are as comfortable and functional as they are handsome and put-together. So instead of a regular, well-tailored suit, he'll give you one in rumpled cotton that's light as paper. His knits are laid back but always done in colors that stand out. And his outerwear is so damn good that even if you lost your luggage, you'd still be okay if you had one of his jackets. After the show, Maier told Details that his spring collection was made for road trips. Judging by the clothes, that's definitely the kind adventure we'd be happy to have.
