Bottega Veneta

“So far my favorite collection of the season. There is no BV collection I don’t like but Tomas keeps innovating with his collections keeping the same spirit and structure that he created time ago. The prints are out of this world.” [jmrmartinho]

“This guy is the very embodiment of ‘fashion as art.’ His clothes look like they belong in a museum – they're very artful, what with how he plays with the fabrics. It's like the body is his canvas.” [StoneSkipper]

“Just incredible! It's fascinating how he manages to still impress after only always showing dresses/skirts.” [VogueDisciple93]

See all the looks and read our review of the Bottega Veneta collection.


“Great collection I thought. Not only for the vivid colors for a fall collection that were what first got my attention but also the richness of the fabrics and how it seems to be flattering despite their thickness.” [WilhelmF]

“A definite standout for MFW in my opinion… it's like a mix of Reed Krakoff and Raf's Dior.” [GERGIN]

“Iceberg has been on a roll these past two seasons with the new direction. It's cool, innovative, and actually appealing. I adored last season and I equally adore this collection. I just love the styling and layering and those cuts on some of the tops are really interesting. It's definitely one of the most underrated shows of the season.” [LagerfeldBoy]


“Gosh, this is quickly turning into Milan’s Hermes. Chic cuts, elegant materials, sophisticated femininity. Love.” [Vitamine W]

“Yesssss, he's designing clothes for modern day femme fatales again. Gorgeous tailoring, so many impressive details to behold, and I love all the attention to the neck. This is perfection.” [HeatherAnne]

“Pilati is really in his element at Agnona! This is a wonderful collection I just can't stop looking at it. This is the height of elegance and sophistication… Very refreshing to see this after all the ‘trying too hard to be edgy’ shows we have been seeing so far this season. I really wish they'd start doing runway shows but perhaps that's why this is so special. There is no buzz around it and by the looks of the clothes, it doesn't need it. They speak for themselves.” [ogepma]
