Bottega Veneta Fall/Winter 2010 Men Collection: “Teddy Boy”

Definitely an unusual direction from the safe elegance associated with the Bottega Venetta man. Creative Director Thomas Maier, decided to be daring this season, and offered it along side another form of chic, the 1950s attitude-full Teddy Boy look. It’s all about string ties, thick-soled shoes and rolled-up trouser cuffs, double-breasted wool blazers and over-gelled hair.

Thomas Maier explained “We wanted to address the different ways men visualize themselves. Bottega Veneta’s goal is always to expand the vocabulary of men’s wear, to add individuality and expression. So there is sophistication, but also playfulness, bravado, eccentricity, rebelliousness – it all depends on how it’s put together.”
