Bottega Veneta Men's RTW Fall 2010 / MFW-Day02

Confidence counts, and the Bottega Veneta man has it for fall with a rebellious, rockabilly wardrobe that was packed with attitude.

Rumbling into new style turf, designer Tomas Maier tattooed “hope” and “sin” on to models’ knuckles, greased their hair into pompadours and dressed them up in clothes that were both assertive and urbane. He opened with sporty, technical jackets decked with zippers and paired with knitted pants that were tapered at the ankle.

There were quieter, sartorial looks, too, in shadow stripes and subtle windowpane checks, and fabrics ranging from sumptuous corduroys to water-resistant silks and ultra soft suede. But Maier’s double-breasted jackets, some in electrifying tones, exemplified his bold approach. The show climaxed with polished-yet-punk dinner jackets over jeans with turn-up cuffs.

The looks were accessorized with bolo ties and white socks tucked into glossy leather creeper shoes, proving this Teddy Boy is no teddy bear.
