Bottega Veneta To Present Joint Men’s And Women’s Show
Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta has become the latest label to permanently combine its men’s and women’s runway shows. The brand’s Nov. 28 announcement follows its joint menswear and women’s wear spring/summer 2017 show held in September as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations. Fashion’s accelerating gender neutral trend has led a number of designer brands to throw out runway show norms in favor of integrated catwalks. Beginning in 2017, Bottega Veneta’s current runway schedule will be replaced with two shows. These will be held during the women’s fashion weeks in Milan. Bottega Veneta refers to this move as a “natural evolution” after its anniversary affair at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. Aside from celebrating half a century of the house, this event also marked 15 years with creative director Tomas Maier at the head of the brand. Read more at Luxury Daily.
