“The essential starting point for Cruise is always the feeling of comfort and ease,” says Creative Director Tomas Maier.

Bottega Veneta Cruise 2014/15 collection showcases painterly colors, fluid lines, and dying and bleaching techniques for an easy and confidant approach to men’s’ style. Focusing on black, navy, burnt red and espresso, silhouettes are lightened with the accents of sky blue, mist, flamingo, sage, palm, pale and sand.

“I was interested in experimenting with techniques that are difficult to control and the possibilities they can bring, however subtle or unconcealed the result may be,” continues Maier.

Put behind you the fuss of understanding the difference between a Shell Knot and Full Windsor, and take advantage of the new world of fashion where rules were flung out the window. With tailored shirts, trousers, and jackets this cruise collection allows for a more pliable and natural styling. Add the innovative brogue sneaker hybrid, the options will become immeasurably endless wardrobe options. Especially with the growing return to the sophisticated man.
