MATCHESFASHION.COM X Bottega Veneta launches exclusive pieces from their women’s and men’s AW19 collection with an installation at 5 Carlos Place.
The project celebrates Bottega Veneta Create Director Daniel Lee’s first runway collection and the exclusive pieces for MATCHESFASHION.COM
Quote from Bottega Veneta Creative Director Daniel Lee:
‘The Fall 2019 collection is a statement of new intentions, a new point of view, it’s about building a wardrobe with great pieces to wear. I wanted a mix of contemporary and classic, new technologies with a new immediacy, clothes that could be as refined as they were relevant.’
The Fall 2019 collection is a celebration of freedom, self-expression and sensuality. An exercise in elevated detail, noble materials and energetic silhouettes. While the quiet craft central to Bottega Veneta’s identity is still present, Fall 2019 brings a sharp injection of modernity to traditional technique, turning up the volume.
The installation at 5 Carlos Place is inspired by the classic Italian movies, put in contrast with modern and lively details in sky blue and gold. The exclusive items will be displayed in a contemporary set-up of pillars and cubes, while a selection of Italian movies will be screened into special viewing towers.
Women’s exclusive items for MATCHESFASHION.COM include an Intrecciato Nappa rectangular clutch and a Spazzolato Calf cross-body, both in Plaster colour. The quilted pumps in Nappa Dream are inspired by luxury car interiors of the 1970’s. The satin coat and cashmere skirt are exclusively presented in Chocolate, the wool
knit dress is in Plaster.
Quote from MATCHESFASHION.COM Fashion Buying Director Natalie Kingham:
‘We are very excited to partner with Bottega Veneta on these exclusive AW19 pieces. The luxurious aesthetic of the brand resonates with our customers and we know they will love the collection that incorporates key
runway styles in the beautiful cream and chocolate colour ways.’
For Men’s the Fondente brown Intrecciato small messenger features the triangle detail signature of the Fall 2019 collection. The defining footwear statement on this runway was the biker boot, here in Espresso. To complete the special selection of exclusive products, a Plaster knit and Fondente pants.
Quote MATCHESFASHION.COM Head of Menswear Damian Paul:
‘Daniel Lee’s Bottega Veneta is imbued with a modern elegance. We wanted to offer our customer a chance to buy some of the runway pieces – the heavy-duty Chelsea boot, the cut-out roll-neck – in fresh, alternative colours that feel luxurious. The interecciato cross-body bag is a completely new addition – has a refined aesthetic and a boxy silhouette which is ideal for the new season.’
The AW19 collection and exclusive styles is available online at www.matchesfashion.com and at 5 Carlos Place now.
