The destinations are decided, the flights are booked. I am now planning my wardrobe. Three things are important for me: efficiency, style and versatility. I want my holiday attire to be comfortable, but look sharp. None of that sloppy “I’m here to relax” business, thanks. Neither I want to be predictable and go for what everyone else goes for like loose caftans or white capri pants.
I want the garments to be bright and punchy enough to stand out, but neutral enough to mix-and-match. Am I asking for the impossible? Not for Tomas Maier, who 10 years ago has been hand-picked by Tom Ford to run Bottega Veneta fashion house. The man understands the values of a modern day woman and responds to her ‘unattainable’ demands adequately, with a dose of healthy sophistication. He shows us exactly how a glamourous business woman dresses from the time she leaves her city stomping ground until she arrives beachside.
