Bottega Veneta: Standout Little Black Dresses

Bottega Veneta: Standout Little Black DressesAlthough Bottega Veneta has only been around since 1966, its impact on the world of fashion is unmistakable.

According to WWD in ‘Bottega Veneta Through the Years,’ “… founded in 1966 in Vicenza, Veneto, by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro. Shortly after Zengiaro left Bottega Veneta at the end of the ‘70s, Taddei handed over the company to his ex-wife Laura Braggion, who headed the company with her second husband Vittorio Moltedo, and was the brand’s creative director. She would contribute to the early success of the brand in the U.S., becoming an assistant of Andy Warhol, whose studios made the short film “Bottega Veneta Industrial Videotape” in 1985, and opened the first store there in New York in 1972.”

Initially revered for its Italian luxury leather goods, in 2005, Bottega Veneta presented its first women’s ready-to-wear runway show – and the world of fashion has never been the same!

This season is no different. In particular, the reinvention of the classic Little Black Dress by Bottega Veneta showcases a wonderful structural quality that’s thoroughly modern and manages to simultaneously maintain femininity and glam style.

Here are a few of my favorites!

    Those dresses (and models) are all gorgeous. But I honestly don’t think I could carry them off now. Perhaps 15 years ago when I could “strut my stuff”! Oh but I love them!
