There had been widespread speculation that Bottega Veneta was looking to showcase its Spring/Summer 2017 show outside its own venue. Finally, after much anticipation, the venue was revealed to be the historical Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan. Also known as Brera Academy, the show will also celebrate the 15th anniversary of Creative Director Tomas Maier and 50th anniversary of the brand itself.
Presenting collections for both women and men, the fashion event will be staged in the classroom hallways of the Accademia, lined with classical sculptures and artworks. It also marks Bottega Veneta’s commitment to support the Accademia di Brera educational programme during the academic year 2016/2017 by providing scholarships for students, encouraging creativity of future generations.
Bottega Veneta Women and Men’s Spring/Summer 2017 fashion show will take place on 24 September 2016 at 9.30am and will be streamed live on bottegaveneta.com
