Not to shortchange the collective male sartorial IQ here, but for most guys, a suit serves a purpose. Work, wedding, funerals. You put it on because you"re supposed to. It"s that simple. The matter of casual clothes can be more difficult. It"s the clothes we wear in the off time—on the weekend, on vacation, between the times when we"re wearing suits—that can serve to state our true identity.
Tomas Maier"s Spring 2015 offering would be better described as a complete casual wardrobe than a fashion collection. All of the pieces were there—the soft, gutted blazer; salt-washed polos and faded, bleached-out jeans; sweaters—cashmere for March and merino for April; simple nylon jogging shorts and Windbreakers. "Easy pieces," said Maier. "Easy ways to get dressed. Life is complicated enough the way it is."
Maier"s hand as a designer—he is the creative director of Bottega Veneta, after all—was subtle but present throughout. Clothes were almost decadent to touch, but still featured functional details like deep pockets and drawstrings—"I"m German," said Maier, "I think about functionality. I"m born with that." But the lineup never made a loud declaration about how men should dress. "I don"t want guys to look like a fashion statement," said Maier. "I think that"s ridiculous. I want to help [them] to look better. To have the right jeans. To have the right fit of sweater. Little things, without being meticulous."
