This season, Tomas Maier dreamed up a wardrobe of modern, individualistic pieces for Bottega Veneta by challenging himself to see what he could do with a dot. To get there, he sampled from ’60s and ’80s tropes, resulting in mannish separates covered in rainbowhued spots, dotted denim, and boxy shift dresses with round mirror embellishments. On the accessories front, the polka dot idea manifested most delightfully as chunky crystal embellishments on the timeless loafer shape, lifted (literally) with a low block heel and luxe gold leather. On the runway, they lent a fresh ease to Maier’s sharp shoulders and mini hemlines. Available at Bottega Veneta, Lot
