Tomas Maier is first out of the gate with his Resort collection for Bottega Veneta, and if his offering is any indication of the direction things will go for Resort—or Pre-Spring or whatever we’re calling it these days—it should be an optimistic, upbeat season. Bright color is key for Maier: There was the snappy green of a skirtsuit worn with a matching cashmere shirt; a drapey velvet dévoré dress in a gorgeous, almost electric shade of purple; and a lush shearling robe coat in carnation pink striped with black. He also believes in mixing unexpected hues, so a lightweight, shiny lambskin coat in a red-brown he called Calvados was shown with a skirt in Brighton blue and a citrine-yellow silk blouse—a fearless combination that totally worked.

Another clue about the season to come? Designers might finally be tiring of athleisure. Maier made a point of avoiding sportswear in favor of tailoring and a strong emphasis on outerwear. “It’s very proper,” he said of the overall effect. What allowed the almost prim daytime silhouettes to feel modern was his use of lightweight and, in the case of the neoprene pieces, techy fabrics. The black leather trench came with woven intrecciato details, a nice touch. For evening, he traded the decorous attitude for something more laid-back. Long silk jersey dresses and a couple of others in a graphically printed Japanese crepe were accessorized with flat skimmer shoes.
