The creative director Tomas Maier has designed this collection with the aim of inspiring joy, and in order to do this, he has chosen extraordinary fabrics such as silk and cotton jersey, silk satin, chiffon and crepe, unusual finishes and exuberant prints. The silhouette is fluid and sensual, and the palette of colors goes from bright tones up to an explosion of energy, even of happiness (as Mr. Maier would say), and then cream, white, purple, black, red, green, orange in its darker shade and chocolate brown. You’ve got it, after reading the word “chocolate” and seeing this look I had no choice. I had to commit the “crime” of cooking. What did I cook? Well, the result you can see by yourself and it’s called a brownie, a typical cake with an American flavor that takes its name from its dark color. The preparation is very easy, it is simply a rectangular shaped cake to be cut into cubes. Come on, take off your Bottega Veneta dress and put on a nice wrap around apron!
