Gai xinh 08

Bottega Veneta, owned by France's PPR through the Gucci Group, uses its roots in traditional Italian leather craftsmanship to bring twists to a classic look.

Designer Tomas Maier used natural colors of chocolate brown, putty, lemon and palomino blonde for his collection, adding gold and silver for highlights.

Tan leather turned into an A-line dress stopping just above the knee with a button front, or was worked into long gloves that finished above the elbow and were worn with a short-sleeved, swing back raincoat.

Earlier on Tuesday, designers Missoni and Anna Molinari's Blumarine collection had also gone for loose, flowing looks.

Missoni, known for geometric print knits, put the focus on hems, borders and necklines but kept to an emerging theme for this week's shows of flowing looks.
