Its a shame that we never got to see any Giles Deacon deigned menswear during his time at Bottega Veneta, but his successor Tomas Maier has been doing a great job of continuing to keep the label relevant and creating some outstanding male clothing.  The latest Fall/Winter 2010 show has been no exception, besides the always reliable high quality leather accessories is an overtly rockabilly look that includes high waisted trousers, frock coats and double breasted blazers, luckily it’s saved from being a complete retro pastiche with the addition of drop crotch pants and layered technical casual wear.

The 50s has served as inspiration for a few high-end and streetwear collections already this season, and I have a feeling that there will be more to come.
