The strong shoulder was the take off point for Tomas Maier's collection for Bottega Veneta's Fall/Winter 2017 collecton The collection of Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier for Fall/Winter 2017 felt and looked more like a wardrobe custom-made for style icons like Marlene Dietrich, Katherine Hepburn and Greta Garbo than a seasonal fashion presentation. Fashion observers and critics were quick to conclude that Maier’s main reference was the 40s although he insisted that the collection was all about strong shoulders and presenting new silhouettes. He wrote on the program notes: “Is like it has been drawn, starting from a precise shoulder line, as if you can see the pencil marks on a sketch.” Maeir’s new silhouette, a tribute to today’s power woman, had inevitably brought into play elements such as the high waist, shoulders in unexpected shapes and precision tailored jackets and trousers. The exaggerated puffed shoulder made a strong style statement once paired with what looked like equestrian pants. Belted jackets worn with either a pair of cropped pants or a pencil skirt highlighted an ultra sharp shoulder edge created with uncanny accuracy. Cashmere capes took on a rounded shape, drenched in warm autumnal tones like mustard, brown and orange. There were skirt suits and pantsuits some in monochromatic tones while the others utilized softer fabrics and elements that hint at an essential femininity. It was Maier’s finale, however, that impressed on the audience. A gunmetal column gown and a bronze pleated red carpet number the reinforced the designer's ability to create pieces that are essentially simple yet stunning. That the collection was polished and put-together reflected a distinct approach to fashion that has consistently defined Maeir’s work at the Italian luxury house.

REUTERS/Rick Wilking/File Photo NEW YORK/BOSTON (Reuters) - More than 22,000 barrels of oil, refined fuels and chemicals spilled at sites across Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, along with millions of cubic feet of natural gas ชุดคู่รัก and hundreds of tons of other toxic substances, a Reuters review of company reports to the U.S. Coast Guard shows. The spills, clustered around the heart of the U.S. oil industry, together rank among the worst environmental mishaps in the country in years, but fall far short of the roughly 190,000 barrels spilled in Louisiana in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina - the last major storm to take dead aim at the U.S. Gulf Coast. Harvey slammed ashore in Texas on Aug. 26, unleashing record flooding around Houston that destroyed countless homes, displaced around a million people and killed scores. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency warned people affected by the storm to avoid floodwaters, saying they could contain bacteria and other dangerous substances, but the agency has so far provided few details about spills. The EPA said earlier this week it was responding to more than a dozen spills in the wake of Harvey, but said it could not immediately provide volume estimates. The U.S.เสื้อครอบครัว ราคาส่ง
