“This line is about the casual side of life: traveling, the weekend, lounging at home,” Tomas Maier says of his first full namesake collection, composed of comfortable pieces ideal for long flights. For women, that means unfussy items such as dark denim shirtdresses, buttery leather skirts, and pantsuits that aren’t overly structured or formal; for men, there are relaxed blazers, slouchy trousers, and reimagined parkas and peacoats. Swimwear and accessories, including bold wooden jewelry, pointy flats, and roomy totes, make an understated impact. For Maier, versatility—neutral colors; clean shapes—is a priority. “I’m interested in separates that pair together in various ways. They can be a little dressy or very casual, but always make you look and feel good when you travel.”

Another goal for Maier, who is also creative director of Bottega Veneta, is attainability. “It was important for me to create thoughtful, well-made designer garments, but at an attractive price point,” he says. “There’s so much out there that’s very expensive; I wanted to do something different.”
