Bottega Veneta Pant in Chino Cotton
Hawk-eyed Rake readers might recognise these from our latest issue, in which their nero alternative are paired with, well, absolutely nothing. However, these are one of the rare items that truly translates from magazine page to personal collection. Paired with a piqué knit off-white T-shirt, exotically patterned Cuban collar or a high-twist travel blazer, they simply call out for summer styling that looks effortless and natural yet fitted enough on top so as to balance the volume of the bottoms. The outward facing front pleats create the optical illusion of a flat stomach (if, unlike our model, your abs couldn’t cut glass), and the side-adjusters and fishtail back perfect the flattering effect of the high waist.
