Bottega Veneta's S/S17 runway show was a memorable one - after all, who could forget Gigi Hadid and Lauren Hutton walking arm-in-arm down the runway for the finale? And for next season, the brand are making another statement by joining its men's and women's shows into one. 

They've toyed with the idea already, having mixed a few men's looks into the S/S17 show, but A/W17 will be the first official joining of the two. 

The house explained the reason for the merge in a statement, saying, "The Bottega Veneta universe is built on both genders. As a consequence, showing both men and women together is an organic move that follows the evolution of Tomas Maier's creative vision." 

Burberry was the first of the major fashion houses to make the shift, followed by Gucci, and it seems that Bottega might not be the only one to follow as Vetements has also hinted at its plans to do the same.
