Everything you need to know about Bottega Veneta number 03
Additionally, photographer Joshua Gordon has produced an intimate series of portraits featuring bright young queer personalities draped in the new season of Bottega (what else?). Longtime collaborator Tyrone Lebon photographed the full lookbook, titled Salon 02, featuring models like Freja Beha Erichsen, Anok Yai and Sora Choi. Not to mention designer Stefano Pilati who looks spectacularly posed in a self-proclaimed Davit Giorgadze shoot.
There is also a multitude of artist collaborations
As always, Bottega Veneta continues to provide a platform for a multitude of artistic talent. Both front and back covers of the digital newspaper, coated in neon, are by Tokyo-based graphic designer Okuyama Taiki. London-based designer duo Isabel Gibson and Helen Chesner (aka Isabel + Helen) created interpretations of Lee’s beloved Cassette and Pouch bags using their signature enlargement approach. Minimalist music pioneer Midori Takada was photographed by Japanese photographer Takashi Homma during her performance in Bottega’s flagship in Tokyo. Artist Erika Vogt has created a series of sculptures that include some of the brand’s signature shoes, such as the Puddle ankle boots. A tribute to the brand’s Venetian roots can be found in a photoshoot featuring Japanese-Italian artist Ritsue Mishima, best known for her unique Venetian glass art, outside her studio in Venice.
