Bottega Veneta SS18 “Art of Collaboration” Final Chapter Unveiled

Bottega Veneta SS18 “Art of Collaboration” Final Chapter Unveiled

Continuing Bottega Veneta’s “Art of Collaboration” series, Reflections, the Italian brand has released the final two short films “Aurora” and “Vertigo”. Working with industry’s pre-eminent director, Fabien Baron, both fashion films transport the audience to an alternate reality

In Aurora, leading model Vittoria Ceretti  perfectly encapsulates what it means to be the face of a new generation. That even in political or social upheaval the Bottega Veneta woman remains sophisticated and self-assured. This is also Tomas Maier’s way of pushing the boundaries of fashion advertising, setting a unique precedent in luxury storytelling through the brand’s products and values.

Not to mention set designer Stefan Beckham— the artist behind some of fashion’s most elaborate runway sets — who retained the allure, mystery and sensuality of Bottega Veneta through his execution in stage design. 

The sixth chapter of Bottega Veneta’s Spring/Summer’18 campaign, Vertigo, starts off with a glitch-y cinematic landscape as both male (Janis Ancens) and female (Vittoria Ceretti) protagonist engage in a quick gaze, strategically panned towards the camera.

Disruptive yet pleasantly surreal, cinematographer Philippe Le Sourd’s artistic direction lent a hand in illuminating the entire collection, whilst retaining a hypnotic storyline. Read more about the innovative campaign and our exclusive interview with Creative Director, Tomas Maier in the March’18 print issue.
