Rizzoli publishes 'Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration'
October 21, 2015: In 2002, Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta’s Creative Director, launched the Art of Collaboration - a project that invites a world-renowned photographer or contemporary artist to collaborate on the Italian brand’s campaign for each season. With more than 1000 photographs, this book chronicles the comprehensive series of creative partnerships since the beginning.
Divided by each seasonal campaign from 2002 to 2016 Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration documents the collaborations between Tomas Maier and all the artists who have contributed to the creation of Bottega Veneta’s advertising portfolio including Lord Snowdon, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Robert Longo, Nan Goldin, Nick Knight, Philip-Lorca diCorcia and others.
Featuring some of today’s brightest visionaries, often from outside the world of fashion, Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration illustrates how they have each interpreted the house’s modernist aesthetic and material elegance, resulting in an essential volume for photography aficionados.
