Bottega Veneta creates its First Published book melding literature and clothing seamlessly
Deep in the hills of Veneto, Italy traditions that are storied have long been a part of the Bottega Veneta brand. Founded in 1966 the brand found new acclaim with its creative director Tomas Maier in 2001.
In everything that Tomas Maier produces there is an air of sophistication that is often so striking that similar versions of the clothing and handbags find their way to the floors of mass merchants like Zara or Mango. (They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.)
In staying with this sophistication, Tomas Maier has teamed up with the Rizzoli publishing company to create Bottega Veneta’s first book. The collaborative effort between Maier was further enhanced by Sam Shahid, as well as many of the world’s leading fashion journalists. “Each chapter is devoted to a different category of luxury goods and is introduced by a thoughtful, insightful essay,” states Bottega Veneta.
The book is a “richly illustrated survey of craftsmanship, design, and extraordinary materials that have made the Italian label one of the most eminent purveyors of luxury goods in the world,” states the Bottega Veneta head office. “This book will be ultimate volume for the true connoisseur of luxury, and a must for anyone with an interest in the evolution of this venerable brand.”
For those fashion enthusiasts that can not seem to get enough of all things brand oriented, this would be the ultimate coffee table book or night-time read.
The English version of the book is available in the Bottega Veneta boutique in Prague for 2,000CZK, while the luxury version of the book, slipcase in intrecciato leather will be available for 13,790CZK.
