Bottega Veneta: Viaggio Notturno
Under the lead of creative director Thomas Maier, Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta has just debuted its first fashion film, Viaggio Notturno (Night Journey). Directed by Christian Weber and shot at the Setai Hotel in New York City, this dark short captures the mystery, romance and anonymity of hotel living and traveling while also highlighting some signature designs from the label’s permanent collection. The concept behind the film was drawn from Maier’s own personal experience, as the designer often finds himself staying in hotels alone while splitting time between his office in Milan and his home in Florida. Featuring an original score by Austin-based chamber-pop band Balmorhea, Vaggio Notturno stars models Patricia van der Vliet and Terron Wood.
