Bottega Veneta‘s direction under Daniel Lee has thrilled critics and brand loyalists, as the British creative imbues the legacy house with thoughtful sex appeal and covetable accessories and shoes. New footwear styles and ready-to-wear is spotlighted in Bottega Veneta: Men, a short film created by Lee and Tyrone Lebon, but the center stage is given to its diverse cast, who discuss masculinity as they experiment with the garments.

Featuring Octavian, Tricky, Neneh Cherry, Barry Keoghan and a half-dozen others, Bottega Veneta: Men is focused on one question: “What qualities make a man?” Each personality offers their own take on the subject, from Obongjayar‘s ruminations on personal representation to dancer Roberto Bolle’s musings on the body as an instrument, informed by costume and gentle twirling within chocolate wool layers. “To show weakness is also to show strength,” says Neneh Cherry, wearing gold boxer shorts and a shin-length trench coat. “Gender exchange has been quite important.”
