Bottega Veneta‘s Matthieu Blazy is a die-hard Kate Moss fan. So much so, the designer has released three zines: two centering around Gaetano Pesce‘s creations for the House and the Summer 2023 collection, and a third dedicated to the British supermodel.
Speaking on the project and Kate Moss specifically, Blazy said:
“Kate Moss was my first Google search. She’s the first photo to be printed on the family printer. Whenever I hear a modem, I think of Kate, because I mainly looked for her pictures as a teenager. It’s a sound I will forever relate to her. She became a personal icon. It was, for me, a very serious teenage activity that became an everyday term at home. If I was doing my ‘Kate Moss,’ it meant I was in the middle of collecting pictures. This hobby became a sort of education. This fanzine is a tribute to Kate and the pages of a binder that defined my coming of age. She was my first.”
With this in mind, Bottega Veneta’s zine features scans of Moss’ most iconic adverts, paparazzi photos, magazine covers, and a sketch by Blazy that recreated the model’s British Vogue cover. The collection of images are all from Blazy’s personal archive honoring Moss, and entices you to enter a “childlike sense of wonder.”
