The last word in understated luxury and inimitable craftsmanship, who better than Bottega Veneta to make a coffee table book documenting its history?
The venerated Veneto house has brought out a tome devoted to the partnership between artisan and designer which is so intrinsic to the brand.
Glossy, rich and luxurious to the last detail, the book will lift your coffee table in the same way that an intrecciato leather bag lifts the plainest jeans-and-tshirt outfit. Tomas Maier’s strong and uncompromising aesthetic comes across on every page as he draws on the expertise of some leading lights in fashion journalism to write about the brand.
In Bottega Veneta Stores across Europe from this week, the book costs £60 – a snip for a bit of fashion history.
