Bottega Veneta’s social media presence may still be nonexistent, but its quarterly digital journal is still going strong. On Monday, the luxury brand’s Issue 02 was released, showcasing artwork, short videos, editorials, and more that highlight creative director Daniel Lee’s latest designs and “It” items, like phone cord jewelry turned into nail art and a sand sculpture shaped like a platform clog.
Plus, much like its online debut back in March, the newest issue is packed with famous faces modeling Bottega Veneta, including a portrait series of Naomi Campbell and Travis Scott photographed by David LaChapelle. Musical artists Arca, Neneh Cherry, Skepta, Little Simz, and more are also featured in campaign-style imagery.
“Social media represents the homogenization of culture,” Lee said in an interview with the Guardian in March. “Everyone sees the same stream of content. A huge amount of thought goes into what I do, and social media oversimplifies it.”
Indeed, while Bottega Veneta’s digital journal may take some time and effort to actually consume, it sure beats getting lost in a massive feed of online posts.
