Bottega Veneta’s Schorr Thing
Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier has made a policy of hiring artists to shoot the label’s ad campaigns. His previous collaborators have included Nan Goldin, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, and Tina Barney. For BV’s new Resort lineup, he turned to Collier Schorr, an artist best known for portraits of adolescents that merge realism and fantasy. “I’m drawn to the immediacy of [her] images…the fearless dynamic between artist and subject,” Maier says in the video we’re debuting exclusively here. “The campaign and the collection are about surface and what’s beneath, about the layers that create a look and an identity.” For more of the designer’s impressions on Schorr and the collection, watch the clip.
