Clear your coffee table for this season’s must-have tome:
Rizzoli’s Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration ($135) comprises campaign images shot by 20-plus photographers since 2002. The ultimate art-meets-fashion body of work was the brainchild of Creative Director Tomas Maier, whose passion for photography informs his use of the medium “to broaden the impression of what Bottega Veneta means today,” he says. Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel and Alex Prager are among those who’ve been tasked to envision and create “narratives and scenarios that go beyond the typical fashion image” for the brand, which is supporting the Hammer Museum’s fall gala on Oct. 10. In Maier’s words, “Our customers are intelligent people; they deserve something more than what is obvious.” Available at Bottega Veneta boutiques. • KATHRYN ROMEYN.
