The Bottega Residency discovers creative geniuses and partners of the Italian high fashion brand exploring films, books, and music that influence their opus. Their latest associate is a photographer, Walter Pfeiffer, who is looking to share his artwork through the digital platform.
The new succession of the residency explores Pfeiffer’s favorite author Guy de Maupassant and his treasured novel Bel Amis, which narrates the rise of an ex-soldier, George Duroy. Other than that, this version looks through Pierro Della Francesca’s 1464 masterpiece, “Procession of the Queen of Sheba and meeting between the Queen of Sheba and King Soloman,” which plays an influence in most of Pfeiffer’s output.
The digital residency is known to be “A theatre of joyous distraction” also highlights visual works customized for a British photographer and movie maker, Tyrone Lebon, in-house creative director Daniel Lee and Director of Sadler’s Wells Pheobe Reith Ibery.
Daniel Lee identifies David Hockney, film director Steven Speilberg, and Maurice Bejart as his all-time favorite. “Creativity and strength lie at the heart of Bottega Veneta. In this highly distressing time, we feel a responsibility to celebrate those values and ignite a sense of joy and hope in our community and beyond,” Lee said on the digital platform. At a recent fashion award, the creative director and fashion designer won four awards, including Brand of the Year and Best Designer of the Year.
Bottega Residency also presents live music performances, cooking sessions with rising chefs, and movie night on Sundays, hosted by famous people from the entertainment industry. Bottega Veneta is looking to expand this venture with more interesting activities in the nearest future.
