Nature works in mysterious ways. An unforeseen snowstorm had threatened to jeopardise Bottega Veneta’s latest “The Art of Collaboration” photo shoot; instead, it left a beautiful layer of snow in its wake, adding a layer of serenity to the pictures shot on location at Lee House 2. A stunning piece of architecture built in 1956 by John Black Lee, the glass house is the setting for the Italian marque’s campaign.

“That white background really brought out the colours of the clothing in a way that I had not seen before,” observed Todd Hido, who returned to lens the fall/winter edition of “The Art of Collaboration”. He added: “It reminded me of how a cardinal looks so vibrant in the snow.” A short film titled “Mixed Messages” was also produced by Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta’s Creative Director, to complement the campaign visuals.
