Finer details of Bottega Veneta’s Spring Summer 2016 Advertising Campaign have been revealed and we’re simply so thrilled! The Italian couturier has interestingly collaborated with Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen to capture shots of models Mica Arganaraz and Sven de Vries as they lounged on Jean Dubuffet’s Jardin d’émail resin and concrete installation with polyurethane paints, located inside the garden of the Kroller-Muller Museum in Amsterdam.
For these shots, she placed the focus on colour, texture and contrast to create images that narrate a personal story transforming models Mica Arganaraz and Sven De Vries into performing sculptures posing in striking and unusual positions.
“Viviane’s work is both beautiful and enigmatic,” Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier commented. “You can’t help but be drawn to her images, her atmospheres and the distinct sense of mystery she creates. I admire her bold experimentation and how she breaks the rules yet never loses her balance.”
In the past, the brand has teamed up with an impressive list of photographers, including the likes of Nobuyoshi Araki, Nan Goldin, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Pieter Hugo, Peter Lindbergh and Juergen Teller.
