Collective vision has been at the core of Bottega Veneta since being founded in 1966. These books nod to this collective spirit and the history of Bottega Veneta. Gaetano Pesce’s creations for the brand and unseen photographs capturing the motion and emotions of the Summer 23 collection are assembled in two volumes, with a third volume on Creative Director Matthieu Blazy’s longstanding adoration of Kate Moss.
This fanzine is a selection of collages and collected images from Matthieu’s teenage years. Inviting you into the world of Bottega Veneta and to embrace a childlike sense of wonder. @matthieu_blazy
Kate Moss was my first Google search. She’s the first photo to be printed on the family printer. Whenever I hear a modem, I think of Kate, because I mainly looked for her pictures as a teenager. It’s a sound I will forever relate to her. She became a personal icon. It was, for me, a very serious teenage activity that became an everyday term at home. If I was doing my “Kate Moss”, it meant I was in the middle of collecting pictures. This hobby became a sort of education. This fanzine is a tribute to Kate and the pages of a binder that defined my coming of age. She was my first.– Matthieu Blazy
