Two years after the launch of its first scent for women, Bottega Veneta is bringing its masculine counterpart to the table. And like the first one, the brand is seeking to make a statement with the juice, produced with licensee Coty Prestige.
“I think it’s more interesting to make a statement than to go with what’s been done and what’s the success story of the moment,” said Tomas Maier, who has been the 47-year-old brand’s creative director since June 2001, during an interview at the brand’s Manhattan showroom. “I prefer not to know. I prefer to take a risk and jump into the cold water and make a statement. The market is so difficult and there are so many perfumes that come out and so many perfumes that disappear. And I’d rather have a perfume that resists time, that can remain. We need to bring to [the customers] something that is special and unique. I don’t think we can make the whole world happy, and that’s not my role, but I want this to stay. That’s my desire.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
