Bottega Veneta has tapped Juergen Teller for its fall ad campaign, debuting in the August issue of international magazines.
This is the first time the brand has collaborated with the German photographer, who shot the images in the home-turned-museum of late Italian architect and designer Carlo Mollino. Located in Turin, Italy, the two-story villa was built in the 18th century on the shore of the Po River. The images, featuring models Anna Cleveland and Freddy Drabble, are set in the different rooms of the house decorated in an eccentric style inspired by occultism.
Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier praised Teller’s ability to “capture a distinctive and sophisticated angle.”
Teller’s pictures will be featured in the “Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration” book published by Rizzoli, which will be released in October. The book will collect all the brand’s advertising campaigns, dating back to 2002, shot by a range of international photographers and artists, including Ryan McGinley, David Sims, Pieter Hugo, David Armstrong, Ralph Gibson, Peter Lindbergh, Alex Prager, Robert Longo, Nan Goldin, Steven Meisel, Larry Sultan, Sam Taylor-Wood, Annie Leibovitz, Tina Barney, Lord Snowdon, Stephen Shore and Philip-Lorca diCorcia.
