Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta has released its spring/summer '18 campaign, taking the form of a series of six cinematic films directed by Fabien Barron. Titled Reflections, the narratives of the films will begin to reveal themselves as each clip airs over the course of the season, however each will find itself centred on the label’s pillars of mystery, sophistication, architecture, sensuality and surrealism. Oscar nominated cinematographer Philippe Le Sourd, set designer Stefan Beckman and record-producer and composer Johnny Jewel also worked on the campaign alongside Barron.
