CRUISIN’: Bottega Veneta has completed its first-ever cruise campaign, with Tomas Maier, creative director at the luxury goods house, choosing Todd Eberle to shoot model Colette in a residential building in New York designed by Jean Nouvel. The campaign is set to launch worldwide in December titles. “Eberle explores the nuance and subtlety of architecture,” said Maier. “He brought a unique understanding of line and color to the images, balancing abstract ideas with the individuality of the woman.” Eberle is a photographer at large for Vanity Fair. The Bottega Veneta styles in the ads emphasize bold color blocks, visible stitching and soft, yet graphic, shapes that are in tune with the geometric accessories in brightly colored leathers.
