This winter, Bottega Veneta has introduced a limited edition set of fanzines across all of their stores worldwide. And get this – they’re completely free! Starting this tradition after creative director Matthieu Blazy’s AW22 collection, the zines are being released in line with the latest collection becoming available to shop IRL. Spread across four fabulous volumes, these pretty page-turners will reveal the bottom-to-top of the collection, starting with the OG sketches and going all the way up to campaign release. The collection, which concludes Blazy’s ‘Italia trilogy’ – a series of collections drawing on Italy’s past, present and future – showcases the houses new direction, reimagining traditional craftsmanship and materials.  

Readers can also find sketches by British Cypriot designer Hussein Chalayan spattered throughout the pages, speaking to the ease and vitality of the various looks. Encased in a sleek, stracciatella-inspired slip that mirrors the floor that set the stage for the collection’s original showing, the zines are available from today onwards.
