Project Spotlight: Bottega Veneta x Nancy Lorenz

We’d like to highlight a great example on Squarespace today: a website for the collaboration between Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta and renowned artist Nancy Lorenz. As a platform that supports creativity and artistic expression, we were thrilled that Bottega Veneta chose Squarespace to showcase Skies and Beyond, the third collection by Nancy Lorenz for Bottega Veneta.

The set of 25 one-of-a-kind leather and suede boxes follows two earlier collaborations between the brand and artist: “Lunar Landscapes” collection of 2003, and the "Botanical" collection of 2002. An artist whose work regularly features in the Chahan galerie in Paris and the Morgan Lehman gallery in New York, Nancy Lorenz creates her pieces using luxurious materials such as mother-of-pearl inlay, lacquer, and gold leaf. The boxes are unique, singular pieces of art that can also be used to store letters, photos, jewelry—the small treasures you want close at hand. The Skies and Beyond collection was exhibited at the Salone del Mobile International Furniture and Design Fair in Milan in April, and can now be admired on http://skiesandbeyond.bottegaveneta.com/ as well as in Bottega Veneta boutiques around the world.

The Skies and Beyond website was built using Momentum, which is a perfect choice for interactive brochures, catalogs, and full-bleed photography portfolios.
