Bottega Veneta returns to the world of film this Qixi
Celebrating love with “Towards You”
In celebration of Qixi, China’s festival of romance, Bottega Veneta’s new film Towards You explores the universality of love today. Love’s intricacies are told through a multiplicity of characters running through different cities in China and, rather than expected endings, the film focuses on the pure joy of racing towards love as they encounter strangers or past lovers along the way.
Towards You isn’t the first film Bottega Veneta has worked on; it is actually their third collaboration with Jess Jing Zou, commissioned by creative director Matthieu Blazy. The film establishes Blazy’s value of self-expression with the message that the truest luxury in life is to be oneself.

Captured by Arnaud Lajeunie, the campaign showcases Yonezu in LOEWE's latest ensembles. Set against blurred backgrounds, Yonezu dons standout pieces, from metal angel-winged shirts to nappa lambskin coats and even the new Puzzle Fold tote bag.
The campaign offers glimpses into Yonezu's creative space, surrounded by novels and memorabilia that have been pillars in his journey to establishing his creative identity. The exhibit takes place at LOEWE Omotesando and CASA LOEWE Tokyo from August 16 to 23, and outdoor exhibits extend nationwide.
