Continuing Bottega Veneta’s tradition of creative collaboration in producing the brand’s advertising campaigns, Tomas Maier turned to American photographer David Armstrong to capture the understated sensuality of Knot. Shot on location in New York City, the campaign reflects Armstrong’s distinctive approach to portraiture.

His painterly, naturally-lit images of model Julia Nobis, the face of the Knot campaign, are simultaneously reserved and intimate, and convey a mood of timelessness. Her beauty is multi-layered and in photographs she exudes a soulful, womanly quality that is strong yet vulnerable. She possesses an innate allure and restraint that Tomas Maier felt was harmonious with the spirit of Bottega Veneta and the embodiment of Knot.
