My Beautiful City designed and produced Bottega Veneta’s ‘The Hand of The Artisan’ event, hosted at the centuries-old Chiswick House.
The Palladian-style villa provided the perfect backdrop for the iconic Italian brand and the spirit of the Veneta.
Design elements integrated modern Italian design into the historic estate, creating a juxtaposition between the past, present, and future.
Every sensorial detail was carefully articulated, from the mirrored floral installations (inspired by German Renaissance artist, Albrecht Dürer) to the outdoor sculpture based on Bottega Veneta's own iconic Knot clutch to the Venetian-inspired food created by chef Giorgio Locatelli.
Live artisans from Bottega Veneta’s very own atelier in Montebello Vicento joined the festivity and helped set the authentic ambiance, educating swanky guests like Poppy Delevingne, Arizona Muse, and Amber Le Bon on the history and craftsmanship behind the house’s leather goods, jewellery, and fragrance, while DJs Joséphine de la Baume and The Postmen kept the mood lively.
