Shit Worth Checking Out: Sleek new fashion film from Bottega Veneta

Viaggio Notturno, which translates to mean 'Night Journey', is "a meditation on the romance of travel, the anonymity of hotel life and clandestine bedtime rituals".

This is Bottega Veneta's first fashion film, and is directed by Christian Weber.  Tomas Maier, who is the brand's creative director, drew on personal experience while overseeing the film's production.  “I spend ten days a month alone in a hotel, seeing people pass in the hallways, glimpsing them through windows or as they step out of the elevator,” he says. “You see these people, but you have no idea what their stories are, you can only guess. It’s about evoking that surreal state of mind you enter when you’re in an unfamiliar place.”

It's beautifully shot, and there's some great pieces featured, as to be expected.  I love the music in this, too; it's an original score by a band called Balmorhea.  Check it out, it's worth your time.
