Bottega Veneta A/W '10
Uber Luxe Italian fashion and lifestyle brand Bottega Veneta are making tentative steps into the beauty market with a fragrance that is set to launch with Coty Prestige in September 2011. So new is this, erm, news that there are no pics of the fragrance yet, but we do know that the lovely Nine d’Urso (the relatively unknown daughter of French fashion icon Inès de la Fressange and the late Italian businessman and art merchant Luigi d’Urso), will appear in the brand’s global campaign photographed by Bruce Weber.

'I’m very honoured to have been chosen by Tomas Maier to embody his first-ever women’s fragrance,' says Nine, while Maier, Creative Director of Bottega Veneta, adds, 'I chose Nine to introduce this fragrance because there is something classically elegant about her, yet she is totally modern. She conveys a sense of heritage worn lightly but with respect.' Isn’t she beautiful? [WWD, subscription required]
