In a salute to the masterful craftsmanship for which it has become known, Italian fashion house BOTTEGA VENETA has teamed with Rizzoli to publish its first namesake book. With the famous slogan, “When Your Own Initials Are Enough” — Bottega Veneta has no official logo, preferring to let its signature woven-leather bags and shoes speak for themselves — the house has become a symbol for discreet luxury. From runway photos to iconic campaigns, the 300-plus-page hardcover offers an illustrative journey through the label’s rich history of extraordinary materials and design. Co-written by Bottega’s creative director, Tomas Maier, and with introductions by some of fashion’s most high-profile journalists, each chapter explores a different category of luxury goods: the bags and shoes, of course, plus luggage and more. With the deluxe edition’s woven-leather slipcover — Bottega calls its famous technique intrecciato — this page-turner will be the chicest piece to land on your coffee table this fall. Bottega Veneta deluxe edition, $700, through Bottega Veneta, NorthPark Center. — Bradley Agather
