Bottega Veneta may be best known for its leather goods, but the brand's creative director Tomas Maier has now branched into the realm of music.
Maier has teamed up with Parisian DJ Michel Gaubert on Intreccio Uno, a two-disc compilation album featuring a medley of past runway show and store playlists, in time for the holiday season.
Artists featuring on the eclectic album include French pianist Maxence Cyrin, English rock group The Heavy and Norwegian producer Lindstrom, whose track "Lovesick" accompanied the Fall/Winter 2010 womenswear show.
The case cover features images from the Bottega Veneta Fall 2010/11 advertising campaign.
Retailing for $45, Intreccio Uno is available in Bottega Veneta stores worldwide. It can also be reserved on the website www.bottegaveneta.com for international shipping in time for Christmas.
To preview the album, Facebook users simply need to 'like' Intreccio Uno, and it can also be heard on the fashion house's website.
This echoes Cartier's recent collaboration with French electro group Air on the video "How Far Would You Go For Love."
Unveiled on November 9 as part of Cartier's True Love Has a Colour and a Name campaign, fans got the chance to see the exclusive clip by clicking 'like' on the jeweler's Facebook page.
Parisian DJ Gaubert is known for his work creating show soundtracks for designer brands including Chanel and is a frequent collaborator with the latter's creative director Karl Lagerfeld, who himself released the album Les Musiques que j'aime (My Favorite Songs) in 2006.
The CD featured music by artists ranging from Goldfrapp and LCD Soundsystem to classical musicians such as Stravinsky.
Gaubert has also been behind the decks at shows for the likes of Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and Nina Ricci.
