Bottega Veneta And Gucci Create An Online Safe Space For Troubled Creatives To Relearn During COVID-19

The biggest names in luxury fashion bring us films, podcasts, and artists to learn from during the quarantine.

In response to the the global condition, luxury houses Bottega Veneta and Gucci won't let your roaming mind get stunted and usher us into an online safe space of creativity and mindfulness. As we gear towards another month in lockdown, one can only imagine how difficult it is to fully stay sane during our situation. On recent news, the President officially initiates an extension of the lockdown in Luzon up until April 30 which leaves us ample amount of time to turn into our screens and hopefully find something worthwhile and productive.


Built as a haven for creatives in quarantine, Bottega Veneta offers comfort and distraction through Bottega Residency, a multi-platform launched to spread strength, positivity, and creativity worldwide. Each week, artists from different disciplines of art, design, music, film, and beyond are invited to share their muses, influences, and inspirations.

A new approach to learn and relearn alongside talented individuals is a gift from its Creative Director Daniel Lee to everyone who seeks comfort during the pandemic. Embodying the true meaning of Bottega which is Italian for workshop, the luxury brand invites everyone to a theatre of joyous distraction from Mondays to Sundays across Instagram, Youtube, Spotify, and in a unique mini-site in bottegaveneta.com
