Shop Talk

I've been on an image/inspiration hunt most of the day, and while in the midst of that ran across some Scott Schuman photos I saved a few years back of Tomas Maier's shop in Miami.

Maier is the visionary creative director of Bottega Veneta, as well as for his own line.

One of the other reasons he has stood out in my mind is that he has employed photographers such as Larry Sultan, Nan Goldin, Robert Longo, and Sam Taylor-Wood to shoot Bottega campaigns that might normally be shot by more conventional fashion photographers.

Maier's eclectic taste is reflected in the well-edited variety of his shop. Kind of makes me want to get into retail. Here's an article about Tomas Maier from a recent issue of W, and here is his website. Check out some looks from Bottega Veneta's Spring/Summer 2011 collection here.
