CINEMATIC JOURNEY: Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier has probably stayed in more hotel rooms than he cares to remember, but he still sees the allure in travel, particularly when it is done with Bottega luggage and travel accoutrements. The Italian luxury house created a short film about the romance of travel. Directed by Christian Weber and shot in New York last February, “Viaggio Notturno” separately follows a man and woman as they settle in a luxury hotel suite, to an atmospheric score by Texas-based instrumental ensemble Balmorhea. “When the idea of making a film came up, I wanted to show not just the practical side of travel — the luggage, the eye mask — but also what is surreal, romantic, and potentially transformative about a voyage,” Maier said. The film launches Tuesday at Nowness.com, and can be viewed at Bottegaveneta.com and the brand’s Facebook site and YouTube channel.
