Following on from Saskia de Brauw and Sung Jin Park photographed by Nobuyoshi Araki for Spring-Summer 2015, and Anna Cleveland and Freddy Drabble this season, now it's Joséphine Le Tutour and Ben Allen's turn to model for Bottega Veneta's latest collection.

The job of photographing these two internationally-acclaimed models was entrusted to Raymond Meier, who in just a few years has become one of the top photographers in the fashion world.

"Raymond Meier's all-around vision and distinctive interpretation of color perfectly epitomize the light-hearted and pragmatic essence of this cruise season," says Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier.

Shot in New York, the photos highlight the bright palette of colors and the nonchalant elegance of the Italian brand's 2015-2016 cruise collection, with Manhattan's skyscrapers as a backdrop.

This new campaign is the latest in a series of collaborations between the luxury goods firm and a string of respected photographers including Nan Goldin, Juergen Teller, Peter Lindbergh, Pieter Hugo, and Nobuyoshi Araki. All the photos in this series can be found in the "Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration" book which was published by Rizzoli in October.
