The film begins with Shu, who departs from the street clutching a black Sardine Bag before ascending onto a rooftop to take in the sunrise in solitude. Later, the campaign captures friends leaving the city, heading to the beach, and navigating rural, winding roads. The group can be seen running to the end of a pier and taking moped rides beneath windmills, highlighting the functionality of the Orbit Sneaker, which is previewed in a new red colourway.

Models shield themselves from the morning chill with the Argyle Intarsia Wool Jumper in a Cocoa/yellow colourway, channelling the rising sun’s warmth. These thrill-seeking protagonists depict Bottega Veneta in motion, highlighting the utilitarian properties of key items, including the Adiamo bag and a bespoke Jodie with a dragon-tail handle. Other campaign stars include Chen Estelle, who takes in the sunrise with her mother during a riverside Shanghai walk, while a couple retreats to the snow-capped mountains for New Year. 

For its Lunar New Year 2024 campaign, Bottega Veneta’s elegant brand of luxury shone through like the morning sun, highlighting its versatility in both the city and the mountains.
