Korean model Sung Jin Park and Dutch model Saskia de Brauw's good looks go hand in hand quite literally in Bottega Veneta's Spring Summer 2015 campaign. Nobuyoshi Araki photographed the pair in Tokyo at a gloomy-looking corner (it could've been sunny for all we know, but such is the power of creative photography). Their unexpected co-star is a slightly out of place red chair, which contrasts the cool hues of the photo but adds a certain punch to the aesthetic Araki is going for.

Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier sang praises for the Japanese photographer, who is known for the often erotic nature of his work.

"More than simply provocative, Araki's images have a powerful honesty and human poignancy that make them unforgettable. He has his own visual language, which I was very excited to see translated to the collection."
