FashionIndie may not have invented the mixtape — *cough* download it on the right *cough* — but for the sake of this article, I’m claiming that we did. And now Bottega Veneta is stealing our very original idea by putting out their own mixtape featuring music from their various runway shows and stores, selected by creative director Thomas Maier. We’re so suing your $500 designer pants off, Maier. 

Bottega Veneta Taking a Page Out of FashionIndies Playbook

Entitled Intreccio Uno, the compilation was mixed by Maier’s friend. Parisian DJ, Michel Gaubert and comes in the form of a jewel-encrusted double-disc album, available online and in Bottega Veneta stores come November.

Okay, they may have trumped us with the jewel-encrusted part, but what would you rather listen to? FashionIndie Mixtape Vol. 4 with such baller mixes as the Gossip‘s Beth Ditto covering the Aaliyah classic “Are You That Somebody?” or a smattering of French pianists and Norwegian superproducers? No offense to the French or Norwegians — at least no more than usual — but Timbaland always wins.

Plus, Michel Gaubert is no DJ Chachi. And that’s just in terms of hotness alone. #justsayin’ [Telegraph]
