After teasing his pre-fall collection for Bottega Venetta, Creative Director Daniel Lee will be unveiling his full fledge vision for the Italian luxury house with a co-ed show. While not yet a household name, even in the fashion industry inner circles, Lee previously worked at Céline as director of ready-to-wear under Phoebe Philo. That pedigree alone is enough to get the Philo-starved fans buzzing.
Lee shares the similar ethos of a quiet and tasteful aesthetic, one that is championed not only by Philo, but also ex-creative director of Bottega, Tomas Maier. Where Lee differs is a focus on a silhouette that melds both masterful tailoring and sportswear, made in ultra-luxurious fabrics. There is also a sense of ease to his garments, and his take on the house signature intrecciato, enlarging it and weaving it into the straight cut leather trousers is nothing short of brilliant.
We could go on waxing lyrical about the excitement of a new dawn at Bottega Venetta, but why read about it when you can watch it live? Enjoy guys.
