All Eyes On Daniel Lee At Bottega Veneta’s SS20 Collection
Daniel Lee’s Bottega has been a force to be reckoned with. This 32-year-old British Designer Is brething New Life Into Bottega Veneta's Propitiatory Themes and is making his mark, most notably with his staple leather pouch clutch and quilted intrecciatto heels that have been worn by just about any-and-everyone.
Creative Director Daniel Lee is making Bottega reach new heights yet again, and is wasting no time in creating a clean yet sensual Bottega Veneta, and is set on growing and rebuilding the brand’s luxury DNA through his work with each collection. Lee has successfully amalgamated his knowledge from Céline with his current position at Bottega Veneta, which has been made evident on behalf of his competitors, which have already begun taking cues from him and his work from both fashion houses.
In his third collection for the luxury house, Lee has defined his design codes this season, which translated to an overwhelmingly amount of buttery leather, fine tailored everyday pieces we guarantee to be a hit with celebrities, and quilted intrecciatto heels in just about every colour you’d ever need! Lee has moved the leather clutch bag conversation into new territory regarding styles and materials - though we can’t say we’re too keen on the new tiger-print pattern.
Lest we forget to mention the menswear pieces in their latest SS20 collection, as it was far from monotonous, but far from being discussed as much as it should’ve been. The menswear was kept with a central dark-theme, and we saw looks which featured exaggerated proportions in a tailored two-piece, followed by an oversized leather anorak with drawstring detailing, and then a Burberry-esque beige maxi trench coat. Footwear this season - like always - was kept simple and minimal; leather loafers were worn paired with socks. I can’t say exactly who the Bottega Veneta menswear client is and what their preferences are, but I can only guess that they were very much pleased with the SS20 collection.
