Daniel Lee‘s talent, debuting as Creative Director for Bottega Veneta, is tangible on the Milan catwalk. The Bottega Veneta men’s and women’s collection for Fall Winter 2019/20 is an extraordinary mix of audacious contrasts, an ode to freedom, to self-expression, to sensuality.
Tradition and modernity come together in a heterogeneous collection composed of dark, minimal, sexy and timeless garments. It is an exercise in refinement and attention to details, noble fabrics and precise silhouettes.
The craftsmanship, the heart of the brand’s identity, is always present, evolving thanks to a vigorous dose of modernity combined with classical technique.The shapes are geometric, the volumes are wide and enveloping, the leather is the protagonist for coats, shirts and skirts revised in a new way; tailored outfits blend with more sporty looks.
A collection characterized by different elements: the flashy and the refined, the high and the low, the hedonism and the intellect.
Even the color palette is a reflection of these contrasts, an encounter between dark shades and sparkling elements, natural tones alternating with green, red, light blue and animalier.The braided becomes maxi and even the accessories undergo a mutation: from décolleté to amphibians, from maxi bags to evening bags covered with feathers.
The Bottega Veneta collection for Fall Winter 2019/20 was created by Daniel Lee to arouse emotions: pleasure and joy, desire and beauty.
