Knitwear is a big component of the collection and come often with unexpected cut-outs that reveal panels of skin. The jumper featured here can be worn with or without the turtleneck which is cleverly attached at the back. If you’re not as adventurous, consider styling the piece with a t-shirt or a lightweight sweater for more warmth.

Lee pushes the boundaries of Bottega Veneta’s luxurious leathers with his moto inspired looks. The curved zipper (which is even trickier to accomplish in leather) and padded bodice are reminiscent of the interiors of fancy Italian sports cars. The curvilinear seams bring a softness to the look much like how the harsh concrete building has its corners rounded off.

By juxtaposing a heavy wool coat with a diaphanous, sheer knit worn under, Lee brings out the inherent qualities of both materials. The smooth, dense almost scuptural wool against a filmy textured knit feels sensual without being overtly erotic. The side seam of the coat that’s been sliced open, coyly reveals whats under as you move.
It’s amazing to see what Bottega artelier’s are capable of producing. Modules of leather are pieced together to form a latticed shield. This coat acts like an armour for a new generation of vigilantes. Coat-on and you’re ready for anything.
Like the brutalist buildings that dot our skyline the collection is a study on form, material and rigid geometry. The contrasts presented are an alluring proposition and we’re left wanting more from Lee’s new vision for Bottega Veneta.
