Bottega Veneta PF20 saw that it’s creative director Daniel Lee made it his mission to celebrate and modernise the brand’s heritage. His aim was to create an idealistic and elevated wardrobe that exhibits luxury and fluidity alongside practicality.
The collection embraces attitude, shape and colour. Supple leathers and weightless nylons offer ease and comfort, while flourishes of detail from fringes to unexpected skin-baring cut-outs to high collars on shirts offer a break from the banal. Shades of sea-foam green, aquamarine blue, as well as rich reds a la carmine and crimson are found on the outerwear, knits and suits. The silhouettes are strong and confident to empower the wearer.
Iterations of Bottega Veneta’s signature Intrecciato weave can be seen on everyday pieces, with highlights including a backpack. Its padded nylon shell is ultralight and features technical details like invisible seams, adjustable handles, and a detachable flap pocket, which come together to offer the perfect blend of form and function. Meanwhile, a shearling coat sports cut-outs that mimick the grids of the weave, while a pair of quilted loafers blurs the line with its trompé l’oeil weave effect.
Lee favours heavy-soled footwear as a complement to his sleek clothes, and his leather boots here feature a variety of bold-hued soles. The aforementioned ‘woven’ loafers have the makings of an instant classic, with their signature padded surfaces rendered in glossy leather. It is pieces like these that showcase Lee’s ability to elevate items to cult status through innovation and design.
