An audible gasp could be heard from the OF office when images of the very first collection by Daniel Lee for Bottega Veneta was released to the public. The Pre-Fall 2019 collection was strong yet feminine and the kind of wardrobe that most girls .. my team included.. could imagine themselves wearing .. Bottega Veneta staff uniforms? Ok sounds good to me.
Mr Lee’s previous appointment at the house of Céline under the guidance of Pheobe Philo was well noted and certainly has contributed to his sensibilities when it comes to dressing women how women loved to be dressed. But it is also very clear the Daniel Lee has his own sense of direction and has quite effectively captivated millions of women all around the world with his design approach and aesthetic in such a short amount of time.
It only seemed natural then when I realised that Matchesfashion.com has by far the most enviable selection of Bottega Veneta online that I would have to try some of Mr Lee’s work for myself.
Waffle embossed leather skirts, perfect power heels and THE pouch bag of 2019 are enough to get anyone excited. In fact, after placing an order for myself I realised that there could be no better way to create uniformity with my colleagues than to outfit co-ordinate … we’ll take 3 more of everything, please…
