Bottega Veneta FW19: A Quiet Storm Arises from Daniel Lee’s Runway Debut
Modern, sophisticated and sensual. Daniel Lee’s highly anticipated runway debut for Bottega Veneta was nothing short of his quiet promise to honour the House’s legacy and respect for craftsmanship. From a distance, the clothes moved effortlessly and gently hugged at the curves while the models walked down the runway with relative ease and grace. The fluidity and movement was spellbinding, not too structured or constricting but not too loose either – the result was a fine balance between the classic and the contemporary, suited to the modern women of today. Look closer and you’ll catch glimpses of Daniel’s honed eye for intricate detail. From elevating the significance of the House’s intrecciato weave through skirts, coats and shoes, to the distinctive triangle accent seen on both RTW and accessories, traces of a new identity can be found throughout the collection.
