In the last years Bottega Veneta was one of the brands that never really caught my attention but this changed yesterday when I stumbled upon the Pre-Fall 2019 Collection by Daniel Lee. Lee who came to Bottega Veneta from Céline in July to replace Tomas Maier showed a new direction for the brand and I must say – I'm pleasantly surprised. I really love the cuts, the color scheme he went for and also the photography (including the models) of the whole collection. I wouldn't mind to own a couple of pieces since they combine an edgy look with the ability to actually be wearable. Since Phoebe Philos area at Céline ended and Hedi Slimane presented an awful future for one of my favorite brands it's time to look out for new brands that transport that vibe. I'm already excited to see his Fall show in February. What are your thoughts on the new collection?
