Bottega Veneta announced that Phoebe Philo’s former right-hand man Daniel Lee will be joining the Italian luxury brand as its newest creative director mid last year. With Celine, Maison Margiela, Balenciaga and Donna Karan in his repertoire, all eyes were on the 32-year-old fashion designer to see how he’d make his mark with his first collection for the Italian luxury label, Pre-Fall 2019.
Now that we’ve actually seen his collection, it’s safe to say he has keen understanding of the brand’s DNA and elevates it with personal flair. Lee’s first collection for the brand launched in Singapore in conjunction with Bottega Veneta’s newly refurbished boutique at ION Orchard, earlier last month, and includes exclusive Pre-Fall items and colours that will only be available in the ION store.
The revamped store boasts an openness and contemporaneity featuring pristine white walls, covered in plaster with a Roman travertine texture; dark ivory limestone and pale carpets; and vintage-inspired leather seating, for when you need to sit after shopping so much.
