At an all-time high of “New Bottega” fever on Instagram, the street style scene, and editorials, Daniel Lee had a lot to live up to for his second collection at Bottega Veneta. For spring, there were new iterations of the current puffy leather sandals that have flooded all our Instagram feeds, along with new quilted leather bags to match. But the creative director focused on honing in on the brand’s knits and buttery leather pieces—which ended up ultimately defining this collection. The cutout sweater dresses, leather Bermuda shorts, and outerwear were minimal, yet strong—proving Lee’s “less is more” vision has staying power for the modern woman. Throughout the predominantly neutral looks, pops of bright orange and pale baby blue stood out for a subtle ‘70s color palette. But again, it was less about the colors or the It accessories and more about the minimal silhouettes and cuts, all of which hit at just the right places.
