Last month, Daniel Lee shockingly announced the end of his tenure with Bottega Veneta. The designer is tasked with catapulting the Italian fashion house to cult status but before Matthieu Blazy takes the helm, Lee will release his latest “Wardrobe 03” collection.

Unlike the brand’s Salon line, the Wardrobe collection (pictured by Tyrone Lebon) serves as a break between major seasonal outings and features easy-to-wear basics mixed with high-impact, on-trend pieces. For Lee, the look-strong 62 collection is rooted in a sense of escape, escaping your daily routine to dream and seek adventures in the distance (if only through clothing). It seems appropriate given his departure from the brand.

From bold graphic prints and unique muted color hues, Wardrobe 03 doesn’t stray from its cult style elements. Fuzzy cartoon textures, voluminous silhouettes, and cult new accessories take center stage in this collection, but that doesn’t mean it’s not wearable. Within the androgynous looks are pieces that you might already have in your own wardrobe, albeit up to date. Think denim jackets and jeans, backless dresses and fan favorite trench coat.

The technology is integrated into each fiber of the collection. The new denim knit took over a year to develop according to the brand while other pieces are designed to perform. The fabrications range from technical nylon to suede perforated with crystals.

As for the range of accessories (a big selling point for the House), jewelry has developed around the idea of ​​found objects. The classic Bottega Veneta bags are redesigned in full rubber with the famous Intrecciato interpreted in the same material and the technical bags for workers are redesigned with craftsmanship.

In an ode to ’70s style, there’s a chunky, platform-heeled shoe in square-toed knee, court, flat strap, and ankle styles, aptly titled the “Tour.” Another shoe dubbed the “Ripple” is a slip-on with a wavy sole, both laced and slip-on.

Thank you, Daniel Lee!
