Daniel Lee has released his Bottega Veneta Wardrobe 02 collection via an incredible star-studded campaign. Utilising his impressive phone book, the Tyrone Lebon-photographed imagery includes musicians Skepta, Slowthai, Little Simz, Tricky and Neneh Cherry, actors Malachi Kirby and Valeria Golino, director Melina Matsoukas, artist Sue Webster, stylist Venetia Scott and skater Oumi Janta, amongst many, many more. Placed against a white backdrop, each talent is given space to express their personality.
As for the Pre-Fall 2021 collection itself, Lee is providing us with a much-needed dose of glam, driven by his signature strong tailoring, dynamic shapes and vibrant hues. Outlined by cinched waists and dramatic shoulders, glistening crystals, sequins and rhinestones create an embellished sense of occasion, while pops of Lee’s ‘Bottega Green’ punctuate the collection; as incredible feathered trousers, paillette dresses, and a structured, vinyl trenchcoat.
Meanwhile rollerblading Instagram sensation Oumi Janta spins on eight wheels in a dress drenched in sequins and an appearance from Sarah Gretsy, the Central Saint Martins tutor Lee studied under, offers a touching moment of intimacy from the designer.
