What can be more alluring than the image of top model Saskia De Brauw in a slick leather trench coat? Lee let the world in on his plans for Bottega Veneta with a raw and sensual campaign that also ushered the brand into a new age of minimalism. A finely ribbed tank top, an understated jacket and a louche pair of leather trousers were the other stars of the Tyrone Lebon-lensed campaign.
Aptly named The Pouch, this handy clutch is one of the first bags rolled out by Lee. Its classic and effortless design has won over women from all over the world, including the likes of Rosie-Huntington Whiteley and Tamu McPherson. The Pouch is not only functional—it photographs well for Instagram too. Time to score one if you want to rack up the “Likes”.
Lee proved his mettle at some of fashion’s biggest names such as Balenciaga, Donna Karan and Maison Margiela. Prior to his appointment at Bottega Veneta, he was the Director of ready-to-wear at Celine during Philo’s time. Naturally, Lee’s designs have been touted as the must-haves for the discerning woman. For his debut fall/winter 2019 runway collection, Lee worked his magic on fine knits, silks and leather to conjure a fresh interpretation of a contemporary wardrobe.
Lee’s footwear designs for Bottega Veneta have been making their rounds on Instagram, too. From a square-shaped toe front sandal to a quilted low-heeled pump, the shoes are perfect companions that walk the line between formal and casual with ease.
