Daniel Lee's penultimate Bottega Veneta collection, the 62 look-strong Wardrobe 03 collection is fittingly rooted in a sense of everyday escapism and encourages us to evade daily humdrum realities by dreaming and searching for adventure. As it revisits the past, present and future of the Vincenza-born luxury house, Wardrobe 03’s line-up of novelties provides the perfect punctuation on the captivating chapter that was Daniel Lee’s Bottega Veneta.
Now is the time to escape and to dream, so immerse yourself in the Bottega Veneta greens of parakeet, kiwi, caterpillar and more as LN-CC renovates the carpet room inside its Dalston-based HQ to celebrate the launch of Wardrobe 03.
Today, Bottega Veneta is an award-winning, imagination-igniting, possibility-pushing vision of truly modern luxury. From the moment he took the helm at Bottega Veneta in 2018, Daniel Lee reflected and refracted the image of the luxury house to create the luxury brand of now. Through Daniel’s distorting, ever-revolving kaleidoscopic lens a familiar luxury instantly becomes otherworldly, yet wearable. Ultimately his renovation of Bottega Veneta has always been about creating clothes to take, to try, to live in, and love. This soft-power mantra is at its loudest within its Wardrobe series.
Launched at the end of 2020 for Pre-Spring, the Wardrobe 01 collection marked a new beginning of go-to staples punctuated with high impact seasonal pieces. Focussed on providing the pieces that will forever hang in our wardrobes, the curation of versatile elevated everyday wear encouraged us all to live our best lives. Through playful subversions of modern luxury iconography, manipulations of house signatures and design pillars of colour, contrasts and layering, the Wardrobe series reminds us of fashion’s transportive and transformative power. Wardrobe 03 encapsulates these powers of sartorial freedom and self-expression by encouraging us to dream. Today, these powers are more vital than ever.
Affirming the fundamentals of the new Bottega Veneta DNA, Wardrobe 03 is steeped in escapism and fun, but doesn’t forget the functional as it stirs every sense. As classic indigo denim is treated to triple parakeet stitch embroidery, letters spelling Bottega Veneta are randomly distributed all over knitwear, a new jacquard takes inspiration from pipe cleaners, while bright and washed hues collide and it-ness is injected into must-have bags, there’s playfulness and experimentation at every turn. Blurring the lines between art and utility in signature applications, these are inviting garments and accessories that want to be worn, bags that want to be held and footwear that want to explore the world with you. Try them, touch them, wear them and love them.
