Since Daniel Lee joined Bottega Veneta in June 2018, he has designed more than just ‘IT bags.’ Though the Pouch, Cassette, and BV Jodie are undeniable hits, his shoes have been just as popular (and just as featured on style setters’ Instagram feeds). With its leather goods line already maintaining steady sales, Lee was, in fact, hired to revive the Italian brand’s ready-to-wear and shoes.
Though Lee lives in sneakers himself, he has admitted that he is “kind of bored” with the current trend. In an interview with Vogue, he expressed, “Talking about Italian style, when you look at films or these great people from the past, the Agnellis, there’s definitely a done-up elegance. It’s time for that to come back in fashion.” Lee has since released the Stretch, BV Curve, Padded, Spiral, and BV Lido sandals. Each has been well-received, with the Stretch deemed the ‘most wanted shoe of 2019’.
