Bottega Veneta’s Wardrobe 03 collection marks the final collection designed by Daniel Lee. It encapsulates everything Lee has been about at BV: brilliant colours, clever fabrics and new glamour. Wardrobe 03 is his idea of essential, ‘everyday wear’ that is full-throttle and very much the everyday wear for his superfans Rihanna and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. For his final finale, mini halter-neck crocheted dresses - using technical yarn - are beach party or disco Celebrate! The puffer jackets are epic with diagonal designs in shades of Daniel Lee’s BV: greens, blues, oranges, all electric. Slouchy knits and cardigans are paired cozily with mini skirts, robes are oversized and corduroy comes through on matching jackets, trousers and yes, even the shoes, are shades of green. The new classics remain: loose jumpsuits, trench coats over low-waisted baggy crystal-punctured suede pants, bags are buckled, and faux fur is fluffed up in our favourite colour combo, candy pink and hot red. The BV clogs shine in heeled metallic silvers and golds, fine square-toed heels lace around the ankles and are also elevated to platform heels. The words for this season, according to the house, are: escapism, fun, pop, colour, feel good, humour. It’s a nice note to leave on.
