Oh, to live the Bottega Veneta lifestyle. That’s exactly the life Daniel Lee has been living since he took over creative direction at the brand mid-2018. Lee’s first campaign for Bottega is here and it is simply sun-kissed and chic, like every woman and man who wears it should be. Shot by Tyrone LeBon, the BV crew took to a private house in the Neapolitan island of Ischia, rock climbing naked in only the best Bottega leather heels, rooftop sunning (again, shoes only) and just hanging out by the sea and in all of the new classic, loosely tailored suits, coats and accessories in that leather in intrecciato. Lee’s reputation as Phoebe Philo’s protege is shining through. The campaign is inspired by Italian neorealist cinema and all about time “indefinable and transient, the ultimate luxury.” Yes, to have the time to lie under the Italian sun in only our Bottega accessories is luxurious. The BV world is calling us.
