And these are all our favourite pieces

If you’ve been a fan of Daniel Lee’s revitalisation of Bottega Veneta, you won’t want to miss his Wardrobe 03 collection.

Conceptualised as a between seasons collection for the Italian luxury house—other brands call this their resort or cruise collections—its offerings are usually high impact essentials that give fans a taste of what’s to come. A fashion amuse-bouche, if you will.

Now, back to why you won’t want to miss it: Wardrobe 03 is Lee’s last collection, and is chock full of pieces that reflect his visionary approach to quiet luxury. Think neon bright colours—Bottega Veneta’s now iconic green, lime, shocking orange and pink—contrasted with sleek silhouettes, fuzzy, tactile surfaces, back-baring minidresses, and, not forgetting his covetable accessories.

New classics like the Casette, Point and Jodie bags have been given an update with the season’s colours and textures—some have also been reimagined in rubber, with the intrecciato weave stamped on the material for a trompe l’oeil effect.

Accessories like belts and jewellery also showcase a hidden edge, taking their inspiration from found objects. Hooks? Spotted on this season’s necklaces. Rope? Fashioned into a belt. Bits and bobs? Turned into precious earrings.

Oh, and get this: the ugly shoe trend is out in full force. Clogs are undoubtedly the star of the show, with full rubber versions available in brilliant colours, or, if you want to be purist, with a wooden sole and heel. Elsewhere, pointed toe mules, square-toed pumps and platforms continued the influence of the ’70s on Lee’s work.
