There has been much to say about creative director Daniel Lee and his installment behind the helms of Italian Maison Bottega Veneta. From his iconic and tastefully provocative campaigns with English photographer Tyrone Lebon to the era of the new idol with the Knot, Cassette and Pouch bag, Bottega Veneta has managed to reimagine fashion into new contemporary landscapes.
Following on from its success of Salon 01; the long awaited and anticipated Wardrobe 02 has officially arrived. This time, a wardrobe designed to transcend trends and as a break between the Salon collections, Daniel Lee delivers a ready-to-wear world with purpose, consistency and essentials to be loved and lived in.

Towelling knit dresses and robes accompany Bottega Veneta's new Wardrobe 02, playing to creative director Daniel Lee's chosen theme in exploring domesticated glamour. Muted hues in neutrals such as camel, black, grey and shades of white play backdrop to the stark contrasts of Bottega Veneta green, canary yellow, reds and cyan blues.
