Behold: Daniel Lee’s impact.
Another jam-packed day checked off our New York Fashion Week schedule, and plenty more to go. On Saturday, some of our favorite moments from the shows included Kate Spade New York’s pretty garden party, Christopher John Rogers’s runway debut (and standing ovation), Christian Siriano’s artsy catwalk and Brandon Maxwell’s newly launched menswear range. (On the see-now, buy-now front, Ralph Lauren also presented its Fall 2019 collection.)
Another designer had his own major fashion moment, too, mainly among the street style crowd. Bottega Veneta bags and shoes, designed by Creative Director Daniel Lee, who was hired by the luxury Italian house in 2018, were everywhere. It’s no surprise that the Céline alum has made a major impact on the sartorial set: Lee’s debut runway show from February in Milan received stellar reviews, and we’ve already spotted plenty of his pieces all summer on our Instagram feeds, including the “Pouch” clutch, square-toe sandals and his reimagined take on the brand’s iconic Intrecciato weave. It was only a matter of time before these popular items took over our wardrobes for fashion month.
