Fashion Girls Can't Stop Wearing "New Bottega," and Honestly, I Can't Blame 'Em
Ever since British designer Daniel Lee took the helm at Bottega Veneta in 2018, there's been a nonstop buzz surrounding the Italian luxury brand. When you have a whole Instagram fan account with almost 70K followers dedicated to your designs, you know you're doing something right. Lee has managed to completely reinvent Bottega's aesthetic and give it a sleek new vibe — hence the Instagram account, @newbottega.
Fashion girls can't get enough of the brand's now-famous square-toed heels, which are plastered all over Instagram. You've probably seen his designs on stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kylie Jenner, to name a few. My personal favourite has to be the mesh heels, which are the definition of cool. Bottega's shoes aren't the only accessory making a splash; the brand's bags are also having a moment. While Bottega Veneta has long been known for its woven leather designs, Lee took it to a whole new level by creating pared-down shapes like The Pouch, which some have dubbed the "dumpling bag." Read on to see how everyone is styling the pieces, and shop some ahead if you want to make a splurge.
