Bottega Veneta and its creative director, Daniel Lee, are parting ways.
Lee, who has been at the creative helm of Bottega Veneta since July 1, 2018, brought new energy to the brand and has greatly contributed to the new momentum that it is enjoying today.
“I would like to thank Daniel for his dedication to the House over the past three years,” said Leo Rongone, CEO of Bottega Veneta. “He provided Bottega Veneta with a fresh perspective and a new sense of modernity, while remaining respectful of the brand’s fifty-year heritage. The remarkable growth of the brand over the last three years bears testimony to the success of his creative work.”
“I am very grateful to Daniel for having brought his passion and energy to Bottega Veneta,” commented François-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of Kering. “His singular vision made the House’s heritage relevant for today and put it back to the center of the fashion scene. I would like to personally thank him for the unique chapter that he has written in the long history of Bottega Veneta.”
“My time at Bottega Veneta has been an incredible experience,” added Lee. “I am grateful to have worked with an exceptional and talented team and I am forever thankful to everyone who was part of creating our vision. Thank you to Francois-Henri Pinault for his support, and for the opportunity to be part of Bottega Veneta’s story.”
A new creative organization for the brand will be announced soon.
