Bottega Veneta recently scooped a host of prizes at the British Fashion Awards, reflective of the critical acclaim and strong sales numbers garnered by new creative director Daniel Lee. Lee’s take on the nearly-60-year-old brand’s signature craft is more progressive than ever before, as Fall/Winter 2020’s unisex runway utilizes both classic craft and progressive technology.

One of the clearest signatures of Bottega Veneta is the Italian label’s intrecciato technique, a delicately-layered weaving pattern that often elevates the house’s bags, footwear and other accessories. FW20 repurposes the intrecciato for clutch bags (conventional, yet covetable) and length genderless puffer vests (contemporary), utilizing the latter silhouette to highlight the inherent comfort at the core of his aims for Bottega.

Menswear and womenswear alike were cut with stretchy jersey textiles and accented with generous knitwear, lending inherent ease to the tailored suits, flowing parkas and trim trench coats. Clunky square-toed boots offer a blunt counterpoint to the draping trousers and generous shearlings, simultaneously reinforcing the sudden crop of select polo sweaters and blazers.

Stores like HBX and SSENSE will offer the latest goods from Bottega Veneta later this year.
