Bottega Veneta appoints new creative director

Bottega Veneta has appointed British designer Daniel Lee as its new creative director.

Lee is a graduate of Central St Martins College of Art and Design and most recently held the role of director of ready-to-wear design at Céline.

He replaces Thomas Maier, who left the firm after 17 years earlier this week. 

Before joining Céline in 2012, Lee worked at Maison Margiela, Balenciaga and Donna Karan.

Chief executive of Bottega Veneta’s parent company Kering, François-Henri Pinault, said: “The singularity of [Lee’s] vision inspired by a very personal creative approach convinced me that he was best able to open a new chapter in the history of the house.

”His work is characterized by great rigor, a mastery of studio expertise, a true passion for materials and an energy that I cannot wait to see take shape at Bottega Veneta.”

Lee said: “Maintaining the ingrained codes of the house, craftsmanship, quality and sophistication, I look forward to evolving what has gone before, while contributing a new perspective and modernity.”
