Editor’s Notes: Bottega Veneta’s Pre-Fall collection, the first from new creative director Daniel Lee (formerly of Celine with Phoebe Philo), is showing the true potential of menswear to be both elegant and contemporary. It’s almost how Celine mens may have looked if Hedi Slimane had not taken over. The mens Pre-Fall collection leans into the Italian notion of sprezzatura, a kind of ease and nonchalance, reflected in the louche and loose proportions, which are mixed with sharper tailoring notes and sporty sneakers.
