Elite Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta has announced the appointment of Daniel Lee as its new Creative Director starting July 1.

Daniel Lee, a former director of ready-to-wear design at Céline under Phoebe Philo, will succeed Tomas Maier, whose departure was announced on Wednesday after 17 years in the role.

The 32-year-old British designer is a graduate of the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and also previously worked at Maison Margiela, Balenciaga and Donna Karan.

"I’m both honored and excited to continue the legacy that has been created at Bottega Veneta over the last five decades," said Lee in a statement released by Kering, the company that owns Bottega Veneta. "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."

In addition, Kering CEO François-Henri Pinault had this to say of the young designer, "I am very pleased to welcome Daniel Lee to Kering as creative director of Bottega Veneta. The singularity of his 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."

Now, in other style news, sacai and ‘The New York Times’ are all about the “Truth” in their latest collab.
