Gucci invites you to Milan Fashion Week
Hedi Slimane’s takeover at Celine has been a hot topic over the past year, with many fans of Phoebe Philo looking elsewhere for her signature minimalist aesthetic.
Brands like The Row and Loewe aren’t far of the mark, but the Philophile in us is expecting the new pieces from Bottega Veneta Fall 2019 collection to be the next best thing.
Lee has already indicated to the clean and sophisticated finish through the recently released Pre-Fall 2019 look book that showed tonal dressing, oversized coats, sharp tailoring, contemporary use of leather and geometric accessories.
Apart from #oldceline, the 32-year-old British designer has an impressive CV with stints at Maison Margiela, Balenciaga and Donna Karan.
What can we expect? A fresh take on the classic codes of the Italian house with elements of streetwear – maybe a sneaker or two – but mainly elevated elegance for every day.
