The brand is part of Kering group, which manages a series of renowned fashion houses such as Gucci, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen and more, ensuring remarkable growth over the years.
In a statement announcing he was stepping down from the Maison, Lee said, “My time at Bottega Veneta has been an incredible experience. I am grateful to have worked with an exceptional and talented team and I am forever thankful to everyone who was part of creating our vision.
“Thank you to Francois-Henri Pinault for his support and for the opportunity to be a part of Bottega Veneta’s story.”
Bottega Veneta and Lee confiemd the decision was a joint one.
Lee’s previous experience entails working at other noteworthy fashion houses such as Celine and under Phoebe Philo, eventually bringing his skill set to Bottega Veneta.
As the brand’s 50-year heritage continues to make its mark in the fashion industry, a renewed sense of modernity will always remain at the helm of it.
Lee’s successor is yet to be announced.
