What Went Down at the Bottega Veneta’s Detroit SS22 Show

The story began in London, then Berlin. And for the third instalment of Bottega Veneta’s Salon 03 shows it showcased its ready-to-wear presentations in the US – Detroit specifically. Daniel Lee, creative director of the Italian luxury fashion house Bottega Veneta staged a Detroit takeover influenced by his love of the technical and creative spirit at the heart of the Michigan city. Scroll to get the full deets on what went down at the Bottega Veneta’s Detroit SS22 show.

Daniel Lee chose the Michigan Building in Detroit to set up camp, a former theatre turned parking space and now a multi-faceted co-working venue – as is so often the way.

Detroit has long had a reputation as the birthplace of techno, which originated in the mid-1980s when the city was already in steep decline. If you can recall, techo is one of the many loves of Daniel Lee and the former club-night pays homage to just that. Detroit has always been a city that appreciates design and is led by innovation and is this spirit of ingenuity, that in collaboration with the Detroit community Bottega Veneta intends to celebrate.

During his stay, Daniel launched Bottega Firehouse in Corktown, Detroit at 1201 Bagley Street – a creative hub that collaborated with Detroit creatives to develop the space, and would remain open through 16 January 2022. It features an Underground Music Academy, a reading room by Asmaa Walton, design works by Chris Schanck and Aratani Fay, textiles by Substudio, furnishings by Donut Shop, ceramics by Hamtramck Ceramck, relief sculptures by Sophie Eisner and a selection of printed matter curated by Ruben Cardenas – according to press notes.

Star studded, in attendance were Mary J Blige, Lil Kim, Burna Boy, Kehlani, Selah Marley, Zazie Beetz, Slick Woods, and Sasha Lane – the runway was also star-studded, with Lourdes Leon (offspring of one Madonna) casually taking a stroll down the catwalk.

The palette was mostly black and white with hits of orange and Bottega green (a color so synonymous with Lee’s Bottega we couldn’t imagine Bottega without the hue). The collection featured sustainable shimmering paillette-covered dresses and parkas (large windproof jacket with a hood, designed to be worn in cold weather.) skillfully manipulated with metal threads.

Daniel was able to reinvent himself with new triangular sandals, sling-backs and colour-pop trainers that come in “spongy technical towelling”, and the intrecciato Cassette bags.
