Regarding exquisite dressing, Daniel Lee of Bottega Veneta claims that what is important now is not only what to wear, but also how to wear it. Frankly, minimalism is on the way. Putting on a suit this winter (or an understatement of appearance) requires wisdom and agility; this is exactly what the extremely popular Lee Lee’s Resort 2020 unique tailored trousers attracts. The secret of his style? Tie the straps of the model’s lace-up sandals to the trousers.

Fashion fans (including us) will notice that Celine Celine’s AW18 series has already hinted at this trend (especially Look 24’s strappy leather sandals with external laces). This is no accident: Lee Lee was part of the team behind the scenes, and together with the team members created the final scene of the Phoebe Philo era. Elsewhere, JW Anderson’s discreet SS20 series also showed ample ease and elegance, and the straps of luxury canvas shoes were tied to the pants of the large beige trousers.
